The raciest piano ever made

Ferrari cars are synonymous with speed, but pianos, especially grands, tend to be considered somewhat slower. That has all changed with the introduction of The Grand Rossa piano by ResInno Piano Innovation and Design. Designer Justin Elliott has created a piano design inspired by the 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa, which not only looks unique, it improves the piano's tonal quality.

The Grand Rossa features sleek curves that form semi-helixes on the front legs and a prolonged arch that stems from the tail leg, which appears to flow through the piano. It also comes with a musician bench with a hand-stitched diamond pattern to match the Ferrari's interior, as well as a two-tone lid prop, custom-design rubber casters and a matching music rack. Everything is painted the classic Ferrari red, called Rossa Corsa.

The Grand Rossa is currently on display at Ferrari of Tampa Bay.
