One of the most extreme parts inside a Formula 1 engine must be the crankshaft. The stresses and mechanics involved in spinning it are just mind-boggling, ordinary materials just won’t cut it inside a Ferrari. A V10 engine on an F1 typically idles at 8,000 RPM and redlines somewhere close to 20,000. Which brings us to this decorative item. It’s an actual crankshaft from the Ferrari racers, back when V10 engines roared around the paddock. This piece is mounted on a carbon fiber plate in a plexiglass case. It comes with Ferrari’s certificate of authenticity, guaranteeing that what you’re getting is the real thing. ~$4,500.
