Cars and coffee are a great mix.
If you're a diehard Porsche fan, especially of the 993 generation of the 911, then the Espresso Veloce RS Black Edition would be a great way to decorate your kitchen. The device's shape pays tribute to the look of the model's flat-six engine. The price of putting this piece of automotive art in your home is a rather steep €10,200 (£8,925 at current exchange rates), and the company is making just 993 of them.
The Veloce RS Black Edition uses some of the same materials that you'd find in an actual engine. The structure is a mix of surgical stainless steel, aluminium, and titanium. The portions resembling the engine's cam covers are carbon fibre. The engine block gets an anodised satin black finish, and the cylinder heads are anodised bright black.

This espresso maker weighs in at a hefty 21.5 kilograms (47 pounds 6.4 ounces). It measures 380 millimetres (14.96 inches) long, 420 millimetres (16.54 inches) wide, and 340 millimetres (13.39 inches) tall.
If the Veloce RS looks familiar, it's because the Black Edition is a new special model of the automotive-inspired espresso machine. Motor1.com covered the original version in 2018 when the gadget featured a more traditional look with a shiny, metallic finish.

As a refresher, the 993 generation of the Porsche 911 was final iteration of the venerable model to use an air-cooled engine. The standard Carrera and Turbo packed versions of a 3.6-litre flat-six, and the higher-performance Carrera RS packed a 3.8-litre mill.
