Do you have too many big boy toys cluttering up the front yard and not enough space in the garage for you collector car? The English built Cardok is the perfect solution. The unit utilizes a hydraulic lift that allows the storage of one vehicle underground and is strong enough to support a full sized SUV on top. Doubling the amount of parking space. But if you watched the video you already knew that.
More after the jump.
With one car parked on top of the closed Cardok, the second parking space remains out of sight below ground.
Press the remote control, and the Cardok starts to lift, revealing the additional parking space inside. Within less than thirty seconds, the Cardok is completely open. For safety, the remote control has a simple ‘hold-to-run’ operation, meaning it stops the instant it is released.
A second car can then be driven onto the Cardok’s lower platform. Press the button again, and the Cardok is closed, hiding the second car from view. The driveway returns to its normal appearance; the top car can be driven away, and a passer-by would struggle to guess what’s concealed underneath.
The original Cardok incorporates a two-vehicle lift, and is designed to accommodate virtually any production car, including luxury saloons and four wheel drives.
Each platform can support a safe working load of three tonnes. A Range Rover weighs approximately 2.7 tonnes.
