You remember Vertu, don't you? The upmarket Nokia division makes a range of luxury mobile phones for the jet-setting crowd, and back a few years ago, they were cranking out what seemed like an endless stream of special editions connected in some manner or another to cars. Whether it was the automotive-grade construction or specific branding, the Ascent model in particular had an automotive theme to it.

It's been a while since we've seen any new models coming from Vertu with that car enthusiast bent, but now the brand is back with another Ferrari-branded mobile device. The latest Vertu Ascent Ti Ferrari edition is decidedly lower-key than its predecessors – in color scheme, anyway – with a matte black PVD-coated titanium construction and subtle hints of red on the keypad, the hand-stitched leather trim on the back and the crackle-finish side grip styled after Maranello's trademark cam covers.

The new Ferrari phone is built atop the refreshed model released last year, and packs a 2-inch QVGA sapphire crystal display and quad-band 3G connectivity for use around the world. And of course the requisite Prancing Horse logos. Only 2,011 examples will be offered to those who find the Motorola or Acer Ferrari phone too plebeian, with a price tag sure to stretch well into four figures.
