The name Lamborghini is synonymous with lavish cars with outlandish prices, but that name could soon be attached to a new product: smartphones. The new 88 Tauri from Tonino Lamborghini, son of the car manufacturer’s founder, costs a staggering $6,000.
What makes the 88 Tauri worth $6,000? Exclusivity. Less than 2,000 of these phones will be made, making them difficult to own. Of course, the number of people willing to pay $6,000 for a smartphone is equally limited, but that plays a role in driving up the cost.
The phones are made from handcrafted stainless steel and leather which contributes to the high price. In addition, they feature the latest Gorilla Glass for the display.
The phone runs on the Android platform, and features a 5-inch display, a 20 MP rear-facing camera, an 8 MP rear-facing camera, 1080p resolution, and a whopping 3,400 mAh battery.
The phone is expected to reach the market by the end of the month, and there will likely be people waiting to buy it. These high-dollar phones usually become outdated quickly. While you’re showing off your amazing new phone, something new hits the market that is faster and even more efficient. It’s the prestige that makes these phones valuable, more so than anything else. And for that reason, this $6,000 smartphone might be a success.
