It seems like there’s no stopping to the demand of all sorts of iPhone 5 customizations, as increasingly more people are looking forward to acquiring such gadgetry. The need to personalize your own items is quite expressed within these individuals and many brands have to come up with new designs and projects, some of them extremely precious and expensive.

Back in 2011, Elijah Giacometti, the owner of the famous jewelcrafting brand Perla Penna, has come up with the CAVIAR iPhones, an exquisite line of limited edition exotic phones. They were fitted with exotic leathers, rare materials and 18-carat gold.

As time went by, the series has undergone a few modifications, in order to be customized to the evolution of the iPhone. The same designer has recently unveiled the “most brutal male phone ever”, the CAVIAR iPhone 5 Titano Diabolo. This one is, just like the previous, a limited edition of just 99 phones, each of them priced at a whopping $4,260.

They are crafted from carbon fiber and titanium, having been manufactured in collaboration with specialists from Automobili Lamborghini SpA.

The most staggering features of this species of phone, model ‘2006,811, are the gold- or ruthenium-covered plaque alongside the logo. Ruthenium is a specifically dark metal, almost black, part of the platinum group of metals that won’t ever dissolve in acidic substances. Not even aqua regia will be able to do any damage.

The package that comes with the phone is a branded leather case alongside the possibility of engraving a unique phone number. As for the rear side of the phone, it was crafted from tempered MPE titanium grade DIN 3.7145, automobile carbon Battaglin and laser engraving TiTouch – Cella.
