His pristine Ferrari 512 BBi "Boxer" sits in the middle of Holger Schubert's living room in Brentwood, right next to stylish furniture, a built-in bookcase and a flat-screen TV that slides on tracks past walls of glass that frame an ocean view.
But Los Angeles officials are about to slam shut forever the garage door that leads to the city's most extravagant parking space
City planners have withdrawn permission for Schubert to use a bridge to connect his Ferrari's third-floor resting spot with North Tigertail Road.
The ruling by the West Los Angeles Area Planning Commission tosses a mechanic's wrench into Schubert's hopes of using the showpiece garage that last year won Architectural Digest magazine's Design Driven contest.

Some people have too much money. It’s all beautiful but silly.
He could still install an elevator on the front. Not as classy as his proposed driveway, but better than nothing.
Oh, thats way awesome! I don’t care what Councilperson he greased to get that done! And his no-brakes-recall-eggcar-driving neighbors all upset! Even better!
looks alot like DeLorean.
Ridiculous, but I’ll defend his right to be ridiculous.
Oh-oh, a homeowners association is involved. This guy would be better off taking Archimedes’ bet. (Give me a fulcrum and I will move the world.)
Too bad, I hope he keeps the spot and puts in an elevator. It would look especially awesome packed with Harleys.
I have to agree with you!
Soooo..he just sits there and looks at his car. okeydoekey
“Oh-oh, a homeowners association is involved.”
Explains it all.
If you value freedom, dealing with government regs are bad enough.
Having people tell you what kind of driveway you can have, what kind of pets you can keep, whether or not you can keep guns, or fly an American Flag, or set up a Christmas display, is enough to keep me away from any home-owners association type arrangements.
I don’t care if Joe Bubba has cars up on blocks in his front lawn next to me, as long as he doesn’t complain about about my giant American flag flying from my front lawn flagpole, my guns, my dogs, or my Christmas display.
He doesn’t just sit there. I think I see lotion on the coffee table.
I don’t see a stop block or tennis balls hanging from the ceiling....lol. No happy hour for this guy when you have to drive home and park. ;)
Ya know, you’d think they would be proud of that sort of ostentation down there. I guess when it’s a neighbor’s house rather than a public edifice, envy and jealousy sets in. They could make his original driveway plan work if they wanted to.
Could always have a valet do it. Ted Kennedy showed us the folly of trying to navigate a narrow bridge, soused.
It looks kind of neat to me.
Agreed - pretty cool. I bet he’s glad it’s not a Toyota!
