1953 Ferrari Arno XI Now Radio Controlled
The boat can be controlled from up to 500 feet (152 meter), obviously with full battery power. And since we're discussing about the battery, it's worth mentioning it can provide up to 30 minutes of operating time, with a two-hour recharge time. The remote works with eight AA batteries, none of them included in the package. Getting to the exclusive features, the boat has plush leather driver seat, brass steering wheel and instrument gauges, combined with stainless-steel clasps.
Since it is inspired by a high-speed vehicle, the radio-controlled 1:10 scale Ferrari Arno XI is equipped with a water-cooled electric engine able to reach an impressive top speed of about 20 mph (32 km/h).
“Over 200 hours of painstaking effort is involved in its construction, including sanding, staining, and finishing,” Hammacher Schlemmer wrote in the description of the gadget.
The Ferrari brand says a lot about the price of this gadget. Just think that Ferrari's limited edition Segway can be purchased for about 8,000 euros, although a standard Segway is valued at about 2,000 euros. Well, the whole Radio Controlled Ferrari Arno XI package can be bought for 2,000 dollars, a pretty high price, albeit justified by the many high-quality features.
