$1M Exclusive Formula 1 Book Comes With All-Access Season Pass To Live Like Bernie Ecclestone

Nothing in Formula 1 racing comes cheap. The tickets are expensive, the teams have enormous multi-million-dollar budgets, the cars themselves cost millions to develop and the drivers regularly rank among the highest-paid sportsmen in the world. So it stands to reason that not even a book about F1 would come cheap, either.

Opus is a publishing house that creates luxurious tomes in tribute to all manner of sports icons. The Official Formula 1 Opus sells, in its "basic" edition, for $3,200. That's a lot to spend on a book, no matter how rare, but that's only the starting price. Upgrade to the Legends edition, complete with the signatures of several former world champions, and you'll be parting with $16k. Not enough? The Champions edition comes in a box made of carbon fiber — the same material pioneered for the construction of F1 race cars — for a princely $32k. But even that's not the top of the list.
