Ferrari Is First Supercar To Offer XM Radio

Written by tonks on August 9, 2007

XM Radio In Ferrari 612 ScagliettiFerrari is making history once again! It will be the first supercar to have XM satellite radio installed. XM Satellite Radio is a satellite radio (DARS) service in the United States based in Washington, DC. It is popular to have it installed in the everyday vehicles that we ride around in. But up until now it has never been in a supercar.

The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti will come equipped with XM Radio and XM NavTraffic as standard features that will be incorporated into the vehicle’s advanced audio and navigation system. Ferrari will include three years of XM Radio and XM NavTraffic service with each vehicle.

Most people thought that XM was already installed in the Ferrari because luxury vehicles, like the Aston Martin, already have it. But they have chosen now to add this feature and we are all happy that the Ferrari was the chosen vehicle.

“XM is now available from Ferrari, one of the most prestigious vehicle makers in the world,” said Steve Cook, executive vice president, Automotive, XM Satellite Radio. “Now Ferrari drivers can enhance their driving experience by discovering music and listening to sports, talk and news on the more than 170 channels of XM Radio. XM NavTraffic also enables Ferrari drivers to route around a jam so they can continue to enjoy the road.”
