Those Italians are a crafty lot. When they're not building actual sporty rides, they're obsessively tinkering to create masterworks inspired by their parts. In this case, multi-disciplinary mechanical engineer Paolo Mastrogiuseppe has designed a gorgeous countertop appliance that silently screams speed and power.

The nearly 62-pound Aviatore Veloce Turbojet is solidly composed of stainless steel and aviation-grade aluminum alloys. Operation is easy: Slide it open, add water and coffee or tea, push the turbine closed and indicate your cup size.

A sleek and powerful way to start your day

When this high-pressure system isn't serving up your favorite hot beverage one luxurious cup at a time, it just sits there looking jaw-droppingly gorgeous, fulfilling its promise as a "beautiful yet functional mechanical art device."
