Vertu partnered with luxury carmaker Bentley to launch the Bentley Signature Touch smartphone last year, and now the handset vendor is following up with the Signature for Bentley, a £14,500 feature phone crafted with exotic materials. The phone is inspired by Bentley's Mulsanne Speed, sharing a few commonalities such as the carbon fibre weave, which matches the pattern on the car's dashboard. The Beluga Black calf leather featured on the back of the device is also sourced from the same tannery used by Bentley for the Mulsanne. The front of the device features a Flying B logo made out of titanium.
Vertu is offering an extensive range of customization options for customers, including custom leather variants, precious gems and colors. The handset will be available initially at Goodwood Festival of Speed and Concourse d'Elegance, making its formal debut on September 18. It is available for pre-order starting today for those looking for a device that matches the design of their Mulsanne Speed (wonder if Rooney's already got his order in).
