Thus, Porsche Design has come up with a piece that would normally be considered just one more ordinary item but since it wears the German car maker's signature, it is suddenly turned into a luxury petrolhead work of art. Gentlemansgadgets.com brings to the Porsche fans' attention (and not only) the new P’8478 and 8480 pilot spectacles, two exquisite pairs of sunglasses to be worn in sunny days while driving your Porsche vehicle.
As a matter of fact, the P'8478 is based upon an already fashion approved model. To be more specific, it’s the reissued version of the well-known “Exklusivbrille” (exclusive glasses) from 1978. It is made of the most advanced materials available nowadays and the distinctive feature consists in its interchangeable lenses.
As for the P’8480, it was designed with the innovative folding mechanism which already made it famous in 1980. In addition, the amazing mechanism allows it to shrink to a mere 6×6 cm.
More importantly, both models are made of lightweight titanium and AR coated polycarbonate lenses for the reflection free view.
Obviously, the two pairs of spectacles are undoubtedly unique Porsche masterpieces and because of this specific luxury status, they are priced accordingly. Thus, you can have any of the above-described pairs of sunglasses for the price of $490. Certainly, if you have a Porsche vehicle in your garage, that shouldn't be a problem. On the contrary, it will just complete your collection of Porsche items.
Speaking about other Porsche items, the marriage between Adidas and Porsche Design recently gave birth to the 2009 Spring/Summer sports collection that we spoke about here.
