Rolls-Royce unveils $45,000 luggage set


Rolls-Royces come with many features, but bespoke luggage generally hasn't been one of them—until now.

The British automaker has created a line of luggage inspired by its new Wraith. Although the Wraith may be the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever built, the suitcases aren't exactly rated for high-performance duty. Instead, they're designed to balance function and style.

Regarding function, Rolls-Royce says its Bespoke Design Studio consulted head butlers at "some of the world's most illustrious hotels" for their input on how to best make luggage.

Rolls-Royce utilized carbon fiber for the suitcases' internals. The stitching is matched to the color of buyers' Rolls-Royces, and the handles have an invisible stitch to ensure a smooth finish. Buyers also have a choice between a two-tone or monotone leather exterior appearance.

The set includes two Grand Tourer valises, three Long Weekender bags, and one Garment Carrier, all designed to fit in the boot, er, trunk, of the Rolls-Royce Wraith. Like the full-size car, the Grand Tourer even has wheels with self-righting wheel centers.

Notably, the suitcases are hand-crafted by workers who wear white gloves during the assembly process so as not to mar the leather. We're guessing that these suitcases won't be manhandled by airline baggage crews. Instead, it seems safe to say that they will ride in the luggage bays of private jets when they are not in Rolls-Royce trunks. 

The collection includes six pieces, each of which is embossed with the automaker's Spirit of Ecstasy logo.

The luggage set lists from $45,854 in the United States, though Rolls-Royce says that pieces can be purchased individually from dealers.
