NEW YORK – Ok, cell phone cases are not the type of thing we typically cover here at In-Car TechTell. But when the press release for this muscle car-inspired case for the iPhone 5 crossed my desk, I just had to post it for all of our automotive-loving readers.
The Gasket V8 from the mobile accessory company id America, is inspired by the shape of a head gasket on a performance V8 engine. It is constructed with aircraft aluminum and molded to provide a form fitting structure for the iPhone 5. The Gasket V8 case will be available March 20th at idAmericaNY.com for $29.95.
The interlaced design coupled with smooth, rounded edges offer additional grip making it easy to carry. The slim, sleek design provides easy access to all ports, buttons and switches on the iPhone.
The Gasket V8 has an attractive brushed, lightweight aluminum skeleton with interior suede that acts as a shock absorber protecting your iPhone5 from bumps and scratches. Available in Titanium Gray, Vintage Gold, Aluminum Silver, Rally Blue, Brilliant Red, and Forest Green, Gasket V8 is the must have accessory for any automotive enthusiast. Bundled to provide maximum protection, id America includes a front clear protective film, a microfiber cleaning cloth and squeegee for proper film application with every Gasket V8.
“The Gasket V8 offers optimal protection and style for racing and automotive enthusiasts,” says Abraham Jackal, marketing manager of id America. “These additions to the id America family will undoubtedly bring out the race car driver in you in a subtle and fashionable way.”
