What would letterboxes designed by Maserati look like?

 

We are all familiar with the common, garden variety letterboxes: The boring, strictly functional boxes or the elaborate metal constructions often bearing kitschy ornamentation.

 

 

And then there is Mailbox by Born in Sweden:

Striking, innit? The streamlined form and the bright colours remind me of sports car design rather than letterbox design. It is a truly attractive object with eye-catching design. (I can’t believe I’m writing this about a letterbox!)

Unfortunately, at a price of about €600 for the large size and €500 for the smaller size, it is an object geared towards the people who drive a Maserati Gran Turismo! Or the people who cannot afford one but would love a letterbox in the style of a Maserati…

    Makes me wonder–is there a mailbox looking like a Bugatti Veyron?
