Called the ‘Viva Las Vegas Suit’, after the King’s famous hit, there will be two versions – one in red, one in white.
Both feature signature star details on the trousers in homage to the Hound Dog star.
“Elvis left his mark on Vegas and the world, becoming synonymous with the glitz, the flash, and the energy of the strip, something we are hoping to replicate as we take to the track on Saturday night.”
Fans will be able to get their hands on merch thanks to a partnership with Oracle Red Bull Racing and Elvis Presley Enterprises.
Hoodies, T-shirts, fleeces, hoodies and totes featuring vintage images of Elvis adorned in race-gear along with a modification of his famed quote “Ambition is a Dream with a V8 V6 Engine” will be sold at the Elvis Presley Amazon Shop.
In 1969, Elvis famously kicked off a seven-year residency in Sin City at the International Hotel, which became the Las Vegas Hilton in 1971 and is now the Westgate.
He performed an astonishing 636 shows, often two per night, on a showroom stage that still exists.
However, in 1977 that came to an end when he was found dead at his beloved Graceland mansion in Memphis.
Doctors said he died of a heart attack, potentially triggered by his addiction to prescription barbiturates.
