But there is a man made tornado at the Mercedes-Benz's museum  that has caused a real storm (of visitors , who are flocking in great numbers to witness this amazing, innovative and exciting tornado.

Powered by 144 jet motors, a mighty tornado stands 112 ft tall in the German car inside museum atrium.

The tornado in fact is the Mercedes-Benz museum’s state-of-the-art fire safety system created to effectively dispel smoke in case of a fire. It takes seven minutes to whirl 28 tons of potentially hazardous smoke through the roof vents in a 112ft high tornado.


But beside its designed use, it has become a great tourist attraction and tourists and visitors line up to watch it.
