Ferrari Sound with the F80
Is that a really fancy toaster, my companion asked when he saw this thing. Nope, not a toaster. This is the F80 a new project created with Ferrari and Meridian to be a luxury entertainment center. It can be hooked up to your iPod, play CDs or tune in to the radio. But its main purpose is to look good, expensively good. Brit gadget blog Shiny Shiny recently traveled to the Silverstone Racing Circuit to check out this chic little boombox. It has 80 watts of power and comes in the five Ferrari colors of red, yellow, black, white and silver or if you are truly deep pocketed you can spring for the limited edition leather finish. The standard version sells for £1,495 (over $2,900) and the limited edition system costs £1,795 ($3,492).
