…Bob Turek’s Stereo is a naughty speaker system?

Bob Turek Stereo

Bob Turek’s speaker system, called “Stereo”, is a bit… unusual.

It’s part of his Object Remix series, and Stereo “forces the music source into the center of attention and creates a radically new user interface”.

Putting a hand built stereo amplifier inside of a fiberglass mannequin with an MP3 player and speakers attached to and protruding from the naughty bits and pieces probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you want a speaker system that’s hard to ignore, I can’t imagine one (or would prefer not to) that’s better than this.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Hamann LP640?

Hamann LP640 Front

Hamann, a company known for firing up Ferraris and pimping out Porsches, turned its tuning eye towards the Lamborghini LP640 recently, giving the bull quite a bit more brawn with a slew of visual enhancements. The aero upgrades include a front spoiler, rear wing, side sills, a roof-mounted intake, and covers for both the lower and upper intakes. Though available in fiberglass, I suggest the carbon fiber option for true sinister status. In addition to the looks, Hamann also adds a sport exhaust kit with coffee can tips to give some bark to the bite. Finally, “Edition Race” wheels round out the package, finishing off this “Stealth-Bomber on four wheels”.
