The iXoost is an unusual and unique dock that will let users combine their passion for super cars and their love for a quality audio system that comes with a docking station for the iPhone and iPod. Promising to deliver an unequalled listening experience, this dock station comes with fine acoustic detailing throughout producing exceptional sound quality while evoking the tradition of mechanics that’s evolved in the world of engines. Featuring a 140W active subwoofer, the extremely innovative loudspeakers pleasures the eye as much as the heart with the fantastic combination of exhaust manifolds coupled with high-quality leather that makes the colorful docks simply pop out in the cabin.
Designed by Mirco Pecorari on a concept developed by Matteo Panini, the first dock station of its kind in the world was named after a regional British pronunciation of the word ‘exhaust’. the way it’s put together is not only the only aspect of the system that makes it unique with five-axis machines being used to turn and mill the eight, ten or twelve cylinder exhaust manifold and other parts borrowed from a solid block of aluminum.
Made exclusively for iPods and iPhones, the iXoost docking station is divided into a sound horn-fitted main base with a separate sound box woofer-fitted exhaust manifold. Retro motorbikes of the 60s and 70s were the inspiration behind the innovative console of the iXoost. Entirely hand-built in Modena by local artisans, the iXoost docking station can be customized to suit customer specifications and the handmade dock comes in a EUR 5,000 standard model featuring Schedoni natural leather, titanium color and V8 manifolds while the higher spec V10 and V12 iXoosts are expected to cost between EUR 6,500 and 8,000.
