Philips flags off with the F1 AT&T Williams Shaver

Shaver was co-designed by Philips and apparently key members of the design team behind Williams' 2008 Formula One car, the WilliamsToyota FW30.

With Formula One's first-ever night race about to burn rubber on Singapore roads this September, there'll be no putting the brakes on vendors quick to sip from this trophy cup.

Among those warming up their engines at the starting line is Philips. Its $155 AT&T Williams Shaver HQ 7390 will be steering onto retail shelves in the same month.

Co-designed by Philips and apparently key members of the design team behind Williams' 2008 Formula One car, the WilliamsToyota FW30, it features Nico Rosberg's racing number for the 2008 season, No. 7, below the start button.

We're tickled by the marketing speak--"Beyond design, the HQ 7390 shaver's performance is revved up with features including ultra thin shave heads that flex to hug facial contours like an F1 car taking tight corners..." Though what's probably more useful to users is the shaver's waterproof capability for shaving in the shower and easy cleaning, rather than its F1 trappings.

Still, if you're a Formula One addict who fancies owning a piece of Grand Prix history on your grooming kit, here's your chance. Too bad, grid babes not included.
