AUTOSTADT scenes in Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol
I literally cannot get over the fact that I sat through the entire Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol movie (slight bonus for Simon Pegg being in the film). What really got me through was the fact that there was an action sequence in a replica of the Volkswagen Autostadt in Wolfsburg, Germany. A team built a replica-like structure in Vancouver taking six months to construct a fully operable tower. The structure included a 35,000-pound, 78-foot tall center column that supported two 23-foot parking paddles, each of which weighed over three tons. The actual VW version is much larger. Take a look at their website. This thing is so crazy!
