Carrera Sunglasses In Rush Movie

Posted 1923 days ago from

PLOT:  The movie serves as a riveting biography of Austrian Formula 1 champion driver Niki Lauda played by actor Daniel Brühl and the 1976 crash that almost claimed his life.  Mere weeks after the accident, Brühl got behind the wheel to challenge his British rival, James Hunt played by actor Chris Hemsworth.  The movie portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest race car rivals the world has ever witnessed.  Staying true to the times, the legendary eyewear brand Carrera is prominently featured in the movie.


  Niki Lauda’s character (played by Daniel Brühl) wears a pair of Carrera 80 teardrop shaped metal aviator sunglasses, a re-issue of a best-selling Carrera style of that time
