If the Concorde turbo-jet engine currently for sale on eBay is a bit too hefty for your square footage (or simply a bit too hefty on the old bank account), perhaps a coffee table built around an authentic Ferrari engine is more your speed.

Headed to auction via Bonhams early next month with the price estimate set at €19,000 – €25,000 ($29,700 – $39,000), this monstrous flex of a furniture purchase crafted by Gervadino Design features the naturally aspirated 2.6-litre V8 engine of a Ferrari 360 Modena. Camshaft + crankshaft pulleys, fuel injectors, coil packs, and all.

At one point in its lifetime, said engine was capable of generating 350 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, revving all the way to 8,500 RPM. The Drive notes it was also one of the most reliable Ferrari engines ever produced.

Now, this bad boy can sit idle in your lounge room.

“An original Ferrari 360 engine block shell, complete with peripheral components, some decorated in Ferrari red or with the Prancing Horse,” reads the auction listing.

“Placed in the centre of a glass top cut to size in 15 mm extra white glass, supported by four polished stainless-steel legs. Glass signed Gervadino Design as well as the Ferrari 360 engine numbered 360-03. External dimensions 140 cm x 140 cm.”

For those of you who miss out on snaking this for your own – fear not. As you can purchase a slightly different version of the Ferrari engine coffee table through Tom Bates Design. Albeit at a considerable premium.

Priced at US$124,000 (AU$179,500), the other statement piece up for grabs makes use of an authentic Ferrari 488 twin-turbo V8 engine block, measuring to 54 inch x 54 inch.

Given how hard it is to come by actual Ferrari powertrains for, well… this, understandably, Tom Bates Design only has one left in stock. So anyone legitimately keen to cop should get a move on.
