If Top Gear did lock-up garages…
Berlin's best kept secret is a little corner of petrolhead paradise. We go inside for a look

The first Meilenwerk [Mile Works] opened in 2004 and, like all great ideas, is fundamentally pretty simple. Space for parking is at a premium in most big cities, which is why if you wander into any NCP or posh hotel car park in, say, London, there's usually something tasty in the shadows. Personally, I'd be none too happy to leave my Enzo vulnerable to passing anarchists or negligent parkers, never mind the trouser-dropping fees these concrete monoliths charge for the privilege.
Which is where Meilenwerk comes in. Book a space in here - for a pretty reasonable €150 a month - and your car won't just be safe, it'll be on display in a glass box, mounted on a spectacular dual level along with hundreds of others. Access to it is available 24/7, the place is awash with CCTV and the entire building is temperature-controlled to maintain the perfect climatic conditions for its valuable inhabitants.
