F1 Coffee Table
« on: February 26, 2020, 04:31:49 PM »
If you've gotten tired of your Ikea coffee table, here's an alternative for F1 fans.

A mid-1980's TAG-Porsche F1 engine that comes with a glass coffee table top. The engine offered is TTE-PO-1-51, which consists of the engine block, sump, heads with valves, and the distinctive TAG badged cam covers. The package also contains a glass 'coffee table' cover and a set of Spark Plugs provided by Bosch.

It is a bit more costly than Ikea at $8,500.00, but you don't have to put it together with a little allen wrench!

Hey Cossie for the price of $8,500 you'd think they could be more generous with the Glass top.  :crazy:

I'd be too afraid I'd spill coffee on the engine to buy it.  :D

It's an F1 coffee table!  You make the glass JUST as big as it needs to be and not a millimeter more!

Heck, knowing the FIA, someone tried to make a table top that was lighter and bigger, and Ferrari pointed out it was against the rules.

I preferred my coffee table....it held stuff and it cost nuttin'.
'A cracked windshield (on top of a wiiide GoodYear) from Danny Ongais's pole winning 934.
T'was Saturday practice at the IMSA '77 Daytona Finale; walking behind the pits 'saw it leaning against the fence. 'Asked what they were gonna' do with it, they said take it away and it's yours. They handed it over the fence and I immediately walked the mile and a half to my car (outside the facility) to trunk (boot) it.
The crack finally gave way washing it one time. I still shoulda kept it....:(

That is waaaaaay cool! I can't even imagine that happening today.

A good friend of mine made a coffee table out of a Goodyear NASCAR slick that was race-used by Dale Jarrett. She laid it on it's side & put a round glass top on it.

I have a Goodyear Eagle F1 tyre coffee table said to have been used by Gerhard Berger at an Estoril test in 1996 on a Benetton B196. It is a righthand rear and I doubt it would hold pressure now.
