Production has begun on Italian boat company jet capsule‘s latest invention, a private 5 person and nine person taxi version. After the initial concept presentation five years ago, the unusual form was finally unveiled at the 2013 monaco show, where the design team sought to create a floating transportation device that was different from all others on the market. The innovation, which is 7,5 meters long and 3,5 meters wide is a fully customizable product that allows several configurations, including one with transformable sofas, a boat taxi with large seats and a luxury version with integrated comfort features. Several other versions are currently under development for ambulance and emergency purposes. The current capsule model has a built-in hydro-jet system that can be equipped with one or two engines, but the team are also working on the first electrically powered design to be presented in june 2014. All the jets come with an international sail certification and can navigate and operate in any country/region, and waves of up to 4 meters.

Iconic Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani has created his first ever line of Swiss-made watches, which were unveiled Sunday in Milan during the city’s men’s fashion week. Presented at the Teatro Armani in Milan (a former Nestlé factory converted into a performance space by the fashion brand), the watches are Armani’s first ever Swiss-made timepieces. The designer treated a select group of attendees to a preview of the full collection. A few key stages in the manufacturing process were undertaken with a group of craftsmen showing off the handiwork that goes into the timepieces, which are designed to mix innovation and tradition.

Greek Cypriot industrialist and art collector Dakis Joannou who green-lighted American artist Jeff Koons and Italian yacht designer Ivana Porfiri to create for him this mega yacht, ’Guilty.’ The stunning looks and amenities of this 115-feet long ship, inspired by the naval camouflage used by Britain during World War I, Guilty’s yellow rhombuses, pink triangles and blue polygons become even more amazing when reflected off the water. Onboard there are 180-degree views of the envious and awestruck rest of the world, along with plenty of bedrooms filled with museum-worthy works of art.

Vertu Ti Ferrari Smartphone


Vertu-Ti-Ferrari-smartphone

Vertu has expanded its Ti line with a luxury smartphone whose design was inspired by the Ferrari F12 berlinetta. A limited edition of 2,013 smartphones will be produced and sold. The new Vertu Ti Ferrari is the result of a close collaboration between the luxury phone maker and the luxury sports car brand. Ferrari has supplied some of the red and black leather used in the seats of its sports cars for the leather accents along the smartphone’s casing. Vertu, in turn, has treated and conditioned the leather to ensure it will withstand the constant handling a smartphone is subject to. The smartphone’s casing is made of diamond-like carbon (DLC), a lightweight material ten times stronger than stainless steel, which Ferrari uses to protect its motors from extreme heat and friction. The back of the device is modeled after the aerodynamic lines of the F12 berlinetta, while the position of the supercar’s headlights is echoed in the position of the phone’s camera. The Vertu Ti Ferrari’s feature set is not particularly impressive. Equipped with a 3.7-inch screen, an 8MP photo camera at the back and a 1.3MP front camera for video chats, the smartphone runs under Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and is equipped with Bluetooth, wifi and 3G+ connectivity. The start screen of the Vertu Ti Ferrari features the signature colors of the famous Italian car maker, and the Vertu for Ferrari App provides access to the latest Ferrari news from the brand’s social network pages and the automotive trade press. The on-screen clock is modeled after the F12 berlinetta’s tachometer, and the four available ringtones purr with the sound of the grand tourer’s V12 engine.

A Look At The Epic Lancia Stratos

The Italian classic Lancia Stratos is not only considered as one of the most iconic cars in WRC history, but as the first car ever to be designed purely for rally race performance. Claiming three consecutive champion titles in 1974, 1975 and 1976, the Stratos is still considered one of the most challenging, epic, and intriguing driving experiences today. Petrolicious chatted with Phillip Toledano about his experiences driving the iconic race model and discuses its “disastrous noises”, “intrusive” nature, and the intriguing “terror” felt while behind the wheel.

The SMEG 500 takes the diminutive Italian motoring icon of the late 1950s and 60s, chops it in half and turns the front storage compartment into an Energy Class A+ rated chest refrigerator. SMEG and Fiat are both trailblazing Italian companies that brought good design and affordable products to the masses.
