If you are a huge Formula One Racing fan, love chess, and happen to have a lot of money, then feast your eyes on this amazing collection from the Renault F1 team:
The chess set features parts from a real F1 Renault car, including the suspension, hubs, uprights, wings, and cockpit sitting. The set is made from titanium, stainless steel, aircraft-spec aluminum, sterling silver, leather, and carbon fiber...talk about a glorious range of materials!
The backgammon set is 165x165mm and utilizes carbon fiber, sterling silver, leather and Permaglass F1.
Based on the today's currency conversion, the chess set is priced at about $30,700 and the backgammon set is about $20,500...which means the full set will run you a cool $50,000. Details about the collection can be found on this site (which happens to be down right now).
