This is a piano made for Hotels or Bars, or very very rich people. It's purely for looks, and considering it has an electrically opened lid, I actually think it's very cool. Inside is just a Schimmel 208 (I think), and the keyboard is actually curved downwards at both ends.

It's also available in different colours, like black and white. I reckon this is very very cool.

Ok, I admit - I have an Acer Ferrari monitor (G24, lovely shape and glowing orange colour), and my bro has an Acer Ferrari laptop (Red with ferrari logo), and both of them truly are marvels of artistic creativity in computer appearance.

But this Piano? Its a load of ugly butt poop!!!

If designing anything based on Ferrari, just let Acer handle it, Im sure they could have done a far far better job with designing a Ferrari piano than most piano makers can.

I absolutely adore Acer's PC designs based on the ferrari and wish they would sell their orange PC case on its own without the stuff inside for me to get, but this piano is just hideous - thats coming from someone who should actually love to have a ferrari piano alongside his ferrari PC.

You lack imagination.

I've played one of these Pegasus pianos. Metroplex Piano in Dallas had a used one for sale. I haven't been in there for a while, so I don't know if it's still for sale. The piano bench is not moveable, which is a horrible design flaw.

Overall, the sound of the piano was a bit bright, and not to my liking. I don't know if that's due to the design of the piano or if it needed some attention by a tech, but I would have never paid the price they were asking. I don't remember the exact price, but I think they may have been asking something like $60,000 for it.
