How sweet would it be for a Formula One—loving chess master to rock a Hamppe-Allgaier gambit on a set made from parts of F1 cars? We have no freaking clue. But there it is — a board fashioned from carbon fiber and chess pieces made out of parts of wings, cockpit and suspension. Renault will pack and ship for $36,500. That's more off-putting than a Lopez-Gianutio countergambit. [Thanks to Isaac for the tip.]
