The Motorsport limited edition from Vertu takes inspiration from - you guessed it - cars. The special design of the body is based on this concept and it is made of a special alloy along with leather and carbon fiber. This makes the body super strong and in fact the liquidmetal body resists even the strongest attempt to break it. Though why one would try to break such an expensive handset is beyond me. However the scratch proof sapphire crystal screen definitely makes sense. Just like in a racing car, the handset is also mounted on a shock proof suspension to protect it from no matter what. Durability is certainly one of the strongest points of the Motorsport edition.
The Limited edition was created to "celebrate Vertu's participation in the Porsch eMichelin Supercup and Porsche Infineon Carrera Cup Asia." The handset will be available only in black color. It will have dimensions of 108 x 44 x 22 mm and a weight of 170 grams. The keys are made of stainless steel with jewelled bearings continuing with the tough theme of the handset. The handset will also enjoy Bluetooth connectivity and Modem support. Vertu engineers claim that the handset is so durable that it even survived testing by driving it over with a racing car.
