Leading British performance eyewear brand, SunGod, has launched its latest eyewear collaboration with McLaren F1 Team to celebrate McLaren Racing’s historic Triple Crown of Motorsport victories, as they mark their 60th year.
Launching ahead of the jewel in the crown of the F1 calendar, the Monaco Grand Prix, the design of the Limited Edition SunGod Monaco Triple Crown Zephyrs™ pays tribute to this momentous sporting achievement.
The sunglasses are built with SunGod’s industry-leading gold 8KO® lenses and Brushed Gold icons, presented in an Infinite™ 100% Recycled Matte Black frame and finished with a Triple Crown engraving. An iconic design for an iconic McLaren victory.
The Triple Crown is considered by fans to be the pinnacle of achievement in the motorsports world, requiring victory in three of the most prestigious races in the sport: the Monaco Grand Prix, the Indy 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
McLaren’s Triple Crown consists of victories at the Indy 500 in 1974 with Johnny Rutherford, the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix with Alain Prost, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995 with JJ Lehto, Yannick Dalmas and Masanori Sekiya.
Like the Triple Crown, which unites the three most popular races in motortsport, the SunGod Zephyrs™ have become a fan favourite since launching in 2022. As SunGod’s ‘frame of the moment’, the detailed engraving and sharp edges represent the classic style that mirrors the glamour of Monte Carlo.
Available via the SunGod website from 19th May 2023, ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix on 28th May – the model is perfect for any fans who want to stand out from the crowd. SunGod’s next day delivery means fans can order them on launch day and have them arrive with time to spare.
Ali Watkiss, co-Founder and CEO of SunGod: “In McLaren’s 60th year we are incredibly proud to celebrate McLaren’s unique achievement of securing the Triple Crown – the Zephyrs™ capture the timelessness of this feat. McLaren’s continued dedication to excellence is matched in our desire to create products which excel expectations – and this latest addition to the collection showcases our relentless drive towards that goal.”
Lindsey Eckhouse, Director, Licensing & Digital Products, McLaren Racing, said: ““We are proud to have achieved motorsport’s prestigious Triple Crown as a constructor. In our 60th year, we are shining a light on the legacy of the team that Bruce McLaren built and role this plays in fuelling our ambitions for the future of the team, and this collaboration is a great way to celebrate with our fans.”
