The word “Lamborghini” likely makes you think of very expensive cars, but there’s another product line with the same name that will set your wallet back, too.
The 88 Tauri is the latest smartphone from the Tonino Lamborghini Group and it comes with an extravagant price tag of $6,000, according to Russian tech website hi-tech.mail.ru.
Tonino Lamborghini manufactures luxury products, like watches and accessories. The company’s name comes from it founder, who’s the son of the late Ferruccio Lamborghini, the man behind Lamborghini cars.
Only 1,947 88 Tauri devices will be made — the number was chosen for the founder’s birth year.
The technical specs aren’t groundbreaking — it’s in line with already available smartphone options — but this phone is clearly more about showing off wealth than any sort of advanced functionality.
There’s a 5-inch HD display and a 2.3GHz quad-core processor. It also comes with 64GB of storage and 3GB of RAM. The 20-megapixel camera is a bit more impressive, along with the a front-facing 8-megapixel camera.
The phone is available in real leather (in black, blue, red, orange or brown) and steel (in black, gold or silver).
Overall, the exorbitant sticker price is pretty much all about that Lamborghini name, plus the high-quality build materials and exclusivity of the product. There’s nothing too forward-thinking about this phone, but we doubt the target consumer is overly concerned about that… see more
