The Espresso Veloce Aurum 18ct Will Take Your Breath Away
If you love supercars and coffee just as much as we do, you will surely fall in love with this extraordinary espresso machine, inspired from the motorsport world and handcrafted from common automotive materials like titanium, carbon fibre and aluminum, with a charming touch of 18ct yellow gold that seems to turn it into a real work of art.
This is probably the world’s most luxurious espresso machine; a real stunner from Super Veloce called Aurum 18ct, which plans to shock and awe every single one of us with its spectacular design and impressive functionality.
A glorious tribute to the early 90s Grand Prix engines, which once powered racing legends like Senna, Prost or Schumacher, this breathtaking machine comes in a V12 configuration, with an oil filler that doubles as a grappa reservoir, dispensers that resemble tailpipes, and many other little details which will make any petrolhead happy.
The Espresso Veloce Aurum 18ct could easily become the main attraction of your entire home, helping you impress your guests with a delightful caffè corretto, that’s served right through the exhaust tubes of this beauty, in custom, racing-inspired mugs, specifically designed to complement this stunning machine.
The 35 Kilogram engine-block is said to be almost half the size of the actual 3.0L V12 engine which inspired it, with a length of 380 mm, a height of 340 mm and a width of 420 mm; that means you can probably place it anywhere you want, even on a larger kitchen counter.
The baseplate of the Aurum 18ct is made of Jet-Black high pressure thermoset carbon fibre, while the components have been manufactured in Aerospace Grade 7075 alloy, stainless steel 316 titanium, surgical stainless steel grade 304 and anticorodal 6082 T6.
The entire engine block and the cylinder heads have been finished off in anodised bright and satin silver, while the intakes shine with black nickel; but the best part is obviously the incredible touch of gold, with Nordic Gold Billet and 20µm 18ct Yellow Gold Plating on the cam covers and a few other elements.
The Espresso Veloce Aurum 18ct will be produced in a very, very limited run, of just 10 units, each of them featuring a plaque covered in gold, with the exact number of the espresso machine in the series. Unfortunately we have no word on pricing or shipping for this amazing machine, but you could probably find out more info straight from Super Veloce.
