An elevator for cars. You know, for &ldquo;car lovers and people who enjoy having their car next to them in their apartments&rdquo;.</p><p></p><p>Not surprisingly, this demographic is also defined by their access to at least $5 million, the starting price for one of the tower&rsquo;s 132 condos. The crowning jewel, a $32 million penthouse apartment, comes with a &ldquo;car gallery&rdquo; for seven of your eleven automobiles.</p><p>Driven by three high-tech hydraulic lifts, the elevators weight 30,000 lbs. and carry up to 8,000 lbs.
