Hey Guys,

My cousin and I are creating what people are now calling the "Top Gear" table, It will be created using a V8 Engine block as a base and will have a clear glass top being held up by 4 Pistons attached to the block.

The V8 Engine block will be a Brand New HOLDEN LS1 5.7L Block. The actual Block is shown below.

Image

We are creating 2 tables, identical to each other, one will stay with us and the other will be sold off, we have found that a few people have done similar tables around the world and this is the closest image we could find to what we are looking at doing,

Image

The original plan was to create a V12 Block table but as you would assume it isn't that easy to come across a V12 Block......

The top Glass plate can be made to any size you want it to be made to, We can also put wheels on the block but we believe that it will destroy the look of the table. The cylinder wholes can also act as whine bottle holders.

If anyone is interested in the Table send me a PM, we are putting it at a negotiable price of $2500

Our future plans are to create lamps from Pistons/Con-Rods, this is still an idea for now

Thats awsome.
I've been thinking about doing a table for myself. Would be great to use a block a bit more special but hard to get probably.
Top stuff!

Like i said our original plan was to use a V12 block, the only V12 block that we could realistically use would be a old Jag V12, but i tried to find one but couldn't, then we came across 2 brand new Holden LS1 5.7L V8 Blocks and decided to start planing it the table

You trying to tell us that there's not a single V12 Jag rusting away at a wrecker?  :eek:
