V12 coffee machine inspired by Formula 1 engine
There are coffee making machines and there is Espresso Veloce Serie Titanio V12 Coffee Machine. Priced ÂŁ9000 (US$ 15000 USD, INR 9,22,923) a piece, this F1 inspired coffee-maker is limited to just 500 pieces.
While this price for a V12 inspired coffee machine may seem over exaggerated, it may be noted that there will be only 500 pieces produced and will be assembled from over 90 precision components each made from sold billets. Manufactured from materials such as titanium, stainless steel and aluminum, each of these parts have to conform in tolerance within a tenth of a millimeter.
Besides resembling a V12 engine externally, the coffee dispenser also has a real engine in its interiors, due to which coffee is dispensed by a high pressure pump and heat exchanger. Boiling hot water is poured into engine oil filler caps and coffee is poured into piston shaped stainless steel cups. (source)
