Beretta 486 Takes Apple Adds A Pinch Of Ed Hardy And A Dash Of Old-World Charm

Industrial designer Marc Newson for Beretta:

Beretta-486-Marc-Newon

Marc has designed for big names such as Pentax, G-Star Raw (clothing), Samsonite, Alessi, and more.  He’s currently employed at Apple, allegedly working on super secret projects on a part-time basis.  Dude is legit AF basically.

More pictures and specs on the Beretta website.  I can’t say I’m all that impressed with this 486 remix of his.  I mean it’s “nice” for what it is… but I expected some forward thinking, not just some engraving and minor improvements in ergonomics etc.  You can check out the look and specs of the original 486 Parallelo here.  I have no idea what the price on either is.

Like James (below) said, maybe this will lead the way for a Coogi Glock or a Mugatu Deagle, if fashion and firearms designers are cross pollenating.  I really want to photoshop a Biggie Smalls Coogi Glock right now, but I also want to get to bed so I can get up early to eat donuts and smile at females in business attire with those high leather autumn boots we all love, so you guys miss out.  Priorities.  *loop Just Playing (Dreams) but replace the word “R&B” with “TACTICAL” when you sing it in your head*.  I’m just playin… I’m sayin…

Thoughts?  Insta-cop if price wasn’t a likely issue?

Sort of gross looking in MHO. Don’t like how it is all smooth with all the definition of the shape taken out.
