Ferrari has teamed up with William Optics to create an innovative and high performance of binoculars and telescopes.

Manufactures have long since realized profits not only come from the cars themselves, but also in the accessories owners are willing to buy. To that end, Ferrari has teamed up with William Optics to create an innovative and high performance range of binoculars and telescopes.

The $199 Ferrari Visio binoculars feature ultra lightweight design, carbon fiber, 8x magnification, and are powder-coated in Ferrari Red. Moving up the range is Ferrari’s $699 ZenithStar telescope which allows for magnification between 25-50x and can also be used as a camera zoom lens with the optional adaptor kit. Topping the range is the limited edition $1599 ZenithStar Anniversary Edition which pays homage to Ferrari’s 60th anniversary. Offering 20 to 65 times zoom magnification the telescope has a black carbon fiber exterior resulting in a total weight of just two kilos.

Ferraris, be they on the road or the race track, can move at such a speed that it can be quite difficult to keep an eye on them so Ferrari has joined forces with one of the world’s leading optical companies, William Optics, to produce an innovative and high performance Ferrari range of binoculars and telescopes.

The Ferrari Visio binoculars are light, high performance and boast cutting edge technology. With eight times magnification, they are powerful, while phase coating of the lens ensures accurate colour representation and yet they weigh just 305 grams. Outside, they are powered-coated in Ferrari red with carbon fibre highlights and the Ferrari logo. They are provided with a stylish Cordura storage pouch and arrive in a Ferrari presentation box, making them an ideal present.

The Ferrari ZenithStar Telescope will, with its 25 to 50 times Zoom Magnification, can pull in even faster, more distant Ferraris, not to mention the occasional extra-terrestrial object! It may be used, with its supplied prism magnifier as a telescope, or, with the adaptor as a camera zoom lens, making it an ideal race track partner. With optional prism magnifiers, it can be converted to a 130 times Zoom telescope. Like the Ferrari Visio binoculars it is powered painted in Ferrari red and carries the Ferrari logo. It is supplied with a red hard case backpack for easy transportation.

Topping the range is the telescope created to mark Ferrari’s 60th Anniversary, the Ferrari ZenithStar Anniversary Edition. Even more powerful, it offers a 20 to 65 times zoom magnification, while with the adaptor, it becomes a highly powerful 430 mm/ F6.2 camera lens. Finished in black carbon fibre, it weights just two kilos, and carries the Ferrari 60th Anniversary logo. Like the normal Zenith Star, it has a prism magnifier for telescope use and hard case backpack for transport.
