iXoost iPod dock made from an F1 exhaust

The iXoost dock is made from the exhaust pipe of a sports car, and can cost more than $9,000. Let's hope Apple doesn't change the dock connector.

iXoost

Would you spend more than $9,000 on an iPod dock? No? What if it was made from the back end of a Formula One car? That's what gives the iXoost its grunt, making each custom-made dock a "pleasure machine, coupling fine mechanical workmanship with the high-tuned nerves of a throbbing Formula One tailpipe."

This "orchestra of sound and metal" comes in three distinct forms: the 8-cylinder iXoost òt, 10-cylinder iXoost dês, or 12-cylinder iXoost dàdês. The docks stand 6.5 inches high and around 2 feet wide, with four 70W amplifiers and a 140W subwoofer.

The dock is split into two parts: the base is machined from a solid block of aluminum with "horns" described as little exhaust pipes for the speakers, and an actual exhaust pipe rescued from a high-performance sports car as a soundboard for the woofer.
