Inspired by the ubiquitous ball shift knob found in countless vintage cars, our keychain is a 30mm diameter miniature of this iconic cockpit accessory.
Hand crafted in Japan from high quality cellulose acetate –the same material that high end optical frames are made of– the ball is made by layering the acetate sheets, then machining them to shape, and polishing to a high gloss finish. There is a subtle marbled effect that results from the layered construction. A beautifully engraved and paint filled Autodromo logo sets off the gear shifter look. Suspended by a short length of cord, the keychain leaves enough room for your keys and even a small keyfob.
Autodromo originally designed this keychain for the Copperstate 1000 Rally, where it was a big hit, immediately finding its way into the cockpits of vintage Maseratis, Aston Martins, and a Gullwing on the very first day. We think you’ll love it too, whether in your classic or your daily driver.
Available in Black with white logo, or Butterscotch with black logo. Comes in a beautiful vintage-inspired box that will take you back in time.
