    Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    Nokia's luxury brand, Vertu has launched a new phone, the Vertu Ascent Ferrari 1947 Limited Edition, to commemorate Ferrari's 60th Anniversary. Vertu says that it worked closely with Ferrari's design team to develop this exclusive limited edition phone.

    The Vertu Ascent Ferrari 1947 Limited Edition is inspired by the dynamic and stylish Ferrari cars. Echoing this latest edition to the Ferrari GT stable, the phone is encased in red and black Ferrari leather with black lacquer stripes running at the sides.

    The bezel nose on the front of the phone features the famed Ferrari Prancing Horse, while on the rear back plate there is a scaled down iconic Ferrari brake pedal, crafted from high-graded aluminum, like that used in Ferrari cars. To underline the exclusivity of the Vertu Ascent Ferrari 1947 Limited Edition each piece is individually serialised 1 to 1947 - paying homage to the very year when the first car to bear the Prancing Horse marque was built by the founder, Enzo Ferrari.

    The Vertu Ascent Ferrari 1947 Limited Edition is handcrafted in the United Kingdom. It also comes with a stylish case, designed by Ferrari's design team. Made from matching Ferrari red & black leather, the case perfectly complements the phone.

    "I feel there are many reasons why it's right for Vertu and Ferrari to be working together," says Vertu President Alberto Torres. "Furthermore we also share many customers in common. Over the past few months it has been a pleasure to meet many Ferrari owners and, during our conversation, to find they already own a Vertu. But most importantly, Ferrari and Vertu share a common commitment to the highest standards of design, engineering and performance."

    The Ascent Ferrari 1947 Limited Edition is available in stores from July.

    It will complement the car excellently!

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    $6k + for a cell phone????? If it were completely unique maybe... but it's the Motorsport phone with snazzy Ferrari packaging. They slapped on a mini brake pedal, some leather, and a prancing horse... oh and some black laquer. hahaha

    It does look pretty good though. Who's going to buy one?

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    I will!
    at least it looks better than my other yellow/Black ascent phone. I bought it just because it matshs the color my 360.

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    The Vertu Ascent has internals from 5 years ago...

    Why do they keep recycling it with a new exterior instead of changing what really matters.

    Constellation is cheaper and superior in performance.

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    1 year is an eternity in cell phone technology... 6K for something you should throw away every other year?

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    It's not about the technology, it's a about lifestyle.
    How old is the technology in your watch and how often do you actually use advanced features on your chronograph?

    IMHO there is no comparaison. You can't pass up on syncing contacts, reception is always getting better, let alone 3G. Also new features like selective voicemail will be so natural that all phones should have it very soon.

    But if you only use this phone to make a call once and a while and flash it in restaurants, well that's a kind a lifestyle I guess.

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    buy an apple i-phone or equivalent, much better tech, slap some red paint on it if you must and then send 5 grand to famine relief.

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    I would send money to charity if it got to the right people, unfortunately it does not.

    I prefer to give to the people in need directly.

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    if you are pimpin right with your Ferrari you shouldn't have the time to fiddle around with you phone enough to learn or need all that 3g and quirks they put in todays phones just to have something others dont.
    Anyway the only thing you should use with this phone is to call your assistant and order charter flights, book hotels and use the consierge service and live to the max

    Vertu concierge is amazing. Not as good as Amex Centurion, but quite good.

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    How much is it a year?

    First year is free. After that it's 80USD a month

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    I'm a huge phone buff, but I never got the concept behind the elitist vertu stuff...If someone could explain it to me, please. Aesthetically, I find them banal, but then again I've never seen one in person.

    As for the technology, it is generations old, absolutely archaic.

    The build quality is quite nice. I have a Constellation model myself, it feels like a precisely engineered piece of solid metal, rather than plasticky and tossable like a regular phone.

    Some of us just use the cell phone for calling/txting/light googling, for the rest, there is concierge .

    I don't need my phone to do much more.

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    Alberto you goofed.

    It looks like a inexpensive chinese electric razor.

    Stylish its not.

    Try again.

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    I've just found it there is a second model! Only 60 units will be made! it comes in light tan with a Dayatona seats inspired leather case. Trust me guys, you dont want to know the price tag of this one!!!

    That's on the cheap side compared to centurion and quintessentially...

    Re: Vertu Launches Ferrari Branded Handset

    The concierge is run by TenUK
