Vertu 1947 Ferrari phone

Luxury phone maker Vertu has unveiled three Ferrari-themed mobile phones that will expand its Ascent Ti Ferrari collection; the Nero, Rosso and Giallo. The series features high-grade titanium construction, with stitched leather taken from Ferrari's tanneries. The Italian car manufacturer's signature Cavallino prancing horse emblem adorns the front and back of the phone. Other vehicle-inspired design elements include a Ferrari-hood style battery door cover and louvers placed on each side.

The Nero phone features all black design with a red sapphire pillow. The titanium is covered in a scratch-proof Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) layer. The Rosso and Giallo devices are matched to Ferrari's red and yellow colors, respectively. The PVD coating only covers the battery covers and keys. Users can even set the phone to play engine sounds from the F430 and 612 Scaglietti for ringtones. The Nero, Rosso, and Giallo are available now, with pricing available from dealers.
