Rolls-Royce Just Changed Road Trips Forever
British luxury automaker develops bag made specificially for travel.
It’s happened to all of us: You’re going on a road trip, and you need to bring some things. Clothing, toiletries, electronics, maybe even some home-packed snacks, if you’re being thrifty. But how? Driving with an unorganized heap of loose items in the trunk is just plain inconvenient, right? Well, fear not, because Rolls-Royce has a solution. It’s called luggage.
Luggage, which is sort of like a bag but made specifically for traveling, comes in sets. According to Rolls-Royce, each “luggage set” consists of six pieces: three weekenders (small, flexible), two valises (large, rigid), and a garment carrier (for clothes). These are handmade from aero-grade aluminum and leather, and emblazoned with the company’s logo. The valises even have wheels and a retractable handle—you can drag it behind instead of balancing it on your head or just kicking it along. In the computer age, the possibilities really are endless.
Unfortunately, the new “luggage set” is only compatible with the trunk of a Rolls-Royce Wraith, where it’s been custom-designed to fit. Priced at $45,854, the high costs of groundbreaking research and development are also apparent. Still, it’s only a matter of time before technology like this trickles down and becomes more accessible. The days of meandering around the country with armfuls of clothing and personal effects may soon be behind us.
