If you want a smartphone to match your lux lifestyle, you can't settle for the same old iPhone as everyone else. You need something unique to show off just how special you are. That's where the 88 Tauri from Torino Lamborghini comes in. Only 1,947 of these Android smartphones will be made, so you can be sure you won't run into someone on the street with the same device. And, yes, it does cost $6,000, but it ups your masculinity quotient by at least 50 percent thanks to all of those leather finishes and angular slabs of steel. It also takes "the most luxurious selfie in the world," whatever that means.
Lamboghini has announced its first plug-in hybrid showpiece, and it's quite beautiful. The Asterion LPI 910-4 packs in a 5.2-liter V10 with 610 horsepower, and its trio of electric motors beef up that latter figure another 300 (hence the 910 moniker). Those numbers puts the hypercar in the same neighborhood as McLaren's P1 and the LaFerrari hybrid. In terms of speed, the blue machine can hit 0 to 60 MPH (0 to 100 km/h) in three seconds and tops out at just under 200 MPH (320 km/h). What's more, the Asterion can reach 78 MPH (125 km/h) using only electric power, traveling around 31 miles (50km) without firing up the main engine. As this is more of a proof of concept than anything else, there's no word on pricing and availability, or whether more than one will even be made. However, feel free to ogle the leather-wrapped cockpit after the break.
