Vertu has launched a new phone, the Vertu Ascent Ferrari 1947 Limited Edition, to commemorate Ferrariâ€™s 60th Anniversary. Using hand-polished titanium for the chassis the special limited edition draws inspiration from Ferrari GT cars that embody strength, durability and high-level performance. Vertu worked closely with Ferrariâ€™s design team to develop this exclusive limited edition â€˜phones.
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. Carefully crafted with the same precision and attention to detail given when assembling a Ferrari, the Vertu Ascent Ferrari 1947 Limited Edition celebrates the delicate balance between form and function.
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.
Absolutely lovely. It isn’t even a smartphone, but I still want it!
Now make a Vertu with an ///M logo on it and I might just go bananas.
