For the Lamborghini owner on your Christmas gift list (we all have one, don't we?), here's yet another branded item to make sure everyone knows who left the LP640 with the valet.

Our friends at Luxist.com turned us on to the new limited edition Nokia 8800 Sirocco phone that features a stainless steel casing that is etched with Lamborghini's charging bull logo as well as the words "Automobili Lamborghini". The Lamborghini branding doesn't end there, either. The phone also comes with Lambo wallpaper graphics, engine-inspired ringtones and a short video documentary about their cars. Most notably, according to the press release, "ball bearings crafted by Lamborghini have been used, allowing a sophisticated slide mechanism". One can only ponder the cost of that clearly relevant engineering feat.

Nokia will only produce 500 of these exclusive phones, which will be sold through selected Lamborghini dealerships.

      Ballin hard, but how well does the phone itself work? For three stacks it should do it all...time will tell.

      #1 You might want to check the specs on this phone, it's far from an overpriced, under featured cell phone

      It hit the streets with a retail in it's base configuration at about 1200 US at discount it's still 750 to 950.

      Now with the Lamborghini addition with only 500 made you can bet it won't be cheap.

      Stainless steel? Shouldn't this be a DeLorean phone?

      "Are you telling me you built a cell phone...out of a DeLorean?" "The way I see it, if you're going to make an overpriced, underfeatured cell phone, why not do it with some style?"
