Rolls-Royce’s Luggage Set Costs More Than A BMW 3-Series

Even if your bank account allows for the purchase of a Rolls-Royce Wraith, you still may balk at the asking price for the company’s matching, bespoke luggage set.

Why? Because at $45,858 in the United States, the “Wraith Luggage Collection” actually costs more than a brand new BMW 3-Series, which starts from $33,150 in the 320i Sedan guise!

Order it in Europe and it will set you back for €28,984, while in the UK, it costs £24,248. In Japan, Rolls-Royce has priced it at 4,753,323 YEN, in Canada it can be had at $44,925, while in the rest of the world it’s available from $42,606.

Consisting of six pieces, the luggage set reflects “the unparalleled design aesthetics of Rolls-Royce motor cars”, according to brand designer, Michael Bryden. “The latest technologies and materials are blended with traditional crafts and techniques, leading to an elegantly executed and thoroughly contemporary luggage collection, designed exclusively for Wraith, the ultimate gentleman’s grand Turismo.”

Made from carbon fiber, selected for its light weight and durable properties, and wrapped in hand-stitched leather, each bag has the “Spirit of Ecstasy” flying lady figurine, while the self-righting wheel centers have the brand’s double-R emblem. Moreover, Rolls-Royce offers a level of personalization, as each set can be had in the same single- or two-tone colors as the ones featured on  the owner’s car.
