Steve McQueen is eternally cool. And that’s what makes TAG Heuer Meridist’s newest phone so hip. Answer the call for cool with the Gulf Meridist, a cell phone that’s inspired by Steve McQueen’s character Michael Delaney in the 1971 film “Le Mans.”

Adorned with Gulf Oil’s signature light blue and orange color scheme, this luxury mobile phone is covered with a black body finish and its PVD surface treatment ensures it won’t get scratched up.

But the cool doesn’t stop there. Its rear battery cover is black rubber that sports two orange and blue stripes. Just above the cell phone’s rear camera shutter, you’ll find the Gulf logo above the rear camera, and the TAG Heuer logo appears just below the front crystal sapphire screen.

If you’re thinking to yourself: “I am pretty cool, but I could be cooler,” you’ll want to get your hands on the Gulf Meridist mobile phone soon, as there are only 400 of these limited edition models being made.
