The Dezervator, arguably one of the Porsche Design Tower’s most talked-about amenities, has been patented, proven and is almost ready for use.

Engineers recently put the finishing touches on a nine-story miniature of the final product in Chicago, and have since been putting the concept through its paces. In the video below, you can watch how the fully automated system works on a test vehicle, which is — you guessed it — a Porsche. A metallic claw slides under the vehicle, pulls it into a glass-walled elevator and lifts it to the selected floor.

Now that developer Gil Dezer has shown that his grandiose idea works, the elevator will be rebuilt inside the 60-story tower on Sunny Isles Beach. When the project is completed in the second quarter of 2016, residents will be able to take their cars up the Dezervator and park them next to their condos in “sky garages.”

Construction of the project is well underway, and only eight units remain of the 132 that were originally for sale. Prices for the remaining units range from $6.3 million to $32.5 million for the massive 16,195-square-foot penthouse that stretches four levels.

The tower, at 18555 Collins Avenue, has caught attention over its other eclectic amenities, which range from balcony plunge pools to a collection of six “man caves.”

“We are very pleased that this genuinely unique feature has come to fruition,” said Dezer, president of Dezer Development, in a statement. “The melding of these technologies is nothing short of compelling. Porsche Design Tower’s robotic parking technology will serve as a catalyst for future luxury real estate developments around the world, especially in urban cities where parking is a premium.”
