Although the first mention of the word 'Lamborghini' may bring up images of super-expensive cars in your mind, Tonino Lamborghini is a company also known for manufacturing luxurious watches and smartphones with a hefty price tag. Their latest venture in this category unleashes the $6000 Tauri 88 to the public.
The $6000 price tag fetches you a designer decal, some cool headphones, a pretentious case and a phone made from a variety of premium materials with a stitched leather finish. Even the glass covering the phone's screen is scratch-resistant and shatterproof and is in fact the same material used in Lamborghini cars.
Looking past the insane design and expensive materials, the Android smartphone promises decent but not ground-breaking features which include:
- 5-inch 1080p display
- 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 Processor
- 3 GB RAM
- 64 GB expandable storage
- 20 MP rear camera, 8 MP front-shooter
- 4G connectivity, Dual-SIM
- 3,400mAh battery
- Android 4.4.4 KitKat
Considering that the world already witnessed smartphones possessing 4 GB of RAM and Snapdragon 810 processors yesterday, it's obvious that the phone is intended for people to notice the outside of the phone rather than the inside, which actually counts. The specifications and features are neat but they certainly aren't worth $6000.
Still, if there are any die-hard fans looking to lighten their wallets, the device is available at select high-end stores like Harrods in UK or the company's own site. However you'll need to hurry because only 1,947 units of the phone have been manufactured; the number significant of the year the company was founded.
