The handset sports a five-inch high-definition display, 20 megapixel camera and can connect to mobile networks around the world.

The 88 Tauri handset is offered in black, gold and steel silver and is finished with high-grade leather available in five colors. Each phone is assembled by hand and receives a unique device number.

"Luxury is not a need, but it is a way to stand out," said Bob Hatefi, chief executive at Lamborghini Mobile, a company formed by the son of famed auto designer Ferruccio Lamborghini.

Tonino Lamborghini Mobile announced the global launch of the stainless steel-and-leather handset ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
