Lamborghini coffee maker: an expensive way to rev yourself up

Fancy car-branded gadget trend goes on and on and on.

I'm getting a little tired of this trend of luxury car companies lending their logos (and design houses) to random gadgets. I mean, come on, USB drives designed by Ferrari mastermind Pininfarina? Not to mention those car-themed cell phones , and that abomination of a Mini Cooper desk . It's basically just a reason to make pricey products even pricier.

I'm consequently skeptical about how good a Lamborghini coffee maker could actually be. Yes, it's made by big-name Tonino, and it's special enough so that only 1,000 have been manufactured, but does it really need the freaking car logo? Apparently it can even be filled with Lamborghini-brand coffee beans. Now that's really a bit much. Call me lowbrow, but I don't care how much my coffee machine costs. I just care that it can make a decent-tasting cup of caffeinated goodness to feed my addiction get me moving in the morning. This thing costs $1750--at that rate, the stuff it makes had better keep me wired all day long.
