Aviatore Veloce Turbojet 100
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.
