The Teutonic knights in charge of the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart, Germany have outdone themselves in their attempts to out-do their brethren at Audi. Not content to allow Audi to hold the throne as top dog with their Tokyo-based Forum, they've decided to build themselves the largest indoor tornado ever. Using the museum's 144 air intake nozzles, they set up a smoke machine on the ground below, had air blowing in from the sides causing a swirling effect and let the nozzles suck up the smoke. And if you don't believe us, believe the Guiness Book of World Records — who've officially declared it the largest indoor tornado.
