In-between bulding some of the most fabulous cars in the world for people like Stefan Eriksson of Gizmondo fame to crash, Ferrari has partnered with Meridian Audio to produce the hand-built Ferrari F80 Home Entertainment System. Specs on the Ferrari F80 include CD and DVD for platter play, DAB/FM/AM tuner and three power amps kicking out the sounds for two front speakers and the rear subwoofer. No word on pricing or the 0 to 60.

Other specs on the Korea bound PMP include a 7-inch QVGA display, 128MB SDRAM, 64MB NAND and DivX support right out of the box.
