Yes, you read that right.

Online-retail giant Amazon is expanding their delivery service to the trunk of your car, if you happen to be a Prime member in Germany with an Audi car, reports CNet.

Amazon is testing an Audi car trunk delivery system to Prime members in the Munich area via the German delivery service DHL.

The test "is the first step toward eventually offering Amazon Prime members around the world the ability to use the trunk of their car as a delivery location," an Amazon spokeswoman said in a statement. (CNet)

Prime customers in this area will have the "Car Trunk Delivery" option when checking out from their Amazon purchase, as well as giving an approximate location of their car. The Amazon delivery driver would also have access to a unique, one-time code to unlock the customer's car for a short period of time in order to deliver the item, according to The New York Times.

Amazon Prime is a $99 per year service that allows access to cloud storage, music, movies, and free two-day home deliveries. The company has also created the Prime Now delivery service, which delivers packages to your home or office in two hours and is available in large cities around the US, including New York, Baltimore, Miami, and Dallas.
