Caffeine lovers, start your engines.
This majestic hunk of metal is the Espresso Veloce Serie Titanio V12, a coffee machine inspired by the V12 engines of Formula One (banned from 2004, before the petrol-heads get their pistons crossed).
- These are the best coffee machines for a barista-quality brew
The half-scale engine block uses the same titanium, aluminium and stainless steel materials as its F1 inspiration, complete with blue-dyed tips. The £9,000 V12 edition will be limited to a run of 500, with more affordable V10 and V8 versions also rolling off the production line.
Here's hoping it rumbles like the real thing.
