Welcome to the Classic Remise, Dusseldorf's home of the finest classic cars you can lay your eyes on.

Situated inside a converted old locomotive roundhouse, this facility serves the role of museum, car showroom and even service centre. Not only can the public wander in to gawp at masterpieces from the likes of Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin, but they can buy many of the vehicles on display as well. Car owners, meanwhile, can have their vehicles serviced and pick up spare parts.

I headed inside, camera in hand, but not before making sure my credit card was left at home. Just in case I was tempted.

This Datsun Fairlady Roadster comes with a similar design to the Austin. Not surprising, given that they're both from the '60s.

A more modern beast, the Lamborghini Aventador in a wonderful matte black finish with a V12 engine beneath. I'm not ashamed to admit this is a dream car for me. If only I could afford the 300,000 Euro (£255,000, $335,000, AU$445,000) sticker price .

You'll want to create a great driving playlist of music, although you'll need to upgrade the speakers from the '60s sound system on board.

There are a hell of a lot of Porsche cars here, which shouldn't come as a surprise, given their German heritage.

The Jeep Wrangler. This one is from 1977, although I personally don't feel the Wrangler hit its prime until it was featured as Cher Horowitz's car of choice in the 1995 film "Clueless".

You can walk all around the facility. Many cars are kept in these glass cases, presumably to keep them fresh.

The Fisker Karma Ecosport, an Earth-friendly car for those of you who want a spot of luxury with your reduced carbon footprint. The Karma was a plug-in hybrid and the interior was made from reclaimed materials.

The roof was a solar panel too, which helped power the electrical systems.
