Every day, thousands upon thousands of new cars are being transported overseas on ships. These carriers are like floating parking garages, only they're way bigger than your average land-based parking garage. Many carry over 4,000 vehicles, some closer to 6,000. As an example, here are the stats for one infamous car carrier, the MV Cougar Ace:
Length: 652 ft. 11 in. / 199 meters
Beam (Width): 105 ft. 10 in. / 32.26 meters
Capacity: 5,542 vehicles
Engine: 15,683 horsepower
Speed: 18.6 knots / 21 mph
Cost: Over $100 million
Saying that car carriers are massively large is probably one of the most obvious statements you'll hear today, but until you actually see the inside of one it's difficult to grasp just how huge they really are. As the video after the jump shows, these ships are too big to walk anywhere, or your break would be over before it even began.
