Avi­a­tore Ve­loce Tur­bo­jet 100

Virtuozity - - Boutique -

For the past three years de­signer-en­gi­neer Paolo Mas­trogiuseppe has been mak­ing a se­ries of hand­crafted ex­otic rac­ing en­gines that func­tion as es­presso mak­ers. Now the mas­ter crafts­man has re­leased his most am­bi­tious pro­ject - the Avi­a­tore Voloce is a quar­ter-scale mil­i­tary jet en­gine that makes cof­fee, tea or even just boil­ing wa­ter.

Made up of more than 300 com­po­nents and util­is­ing var­i­ous dis­ci­plines of en­gi­neer­ing and no com­mer­cial cof­feema­chine com­po­nents, ev­ery piece has been specif­i­cally made for the prod­uct.

De­spite be­ing a scale model of the jet en­gine, the Voloce still re­quires plenty of space on the coun­ter­top as it is 78cm long, 50cm high and weighs 28kg.

“What makes these quar­ter-scale Avi­a­tore Ve­loce units so spe­cial is that the tur­bine shells are metal spun from au­then­tic al­loys which are used for the fuse­lage skin on com­mer­cial jets. It’s very high end stuff and a night­mare to form,” ex­plained Mas­trogiuseppe.

“Me­chan­i­cally these ma­chines are bul­let­proof. When I cre­ate some­thing like this I have the cus­tomer in mind as these col­lectable mas­ter­pieces will stand the test of time and could be passed on from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion.”

Only 100 units of the stun­ning Avi­a­tore Ve­loce have been pro­duced and the price is avail­able upon re­quest. More of Mas­trogiuseppe’s mas­ter­pieces can be found in Dubai with Ex­otic Cars on Sheikh Zayed Road and the GP Store in Ci­ty­walk.
