The new Conair BaByliss Pro Volare hairdryer packs an “engine” built with Ferrari’s team using real Ferrari parts. I’m hoping that if I use the Volare my hair will just ooze Italian sex appeal.
Apparently, the Volare is the first hair dryer to use a ball bearing design, which is supposed to keep things running smooth. It’s extremely lightweight, comes in Ferrari red (natch) or black and has a turbo button to boost airspeed. Its Ferrari designed AC V12 Engine packs 2,200 watts of power, can reach airspeeds of 80mph and can last for up to 2,000 hours. I’m no hairdrying expert, but those are some big numbers (typical hairdryers last 500 hours).
It’s expensive, retailing at around $400, but it’s way more affordable than a Ferrari. And if I can get a Ferrari attached to my name for $400, I might have to buy one. [Credit: Gizmodo]
