"Lamborghini's are for show; Porsche's are for go." That's a moniker my 10 year old son says to his classmates... You see, he has a friend at school that has a Lamborghini Hurican (well, his dad does) and I 'only' have a GT3 and GT4. In the school car park, it's the black Lambo that draws the crowd you see. Because, aged just 10 years old, it looks like a bloody brilliant Batman spaceship. And mine, well it looks like a fast Beetle with an ironing board on the back.
Well, that show-off from Sant'Agata has now put it's name to a set of Lamborghini speakers for your home. And the numbers are big, as you'd expect... At 800w, the Ixoost Esavox Sound System features carbon-fibre subwoofers, dramatic hexagonal cabinets and the all-important jet fighter-style starter button. Available in black, orange, yellow and red. And it looks, well, a bit like a Lambo.
Earlier this year, Porsche Design also launched an exhaust inspired speaker system. This Germanic one is decidedly more subtle (compared to the Lambo one) but does have less power - 200w. The Porsche 911 Soundbar is a high-end 2.1 virtual surround system with an integrated subwoofer made of an original rear silencer and twin exhaust module from a Porsche 911 GT3.
Let us know which ones you prefer, we know what are our favourites (unsurprisingly)... If you have to ask how much, you probably can't afford it. But, just to help you make an informed decision about which ones you are putting on your Christmas list: The Porsche system is £2,400.00. The Lamborghini System is €19,900.00. Wow.
