So... this thing is intense. What you're looking at is not a car engine, although it is modeled to make you think it is one. Instead of exhaust fumes, this contraption emits shots of espresso. This monster, dubbed the Espresso Veloce is made of titanium, magnesium and aluminum, and they will only make 500 of them.

Remember the car with the espresso machine built into it? This is a bit like that, only meant to live in your kitchen. So if you are rich, caffeine-oriented and a bit of a gear-head, we may have found your birthday present. This v12 espresso machine will probably keep you running on all cylinders all day. (Sorry.)
