The price tag sounds a bit exaggerated for a coffee machine but it should be noted the Espresso Veloce Serie Titanio V12 is assembled from more than 90 precision components machined from sold billets. It has to conform to tolerances within a tenth of a millimeter and is manufactured from materials such as titanium, stainless steel and aluminum.

The design is inspired by a Formula 1 engine and only 500 units will be produced. The Espresso Veloce Serie Titanio coffee machine is also offered in V8 and V10 versions. Their aviation-spec titanium exhaust pipes have to stay 18 hours in a zirconium ball-polisher in order to obtain a mirror finish, while the tips have to be blued with heat to imitate the discoloration seen on racing exhausts.
