If you are a petrol head, love your Apple toys and are an audiophile, then this could be the perfect centerpiece in your home or garage.
There are innate number of cool iPhone and iPod docks available in the market, but none seem to be this captivating and good looking like these stunning dock stations. But then we couldn't have imagined anything less than spectacular when you mix Apple toys, F1 exhausts and Italy.
We are talking about 'iXoost' a company based in Modena, Italy that builds by hand these insanely cool iPhone/iPod docks out of exhaust manifolds from old Formula One Cars.
Dreamed by Matteo Panini and designed by Micro Pecorari, the gorgeous iXoost audio systems can be had in either 8-, 10- or 12-cylinder versions. They stand 6.5-inched high and around two feet wide, with four 70W amplifiers and a 140W subwoofer.
The colorful docks finished in high-quality leather is split into two parts - the base is machined from a solid block of aluminum with 'horns' described as little exhaust pipes for the speakers, and an actual exhaust pipe rescued from a high-performance sports car as a soundboard for the woofer.
