Hard drives a la Ferrari

SimpleTech (a part of Fabrik) has begun shipping a line of external hard drives with an unusually refined look. The SimpleDrive series is designed by Pininfarina, the same company responsible for cars like the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti K. The drives have suitably sleek curves and lines, and come in different colors depending on their capacity, such as a bright red for 160GB or black for 500GB.

Perhaps most notable is the top capacity of 1TB, which is still rare in terms of internal hard drives, much less external ones. Each drive currently comes with backup software and a USB 2.0 interface; May will see the release of combo USB 2.0/FireWire 400 products. Prices for the USB-only models start at $99 for 160GB.

    Ferrari owner?

    For most computer and ferrari owner will surely love this... But when someone says that they purchased the car, that is usually not true. To even go near one, you must first be given an invitation by Ferrari. After you purchase the car you must attend a driving school before you can drive your Enzo.

    The maintenance of this car must be perfect and very often.

    When people say on some website that they have an Enzo and took it over 180 miles an hour, I highly doubt that. To reach such speeds, you must be an excellent driver and has good Exhaust System because this car is not easy to drive.

    In the end, this car is amazing in every way. If anyone would like to see pictures of it or need actual proof of ownership of this car, please tell me in your comments.

    Cool gadget!!

    I think I wanna get one of this gadget for my soon to be Ferrari F40... To record how fast it is... Though I had a test drive in Florida in 1995 and thought about nothing else until I purchased the very car, still new, one year later. I have been living a different life ever since. My mind thinks of nothing but reasons to open the engine hatch or just sit in the driver's seat, hand on the neuspeed short shifter, in silence.

    A clattery, vibratory experience is her idle, but her whistle on boost and the feel of the 2-3 upshift is incomparable. Simply, she is the mecca of autosport from her day, and the last child of Enzo.

    I practically had to sell my soul to obtain the car and I would do it again. And again.
