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

Opposite that little lot, as you walk in, is a smattering of the Rammstein rental fleet. Various Porsches and Mercedes SLs are available, but it's the odd stuff that really catches the eye. I'd never previously given much thought to driving round Berlin in a Citroen Mehari, AMC Pacer, New York Checker cab, Glas Goggomobil, Tatra 603 or, and I loved this, Sixties Cold War Soviet-era Tschaika M13 limo. But you can. Dirk Salomon, Rammstein business partner and a giant bear of a man, tells us we really should have booked ahead, and his dog growls at us, but he still lets us borrow one of his cars for a quick photo op. It's a gold Chevy Suburban, a car that takes considerable chutzpah to drive around Berlin. Or indeed anywhere outside Asswipe, Idaho.
