If women can match their accessories with their dress, why can’t men match their luggage with fancy cars?
Luxury luggage maker Tumi announced a partnership with Lexus to create a premium line of travel cases that complement the look and feel of the Lexus LFA supercar. The travel cases are designed to complement the look and the feel of the vehicle and will accompany it in selected markets, including the US and Europe. Each bag will wear the corresponding vehicle’s identification number (VIN).
The unique line of Tumi cases for the LFA supercar has a hybrid construction, and is styled using components that are directly related to the appearance of the car. Never before have a hard shell, aluminum and carbon fiber-like material, been used in this manner to execute special cases. The custom sizes enable the pieces to be easily packed and lifted from the cargo area.
Each case is designed with a distinct purpose. The smaller ‘concourse’ piece is proportioned to fit the essentials for track racing, including gloves and shoes, or items for a quick getaway. The larger ‘coastal’ case is for longer trips when a change of clothes is required. Each piece has an asymmetrical retractable handle and shoulder strap as well as non-skid feet, which hold the luggage in place while the car is in motion.
The first deliveries of the 552HP V10-powered Lexus LFA will be begin January next year. Production will be limited to a total of 500 units of $375,000 Japanese supercar, with around 20 cars scheduled to be built each month.
