What does a $6,000 phone look like? The Lamborghini 88 Tauri, of course (hands-on)

The lap of luxury evokes actual laps in the Torino Lamborghini 88 Tauri, an ultrapremium Android smartphone from the storied car-maker.
Lambo isn't new to the smartphone game, and this latest effort outpaces previous models in both size and specs. What the 88 Tauri's $6,000 or £4,000 price tag (that's $AU11,255) gets you is mostly a name and a designer decal (plus a really cool ostentatious case that opens like a Lamborghini hood, and a set of expensive headphones).
However, it is also outfitted with its share of premium materials, like nine different colors of calfskin leather over three treatments of stainless steel. These include black, silver, and genuine gold-plate.

The glass covering the phone's 5-inch 1080p display is also special. Lamborghini says that the company customized it to be shatterproof and scratch-proof; in fact, it's the same glass used in Lamborghini's own cars.

Hardware specs

For a phone so pricey, the specs are good, even quite good, but not cutting-edge. That's just not what you pay for in a stupid-expensive smartphone.
It runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat, not the latest 5.0 Lollipop, and its cameras shoot 20-megapixel photos from the rear and 8-megapixel snaps from the front. The 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor is proven to be very fast (though we're now on Snapdragon 810), and the 3GB RAM is a healthy dose.
