I know I’ve said it before, that when it comes to luxury cell phones I’m a Vertu girl, but I have a place in my heart for anything Lamborghini. Not too long ago, Tonino Lamborghini introduced the Spyder cell phone, a blend of elegant style and innovative technological performance. Tonino Lamborghini, the son of the legendary Ferruccio has been blending fashion with the performance engineering the that Lamborghini name has represented for over half a century now. Tonino Lamborghini is celebrating their 30th anniversary in technological style with the new special edition Spyder Supreme Diamond deluxe luxury cell phone.
The phones are of Italian design and are hand assembled in Switzerland, where over 70 components of inner body are hand crafted and assembled. The front of the phone is encrusted with 7.8 carats of white diamonds from top to bottom. The back of the phone has the battery cover uniquely clad in crocodile leather. You will find the legendary Lamborghini bull emblem stamped in 18k gold on the front and rear of the phone. The Spyder has a 2.2-inch scratch-resistant sapphire crystal LCD screen with 240 x 320 resolution. The technical features aren’t on equal scale of exclusivity though. It has a 2.75G dual-band operating capability on GSM 900 & 1800 networks, along with an external 4 GB memory support, 3.0 Megapixel camera with auto-focus, and a hidden SOS signal button for emergencies. This piece of luxury technology will run you $36,950USD.
The supreme diamond series continues with two other versions; The S650 & S660. The S650 model will have 2.5 carat diamonds adorning the body along with the black leather back. The price tag for this one is $10,000USD. The S660′s front face will be covered in 5.9 carats diamonds, and will also have white crocodile leather back. You’ll can get all this for the meager sum of $16,419USD a piece. The supreme diamond series has been made limited to only 300 phones and will only be available for presale in Hong Kong, Macau, Beijing and Tianjin.
Because MRT is still a tech site for real people, one thing I have to be clear about is that with technology so fleeting, like cellphones, it’s not very practical to spend so much on. Then again, one can argue that a lot of people spend ridiculous amounts of money on other things they find interesting, regardless of what others feel about it. That’s why people of every walk of life have many choices to pick from. Price and functionality aside, what do you think of the design?
P.S. There is still no word on if the included bluetooth headset will be bearing diamonds or not, but I hope it does because that would just complete the package.
