Don’t think the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is ostentatious enough? You’ll want to book a trip to London, then. In support of a Design Museum charity auction on April 28th, Apple’s Jony Ive and his team have built a unique version of the larger iPad that’s nothing like the models you can find in stores. The audacious-looking yellow aluminum shell is just the start of it. The one-off tablet also comes with accessories that you might wish Apple made for everyone, including a Smart Cover in French leather and an orange Pencil case in Italian leather.

We can’t say the combo is an absolute stunner (the red Mac Pro from 2013 was arguably better-looking), but you’ll definitely get noticed if you take this out at the local coffee shop. Just be ready to pay a very, very large premium for the sake of individuality. Auction partner Phillips anticipates that this custom iPad Pro will sell for between £10,000 to £15,000 (around $14,200 to $21,300), which makes even a decked-out MacBook Pro seem like a bargain.
