Carrera is an Austrian sports eyewear brand by Wilhelm Anger, who in 1956 decided to name his company after the longest, fastest and most dangerous race in the world, the Carrera Panamericana. Sporty, eye-catching flare became to characterise the brand and its success representing Austrian style grew immensely. In 1987 the brand was the only official sponsor of America’s Cup in Perth, Australia and the brand became increasingly involved in the world of sport. Famous for its high-performance products, Carrera have continued their on-the-road spirit, and dynamic designs that stem from their inspiration from Panamericana.
