Video: See a House Built Around a Ferrari

You may think no one loves their car as much as you, but unless you built a house around your beloved automobile, that distinction goes to Holger Schubert of Los Angeles. This new video shows just how obsessed Schubert is with his Ferrari 512i BB, which enjoys a choice parking space in the center of his home.

The video begins as the shades of the home's large front windows are being drawn, bathing the Ferrari in sunlight. Schubert explains his design philosophy and goes over the various elements of the house. Everything inside is meant to direct your attention to the car, which is parked in front of a blank white wall that serves as a canvas. The car itself is a gray late-model Ferrari 512i BB (Berlinetta Boxer), which is powered by a fuel-injected 360-hp 4.9-liter flat-12.

Schubert then describes how you pull out of the space, and the process is almost like art in itself. The car is parked on a ramp that rises to allow the car to roll out of the house without starting the engine inside. Backing out requires opening two gates and rolling across a bridge, with surrounding glass surfaces reflecting images of the car for the driver's enjoyment.

So if you'd like inspiration for your future dream garage, check out the video below and marvel at the home that could give the glass house in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" a run for its money.
