The cheaper way to say you own a Lamborghini is to buy the smartphone – but are its tech specs up to speed with competitors?
Lamborghini bosses are hoping their luxury sports car reputation will cruise into the mobile phone market after they launched a gold-plated smartphone costing £2,500.
And although the Tonino Lamborghini Antares may not share the same spec of a top range sports car, it certainly has some seriously flashy bodywork to boast about.
The impressive handset has all the stylish curves and angles of the car which carries the same name, but is made by lifestyle company Tonino Lamborghini – not Automobili Lamborghini.
It uses Google’s Android operating system and is protected by what the company calls “impregnable Gorilla Glass” and is furnished with a leather back in a colour of your choice.
The luxury handset comes with a quad-core 1.5Ghz processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory, as well as a full HD 1080p screen and a 13-megapixel rear and 5-megixel front-facing camera – specs that could be found in handsets costing less than a tenth of the price.
Russia and China will be first to get their hands on the android when it is released there in December, according to Metro.
It will then arrive in Italy, and make it to Britain and the US by next spring.
Tonino CEO Gianluca Filippi said: “Antares is designed to match instantly recognisable Italian flair with great performance and stunning materials.”
It was developed after BlackBerry launched a Z10 smartphone recrafted by Porsche and Vertu started selling a TI Ferrari phone.
