Formula 1 auto racing may not be as popular here in the U.S. as, say, Nascar, but that shouldn't exclude us from enjoying this attractive chess set made of old Renault parts. Priced at a reasonable $36,511, this chess set uses every part of the car, just how we were taught that Native Americans used every part of the animals they killed. The chess board itself is made of the same carbon fiber that the F1 cars are made out of and the chess pieces are made from assorted cars parts hailing from the wings, cockpit and even the suspension. Materials include titanium, stainless steel and leather.

Just combine this with the IDF Chess Set that we mentioned some weeks back, and you've got the makings of a world class chess set collection. It's available now and really does cost $36,511. Sell the house; you don't need it.
