The best chess set in the entire world

This is one we missed for Father's Day... Yes! A chess set made out of car parts. The Renault F1 Team Collection Chess Set features all the widgets one might find in your typical F1 vehicle -- carbon fiber for the game board, titanium and aircraft-grade aluminum suspension and wing bits to serve as the pieces, and other parts that could be mistaken for a bishop until one decides to perform a closer examination. The only thing not so cool about it is the price -- this baby will set you back close to $39,000, like almost how much a Lotus Elise costs. We hope you *really* like chess.
