The leather luggage set is predictably pricey...

McLaren has launched a luxury leather luggage set designed specifically to fit in the load bay of its GT sports car.

Designed by the company’s McLaren Special Operations (MSO) division, the bespoke set includes a garment case, weekend bag, cabin bag, and full-size golf club bag. Each of these can be specified in shades that are designed to match the interior options available with the $210,000 sports car.

As a result, buyers can choose between three basic leather colors - Pioneer Black, Luxe Black, and Luxe Porcelain - while there’s a choice of stitching and piping colors designed to complement the car’s other options. That means you can have the bags trimmed with Namaka Blue, Burnished Copper or Veridian Green.

Each piece of luggage is designed to fit a specific location in the car, which McLaren says will guarantee that two people can carry what they need for “a range of lifestyle and sporting activities” in the new GT, which is designed to be the most practical model in the range.

The cheapest of these items - the garment case - comes in at $2,300 and measures 58.5 x 56.5 x 12 cm (23” x 22.2” x 4.7”), giving it a total volume of 39.6 liters (1.39 cu.ft). The bag, which is designed to sit on top of other luggage without restricting the view from the rear of the car, features two external pockets and bespoke McLaren GT aluminum zips, as well as soft grey lining featuring the McLaren logo and a metal clothes hanger.

The $2,500 weekend bag, meanwhile, is a slightly smaller holdall-type bag, with a total capacity of 31.3 liters (1.1 cu.ft). Like the garment case, it comes with McLaren zips and grey lining, but it also offers a 38-degree styled integrated pocket, a folded leather handle and carry strap, plus two external pockets. McLaren says this bag is the most versatile in the set, with the rear luggage bay being able to accommodate several of these bags in combination with the cabin bag. It will also fit in the front luggage bay.

Adding the cabin bag to the mix will set you back $3,800 per item, but McLaren says two examples of the 39.6 liters (1.39 cu.ft) suitcase will slot into the car’s rear luggage bay. Again, it comes with aluminum zips and grey lining, but it gets a telescopic handle, document pocket, and one internal pocket.

Finally, the most expensive item in the range is the $6,800 golf bag. McLaren says it’s designed to take a full set of clubs, with four central dividers to separate them and several front-facing pockets for the various items of paraphernalia golfers carry on the course. There’s a handle for short-distance lifting, as well as a securable rain hood designed to keep clubs dry and integrated security straps.

First deliveries are scheduled to begin in the United States towards the end of 2019.

McLaren Automotive announces first all-new bespoke luggage collection by McLaren Special Operations for the new McLaren GT

  • Bespoke luxury and McLaren design DNA ensure an elegant case for every pursuit
  • Four-piece collection designed exclusively for the McLaren GT: garment case, weekend bag, cabin bag and full-size golf club bag in leather and trim choices to match the car’s interior
  • Customized set of luggage alongside a special McLaren GT by MSO was displayed on the Concept Car Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, August 18th

McLaren Automotive, the creator of luxury high performance sportscars and supercars, reveals today its first bespoke luggage collection, designed exclusively for the McLaren GT by McLaren Special Operations. Developed together by McLaren Automotive’s design and engineering teams and a luggage specialist, the four-piece set maximizes the McLaren GT’s capacious luggage space and includes made-to-measure storage solutions for golf clubs.

With the McLaren GT’s deep front storage area and long rear luggage deck under the lift-up glass tailgate, the supercar of grand tourers is not only McLaren’s most spacious and practical car, but also ranks amongst the most flexible and accommodating mid-engined two-seaters ever made. The McLaren GT Luggage Set has been designed and developed to conform to the brand highest’s standards of engineering, quality and exclusivity, and consists of four pieces: the garment case, the weekend bag, the cabin bag and the full-size golf bag.

Each bag in the collection is hand-assembled by specialists in Italy, using the same soft and supple semi-aniline leather and stitch pattern that adorns the interior of the McLaren GT. Three colors are available: Pioneer Black, Luxe Black and Luxe Porcelain. Stitching and piping colorways have been selected to match the GT’s two specification levels—Pioneer and Luxe—and perfectly complement all the McLaren GT’s exterior color options, including the launch colors of Namaka Blue, Burnished Copper and Veridian Green.

With each piece of luggage designed to fit a specific location in the car, two people are assured of ample secure storage for a range of lifestyle and sporting activities, as well as for luxurious long-distance travel. The GT’s exceptional comfort, refinement and light cabin ambience seamlessly blends with authentic McLaren supercar performance and agility.

The luggage set was shown during Monterey Car Week, alongside a special McLaren GT by MSO that debuted on the Concept Car Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, August 18th. Designed to showcase the personalization options available through MSO for the McLaren GT, this example features an MSO Defined Flux Silver exterior paint color, with MSO Bespoke Satin Graphite exterior paint applied to the door skits, front splitter, wing mirrors, rear bumper and rear diffuser. The interior features striking MSO Bespoke Goeform Stitching throughout, elevating the cabin to further levels of luxury and sophistication.

The McLaren GT is priced from $210,000 (US) with first deliveries expected by the end of 2019. The Luggage Set is available to order beginning in September through McLaren retailers.
