Surfed around on the official Koenigsegg website and found these images of the Koenigsegg engine. This is what I call an engine. :D :bow:
I would not hessitate to have one of those engines in my living room as a sculpture. :hihi:

Thanks for the pics, The only real thing that I find appealing...or pornography about that engine, is the carbon fibre. :D
First is the design of modern day formula one engines...although, with the coffee table idea, I don't think your the first.
The ones that do blow up/warn out, get stripped down, cleaned and put into a carbon fibre stand, with glass on the sides and top, with titanium holding the glass in place and are sold for around the £100,000 mark to the richer and more fortunate formula one fans. These are sold exclsuively and privately.
What would be the second best (just missed first by a tiny amount) engine to have as a coffee table, would be a modern day Lamborghini V12, with the firing sequence of the pistons on the front of it....Got to admire the Italians at Santa Agarta for that. :asian: :bow:

You were talking about F1 engines?
Here you can buy one also: http://www.ferrarishop.com/cgi-bin/FShop.dll/prodotto.jsp?oid=1610685041
Only 20 000 €, it's not that quite expensive - but think that you get a hole F1 car from like 97 for 150 000 €. :D
(but what it actually costs to start up a F1 racer and drive it for 5 minutes is a totaly different disscusion) :hihi:

hahahaha...Very Smart Krabu...Thanks!
The engine sounds like a bargain, but it is afterall a 1997 engine, although it's still a stunner...As I forgot to mention that it's the latest version(s) that cost in the region of £100,000 with the Coffee table set up.
Thanks again! :D
