Lexus Announces LFA Luggage Collection, Tens of Buyers Rejoice
Traveling in the Lexus LFA will soon get a lot better for some of the vehicle's owners, thanks to a new dedicated line of travel cases designed to fit perfectly in the boot area of the $375,000 Japanese supercar. Created in partnership with Tumi, New Jersey-based manufacturer of travel bags and suitcases, the two-piece luggage set will accompany the LFA in select markets, including the US and Europe.
The Tumi cases are styled using components that are directly related to the appearance of the LFA, such as aluminum and carbon fiber-like materials. Each bag will be inscribed with the vehicle identification number (VIN) corresponding to the owner's LFA.
Lexus said each case is designed with a distinct purpose - the smaller piece sized to fit the "essentials for track racing, including gloves and shoes, or items for a quick getaway", and larger one, for longer trips.
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 worldwide, with around 20 cars scheduled to be built each month.
