The Visio 8x25 binoculars retail for
$199. William Optics

Many of us will never be able to afford a high-performance sports car. Instead, we pretend while driving our low-end autos by gripping the steering wheel with Porsche gloves, sitting on Lamborghini seat covers, or sporting a Corvette satin jacket. Thanks to William Optics, skygazers can now combine that ownership fantasy with observing.

William Optics has partnered with automaker Ferrari S.p.A. to create the Racing series of binoculars and telescopes.

Inspired by Ferrari's Formula 1 cars, the Visio 8x25 binoculars are ideal for sporting events, bird watching, and backyard observing. All lenses are fully multicoated for sharpness.

Entirely made of automotive-grade aluminum, the Racing ZenithStar refractors are painted "Rosso Scuderia" red, used on Ferrari autos. William Optics also created a limited series of 500 black ZenithStar scopes.

Suggested retail prices for the binoculars and telescopes are $199 and $699, respectively.

With compact size of the binoculars and refractors, both will easily fit in your car's trunk. Read more about the Racing series, read here.
