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.

Say hello to the 1960 Austin Healey, an adorable little roadster and yours for just 64,000 Euros (£55,000, $71,000, AU$95,000).

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 .

It's an aggressive-looking thing.

Come on, who doesn't want to go camping in a classic VW camper from the '70s?

An American icon. The Ford Mustang. This one hails from 1965 and is in beautiful condition.

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.

Just in case there was any doubt.

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

We're going all the way back to 1952 with this MG.

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".

A Ferrari F355 Spider.

We're heading to Italy with this orange beauty. It's an Alfa Romeo Montreal and it's wonderful.

You don't get side-vents like that anymore. Maybe there's a reason.

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

Two Mercedes and a Porsche -- a salute to German engineering.

A very interesting Ferrari 246 GTS Targa. "Price on request," which means it's a lot. A real lot.

This Donkervoort D8 GTO is designed for the track.

Another American icon here, the Corvette C1 Cabrio.

The Corvette has some great-looking wheels.

Porsche apparently also made tractors and you can see a splendid example here.

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.

The Ford GT is not an eco-friendly vehicle.

Although some Jaguar C-Types have fetched millions at auction, this model is a replica, which allows you to cruise around the country in a classic slice of British driving history for only 79,900 Euros (£70,000, $90,000, AU$120,000).

It looks great from the front.

I wish more cars had this mauve leather interior.

No surprises that there are a lot of German Mercedes cars on display.

It's not a room I'd want to try and park a fancy car inside.

A Ford Eiffel from way back in 1937, complete with badges.

Ah, some British manufacturing. Here's the Aston Martin DBS.

And next to it, the McLaren MP4-12C.

Lamborghini hasn't always been about cars that look like stealth fighters -- this 400GT 2+2 from 1966 is all about its curves.

I don't know what all these switches do, but I want to play with them all.

Here's part of the Classic Remise building from the outside.
