The idea of coming home from work and placing a glass of cold beer on a coffee table made from a Jaguar V12 milled from an aluminium mono-block has significant appeal to me. The block isn’t just for show either, the same company that produces these coffee tables also sells the blocks in vehicle-ready trim.

The engine blocks on their own cost £524.99 ($866 USD) and the coffee table version costs £899.99 ($1,484 USD).
