About Vladimir Putin’s popularity in Russia needless to speak. And now, Vladimir Putin super fans, at least some wealthy can show their love for their dear leader if buying special version of the iPhone with his face on it. Italian luxury brand Caviar/Perla Penna built the so-called “Supremo Putin” phone, which is encrusted in 18-karat-gold. Putin’s face is engraved in the gold plating of the iPhone 5s, along with the Russian coat of arms and the first lines from the national anthem.
“It’s time to feel genuine pride and express your position clearly, without further ado,” the company says, in an appeal to patriotic Russians.
“President Vladimir Putin has become a symbol of the new generation, a strong-willed and decisive leader.”
It retails for $4,300 and is part of a line of extravagant phones marketed toward “people of the highest circle,” as the company puts it. Bad thing, Putin’s most passionate fans – average Russians can’t afford buying one of these.
