most-expensive-oakley-sunglasses-oakley-elite-c-six-line.jpg

The most expensive Oakley Sunglasses ($4000) are these sick Oakley Elite C SIX's and may be worth the equivalent of a 2-week long vacation to some. Built using some of the world's most advanced structural technologies, the Oakley Elite C SIX utilizes pure carbon fiber which is thinner than human hair yet stronger than high tensile steel. The whole process actually reportedly starts at a U.K. factory where high-end Formula 1 race-car components are made. This breakthrough innovation from the aerospace industry is blended with resins and assembled into structures more than 40 layers thick. Five-axis Computer Numeric Control machining carves and shapes the composite with a process that requires more than 24 hours of continuous tooling. Oakley plans to only make 250 Elite C Six carbon glasses so get on it if you're serious! If you like the shades but don't want to cough up all that doe, you can buy the regular model Aluminum/Grey Polarized for $1500. The Carbon Fiber/Tungsten Iridium Polarized will run you $4000. Ouch!
