Hey, if Tesla can make its own surfboard, then there's nothing stopping Ferrari from putting out a book. But not just any book — a limited edition, leather-bound beauty cataloguing the history of the high-end car manufacturer, stored inside of a sculpted, 12-cylinder engine complete with its own stand.

The 514-page book won't be available until October and even then, it'll set you back a whopping £4500 ($7900). Slightly more tenable is the £100 ($175) shipping cost — yes, they're happy to post it to Australia — courtesy of DHL.

As to its specific contents, I'll let the publisher Taschen do the talking:

A production unparalleled in scale, this massive tome offers unrestricted access to hundreds of photographs from the Ferrari Archives and from private collectors, to reveal the full story behind Ferrari’s protagonists, victories, past, and future.

Edited by journalist Pino Allievi and enclosed in an aluminium display case designed by Marc Newson, this unique work features a complete appendix gathering all of Ferrari’s victories since 1947.

Plans are to print 1947 copies, of which 250 will come with the aluminium engine sculpture / enclosure.
