Rolls-Royce Wraith Luggage Costs More Than a Pretty Good Car

The Rolls-Royce Wraith luggage collection has been introduced, and it sports a price tag of $45,854.

Designed as a suite of luggage to complement the Rolls-Royce Wraith, the collection is conceived by Rolls-Royce bespoke designer Michael Bryden. Designed in the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Design Studio led by director of design Giles Taylor, the Rolls-Royce Wraith luggage collection features two Grand Tourer valises, three Long Weekender bags and one garment carrier, all meticulously designed to be housed in the luggage compartment of a Rolls-Royce Wraith. And like any Rolls-Royce luxury car, the luggage set can also be commissioned to the customer’s exact specifications.

The British automaker spoke with head butlers from some of the world’s most illustrious hotels with particular attention to detail paid to the area that most often comes into contact with the owner. As a result, the handles have been designed to ensure an even weight distribution so that there is no undue pressure being placed on the hand.

There’s a bit of Rolls-Royce influence on the luggage set, too, like the Long Weekender formed from a solid billet of machined polished aluminum, inspired by the silhouette of the Wraith. To make sure each piece in the collection is lightweight, carbon fiber was selected while self-righting wheel centers sporting the Rolls-Royce double-R emblem can be found on the Grand Tourer.

“The Wraith Luggage Collection consists of six pieces, each carefully considered to reflect the unparalleled design aesthetics of Rolls-Royce motor cars,” said 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 gran turismo.”
