The British cell phone manufacturer Vertu has introduced another member to its portfolio of ultra expensive limited edition devices. The company has once again partnered with Ferrari to release the Ascent Ferrari GT handset.

Inspired by the equally high-end Italian cars, the Vertu Ascent Ferrari GT has a body made made forged titanium with a matte black PVD finish. The black and red hand-sewn leather ornaments use the exact same leather as the Ferrari interiors. The list of design highlights continues with a ceramic battery cover and a side inspired by the famous Ferrari engine grill.

The rest of the features of the Vertu Ascent Ferrari GT are more down-to-earth and include a 2" QVGA screen and a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with a LED flash. There's also 3G with HSDPA and A-GPS with navigation software and preoloaded maps. The Vertu trademark high-performance 11x15mm stereo speakers are also present.

Vertu will only create two thousand and eleven phones Ascent Ferrari GT units, but has so far not revealed their prices.
