Watches seem to be the natural crossover product for supercar brands, but high-end speakers branded by Lamborghini, Bugatti, Porsche and now Mercedes-AMG make a compelling case for the niche luxury segment.
Mercedes’ performance branch is teaming up with Italy’s iXoost—the proprietors of the aforementioned Lambo speakers—to create an eye-popping audio piece penned with the likeness of the modern classic Mercedes-AMG GT.
Even the most casual observers will immediately recognize the careful recreation of the V8-powered, super-grand tourer’s radiator grille, complete with exactly 15 slats and a silver three-pointed star (The three-prong aluminum chassis on which the device sits also mirrors the Merc badge.)
There are other nods to supercar bits, including real AMG exhaust tips, hood strakes and even a three-piece diffuser in the rear, though its drag coefficient has yet to be released.
Images on a screen can’t describe how it sounds, but according to Robb Report, the racy carbon fiber chassis (i.e. shell) houses two 125-watt amps, two of six-inch subs and bass reflexes, and four one-inch tweeters that aim to deliver 360-degree high-fidelity audio. It’s a bit of a beast, measuring 26 inches inches long, 30 inches wide, and tipping the scales at 33 pounds.
No price was listed listed for the iXoost AMG Performance Luxury Audio speaker, but you can contact the brand here to place an order.
