Lamborghini phone will cost you $6,000
The 88 Tauri has been announced by luxury brand Tonino Lamborghini at CES for those that have expensive taste. This is the company's second Android device, and like the first it commands a premium pricetag. Expect to shell out $6,000 for this piece of kit.
In terms of specs, the 88 Tauri is no slouch. You'll find a quad-core 2.3 GHz processor and 3 GB of RAM with 64 GB of local storage wrapped up in a stainless steel frame. The front offers a 5-inch 1080p display and 8 megapixel front-facing camera, while the rear has a 20 megapixel camera and a fancy leather coat. You'll even get some special edition premium headphones to go with it.
It's worth noting that the folks behind the 88 Tauri are purely a luxury brand whose founder happens to be the son of Ferruccio Lamborghini, of automotive fame. Regardless, on the phone you'll find the familiar raging bull crest and posh style that characterize both companies.
You can grab the 88 Tauri right now if you're burdened with way too much money, or read up on it more in the press release below.

"hey what kind of phone is that " The kind you can't afford. Posted via AC app by way of my right thumb.
People with a lot of money, love to own rare and expensive products.
I see a lot of people wondering who would spend X amount on item Y. Now, I need someone to tell me if any piece of Clothing can have a real value of 10-50k or art(ifact) millions of dollars. " Product is worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it." It's that simple. via AC App on VZW Moto X DE/N7

Should I have done that in the store toilet? That would be another 20 trips to the ATM. Ah well. Posted via the Android Central App
Thanks for the post. LOL a smartphone cost $6000......LOL. then why this spec is low. why not 128GB?? .....why not 20MP camera?? where is the Sapphire glass on it as screen !! why they didn't use SnapDragon 810 series 64bit processor with 4 GB RAM?
If the price is called $6000 then the product should be price worthy.
Thanks in Advance
It has a screen, calls, messaging and banking apps. Plus they will have their own tech support. But I agree it falls between what Vertu offer and stock flagships, which will be perfect for their buyers. There will be niche after market diamond (or Svarowski!) and gold encrusted versions on offer. Come to the top London stores by early summer.
