Online used car dealer Carvana has opened a 24-hour automobile "vending machine" in Atlanta, the first of several it plans to launch in the coming months.

The three-bay location allows customers either to pick up [SB1] cars they've purchased using the company's website, or to buy one of the vehicles in stock at the location without having to deal with a car salesman.

Informational representatives are available on site, but all transactions take place via computer.
