info

The name Carrera was adopted by the Austrian designer Wilhelm Anger

in 1956 - he was inspired by the Carrera Pan-American Race in which

cars raced from Mexico to near Texas - and so Carrera was a sports

eyewear brand. An Austrian expedition to Africa in 1957 went equipped

with sports spectacles and sunglasses by Anger and the Austrian ski

team wore their goggles. After Anger invented the frame material Optyl

in 1964, the company boomed and Carrera International was established

in 1977 in Traun, Austria, marketing high specification sports sunglasses

with a fashion edge to the world. This pair dates from the 1980s, it is a

combination style frame, mixing plastic (optyl) with metal in an aviator

shape. It features Carrera's Vario temples, offering adjustable lengths

from 135mm up to 150mm by simply revolving of the chrome barrels on

each arm. In unused condition and retaining the original dummy lenses

with Carrera logo. NB: you need a good sized PD to have your lenses fitted

into this frame, we reckon at least 65mm, otherwise you might struggle to

find a blank large enough for these 60mm rims.
