The whole world is fascinated by Italian super-sports & hypercars. Italy would now be also known for – (curtains up) iXOOST! Okayyy, brace yourselves, you’re going to see something which you’ve never imagined of ! iXOOST – The car exhaust audio system is a unique docking station made from old car exhausts & Formula 1 exhaust pipes!
About iXOOST :-
iXOOST is an Italian company that also belongs to Modena. Wait, does it ring any bells ? – The same city where the factories of super sports car makers – Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani & Maserati are/were located here(except Lamborghini which has their headquarters nearby). And so Modena is also called the “capital of engines” !
iXOOST is created by Matteo Panini-who feels deep respect & admiration for old cars and things from Modena & Mirco Pecorari-who comes from the world of aviation!
Our senses are also unique, just as our own soundtracks are:
ourfavourite songs and all the things that bring back strong emotions,just like a Formula 1 Grand Prix.
Sight, hearing and touch are all extremes of a world which may be found today in our dock station.
And so we have risen to the impossible challenge of combining mechanics and sound.
Indeed the sound of the finely tuned engine of a sports car & a Formula 1 is inimitable. Everyone can hear it’s sound, everyone sees it but only a real passionate person would FEEL !!!
About iXOOST – The car exhaust audio system :-
The audio systems or the dock stations are hand made in Modena. You may configure your dock station & even customize it & get it delivered right to your door 😉 !
The “orchestra of sound & mechanics” comes in 3 distinct forms –
1. iXOOST OTTO
2. iXOOST XiLO
3. iXOOST Radial6
Let’s get to the handmade masterpieces made by extremely passionate people made with extreme technical precision!
iXOOST OTTO :-
Made from the genuine F1 exhaust, the OTTO immediately catches your attention. They are differentiated & available according to the number of cylinders – V8, V10 & V12 ! It has 4 speakers, 1 extended ranged speaker & 1 subwoofer ! Price:- € 6500
iXOOST XiLO :-
The XiLO consists a monocoque chassis in aluminium & wood(the base). The origin of the word – “XiLO” comes from the Greek word-xylon, which means ‘forest’.
The XiLO has 3 speakers + 2 subwoofers facing in the front side plus the coaxial sub-woofer facing downside. The coaxial subwoofer is for obtaining deep & precise bass sounds, says iXOOST. It weighs about 18 kg. Price:- € 5000
iXOOST Radial6 :-
This perhaps is more interesting. The tailpipes of supercars weren’t just enough, so Mirco Pecorari who is inspired by the world of planes decides to make another dock inspired by the design of Radial engines.
The supporting blade raises the block & the nose of the dock is carved out of a solid block. iXOOST wanted to make it so perfect that the blade closes perfectly with the nose cone and the crankcase of the back woofer to imitate a real plane engine. Price:- € 8000

The perfections & detailing of every model clearly tells us about how passionate they are! I would really love to meet them & have a chat if I ever get a chance 😀 !
I would also love to buy one of them but… IN FUTURE !(because probably my parents would kick my butt if I ask them to buy me one)
It is a perfect gift to a passionate mechanical engineer! So let’s just dream about it(coz it doesn’t cost), & which soundtrack would you love to play first on it? Share your thoughts in the comment section below! I’m waiting…
