Everyone knows that espresso will put a little extra horsepower into your biological engine, but a company called Espresso Veloce—that is, fast espresso—aims to put an engine into your espresso making.
And it’s not a lightweight piece of equipment; the RS Black Edition espresso machine appears to be machined out of a Porsche 911 engine. Specifically, a 3.6L six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine, which Porsche enthusiasts will recognize as the powerplant pushing now-classic 1990s variants 964 and 993.
At $11K, the RS Black Edition makes a collectible kitchen-counter device, and should further excite even the most hardened and inveterate lovers of the most stimulating forms of roadgoing and gastronomical satiation. But each unit features a body machined from aluminum alloy, and its carbon fiber components contrast in the most flashily decadent manner with those in surgical-grade stainless and titanium. Those nifty cylinder heads? They’re anodized.
Best of all, you don’t have to crank it. The RS Black Edition has a pushbutton ignition.
