Caviar is back again with its usual extravagant touch. This time it has applied its wares to the new iPhone 13 Pro series and dubbed its custom creation the Tyrannophone. It gets its name from the image of T-Rex embossed on its back which also includes a bit of a real T-Rex tooth.

Caviar has been making customized luxury variants of popular consumer electronics and other products for a number of years now. These exclusive devices come with lavish designs and the use of exotic materials. None, however, is more exotic than its latest creation the Tyrannophone, which is based on Apple’s already pricey iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max models.

The new design gets its name from the Tyrannosaurus Rex that adorns the rear of the iPhone. The all-new back casing is made from a lightweight composite foundation that has been embossed and incorporates 24 K gold-plated alloy inserts designed to symbolize lightning. The T-Rex head is a volumetric sculpture made from titanium coated in a black PVD finish. Its eye is made from amber. Its crowning touch is a sculptured tooth that is actually includes a fragment of a real T-Rex tooth dated at around 80 million years old.

Caviar says that it has only made seven pieces of the new Tyrannophone. As you might expect, the price is as monstrous as the menacing T-Rex on the back of it and comes in at US$8,610 for the iPhone 13 Pro-based version or US$9,150, both in the 1 TB storage option.

Buy a 128 GB iPhone 12 Pro in Pacific Blue renewed and unlocked from Amazon for US$933.
