$17,000 Bentley Smartphone

By YouCar

The ‘Vertu for Bentley’ smartphone is swathed in quilted calf leather, in the classic Bentley shade of Newmarket Tan, and stitched with a diamond pattern. The supple leather is encased in durable, yet lightweight, titanium, which features tactile diamond knurling. This detailing on the side rails is complemented by an engine-turned pattern on the handset’s titanium back plate, which opens to reveal the engraved signature of the craftsman who meticulously constructed the phone, from start to finish, at Vertu’s headquarters in Church Crookham, England. The traditional ceramic pillow, synonymous with established Vertu handsets such as the Signature and Signature Touch collections, has been subtly remodelled to feature a sleeker pillow trim, to reflect Bentley’s elegant and sophisticated style. Each and every ‘Vertu for Bentley’ phone celebrates the new partnership by sporting a discrete, metal Bentley ‘B’ wings motif on the face of the handset. The complimentary slip case which accompanies every ‘Vertu for Bentley’ handset, also depicts the Bentley logo, embossed on the Newmarket Tan calf leather. This inaugural ‘Vertu for Bentley’ model is planned to be followed by a further four distinctive, luxury smartphones, each of which will encompass authentic and iconic Bentley design elements and exclusive lifestyle services. Limited to just 2,000 pieces, the new ‘Vertu for Bentley’ smartphone is available in selected Vertu Boutiques worldwide from October, and priced from £10,700 / €12,500 / $17,100. ‘VERTU FOR BENTLEY’ SPECIFICATION Length: 145mm, Width: 69mm, Depth: 10.65mmWeight: 192g SERVICES Vertu LIFE.  Vertu CERTAINTY.
