Espresso machines are commonly designed to fit a certain aesthetic, but these Grand Prix engine-inspired espresso makers bring an extreme edge to an otherwise dull platform of coffee making.

The expertly crafted engine-inspired ‘Espresso Veloce’ is designed and hand-built by Arte Meccanica Mastrogiuseppe. The machines are tribute pieces to the well-regarded Grand Prix engines of the nineties. The materials used are alloys such as magnesium, titanium and aluminium, which are the same types of materials used by Grand Prix racing cars. The revved-up espresso machines create rich Italian-style coffees with the help of an oil-filler.

Only a 500 of these race engine conceived machines are available, but if they’re just like the actual engines used in those races, then I’m sure the Espresso Veloce won’t disappoint.
