Hello all, it’s been a while since I’ve wrote anything here, been busy with some other stuff and life in general but I need to get back at it. So let’s start with posting something I think is a bit outrageous but yet I’m sure will appeal to most guys out there and maybe some women too. Tonino Lamborghini Mobile has recently unveiled the 88 Tauri at CES which is an Android smartphone which has a limited run of only 1947 pieces. Yes that’s an odd number for sure but that’s the year of Tonino Lamborghini’s birth so it’s significant to them at least. The phone itself has a price tag of $6,000 and for that you get a Snapdragon quad core CPU at 2.3ghz, along with 3gb of ram, dual sim capability, a 5” full HD display and 64gb of on-board storage that can be expanded to 128gb with a microSD card. The phone also has a 20mp rear camera and an 8mp front camera along with 13 exclusive ringtones from DJ Ravin. It’s a special phone so it comes with leather back available in five colors and black, gold or steel sliver metal panel. It’s running KitKat and has a3400mAh battery inside for up to 35 hours of life. It’s also hand made and numbered, but is all that worth the price? Some more details below for you and a picture…
Real luxury is in details
Sharp geometric lines and color combinations represent the iconic Tonino Lamborghini style; the famous “Raging Bull” logo on the both sides of the phone conveys the spirit of the legendary Italian brand.
88 Tauri offers 3 color variants of its metal panel (black, gold and steel silver) and is finished with top-quality leather available in 5 colors (black, blue, red, orange and brown). Each phone is assembled by hand and receives a unique device number. Only 1,947 pieces of each colorway will be created. This number was chosen to honor the year of birth of the company’s founder – Mr. Tonino Lamborghini.
