Audio specialist IXOOST from Italy, in conjunction with Pirelli Design, has launched a unique Bluetooth wireless speaker that’s a scaled-down version of a Pirelli P-Zero racing tire. The half-scale replica is the same size that Formula One teams use for wind-tunnel testing. The P-Zero Sound Speaker is available in nine different trim colors that reflect the different tire compounds that the teams can select for specific race courses (depending on track and weather conditions), such as yellow (soft), orange (super hard), purple (ultra soft) and blue (wet). Each speaker comes with a one-inch tweeter and a four-inch mid-woofer, and is fronted by a six-inch replica wheel. You can order one for 2,400 euros, or about $2,800 from www.ixoost.it.
