Porsche Released Gold Sunglasses

Just like every summer beginning, most people run to shops to buy the must have accessory of the season:  sunglasses. For those with big incomes, Porsche Design Group released an exclusive limited edition pair of sunglasses on the market, the Porsche P’8499, reported.

For years now, sunglasses have been more than just a necessity for eye protection against the sun. They became not only as indispensable as the wallet in men’s case or the lipstick in women’s, but they also reflect your social and financial level.

The new Porsche P’8499 sunglasses combine gold and platinum equally. The front of the text and the bar are made of 18 carat gold and Pt 900 platinum. The polycarbonate lenses are mirrored with 24 carat gold to offer optimal protection for the eyes. The sunglasses are also available as a corrective frame.

We said at the beginning that the P’8499 sunglasses are available in a limited edition. As you probably might have guessed by now, they are produced in Porsche’s trademark number of 911 at the price of 4,800 euros ($6,670). We wouldn’t even think of a lower price for this glittery eyewear product.

If the price is a bit out of your league, you can try and purchase the cheaper P’8447 similar product, at only 1,955 euros ($2,415). So the lenses aren’t gold mirrored, but the frame is made of white 18-carat gold.

However, a potential customer for one of the 911 pieces of P’8499 crosses our minds: one rich Russian owner of a solid gold covered Porsche 911 Cabriolet. If the guy had the money for all the 18 kg of gold that were used to decorate his car, then 4,800 euros for the sunglasses to match it shouldn’t be a problem.
