Luxury Cell Phones: If you're an F-1 enthusiast, you're going to love Gresso's latest phone products dubbed as the Grand Monaco Collection. Luxury electronics company Gresso revealed details of this new collection, which is inspired by Formula 1 racing and renders the main characteristics of a supercar.

The best material ever for a racing car body "carbon" is used. Carbon fiber is used on the front and back case panels, while the absolutely flat keypad is made out of 100-micron thick steel, covered with titanium Black PVD, which protects the surface from scratches. The keys are made of surgical steel and the numbers and letters are laser cut.

For the back cover, Gresso used a Magnetic Smart lock, while a hand-polished 42 K sapphire crystal protects the display. The phones in the series have 2MP camera, tri-band GSM connectivity with GPRS/EDGE, as well as Bluetooth and Java support. MicroSD cards up to 2GB support internal memory. Powering these Grand Monaco phones are Li-ion batteries, 1100mAh each, providing up to five and half hours of talk time and 300 hours of standby.

The case is made of titanium superalloy and covered with high-tech ceramic in 750C degrees temperature, a coating that prevents tarnishing and color fading. The limited edition Gresso Grand Monaco Carbon is also available in alternate designs like high-tech black or metallic ceramic combined with carbon. The mobile phones can be found at all Gresso official dealers and are priced at $2,100 (€1,475).
