Oil companies might be getting a tough rap these days with the recent oil spill disaster in the gulf and a global economy that's moving towards fossil fuel alternatives. But in the spirit of true innovation, Gulf Oil has exploited this chaos by teaming up with TAG Heuer in order to create the stylish Gulf Meridist cell phone.

Featuring Gulf Oil's iconic baby blue and orange color scheme, the Gulf Meridist draws its inspiration from the character Michael Delaney in the 1971 film 'Le Mans.' On top of its pop culture roots, however, the phone also sports a sleek black exterior that has been coated with a PVD surface treatment in order to make sure it stays permanently scratch-free.

For those who can't wait to get their hands on this classy cell phone, act fast because the Gulf Merdist's production is unfortunately to be limited to just 400 pieces. Stats for Racecar Cell Phones Trending: Older & Chilly
