Moto G Ferrari edition masters the oxymoron

Motorola has introduced the Moto G Ferrari Edition, completely turning the concept behind the Moto G on its head. When the Moto G was launched, it was meant to be a surprising show of force on the part of Motorola’s teams of innovators. It was meant to be a device that, regardless of its extra-low price off-contract, would be a high-performer all around the world.

You see the Moto G here with a Ferrari logo on it. You understand that Ferrari is a brand that wishes to invade every market for consumables, but you know this never comes with a small price tag.

Instead of the Moto G coming in at a price less than $200 USD, this Ferrari edition will cost consumers $390 USD. While that’s an off-contract price, it’s still surprisingly high for a device that was meant to be extra-affordable.

The extra couple hundred dollars will give the user the brand name, logos up front and around the back, where the back cover will also be presented with a kevlar weave design. This device will also have "exclusive" wallpapers which will almost immediately be shared to the web through portals like XDA developers.

Inside, the Moto G Ferrari Edition is exactly the same as the standard edition Moto G, including the same 4.5-inch display with 720p resolution and 16GB of internal storage alongside a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor.
