But it's not what you probably think.
Supercars are, by their nature, not very practical. Most only have a small cargo space upfront because the area where the trunk normally lives is taken up by a massive engine. But the new McLaren GT has set out to be a supercar that is usable every day with a combined 20 cubic feet of cargo space via a combination of a front trunk and a large rear hatch area.
A bespoke MSO GT was recently shown off at Pebble Beach and alongside it, the company showed off a custom four-piece luggage collection designed exclusively for the car. Just like the McLaren F1, it will now be easy to take your luggage with you on a weekend getaway in the GT.
McLaren's engineers teamed up with an Italian luggage specialist to ensure the set both looked excellent and maximized cargo capacity with made-to-measure storage solutions for golf clubs. Each piece of the set is hand-assembled by specialists in Italy using the same semi-aniline leather and stitch pattern found in the GT's cabin. GT owners will even have a choice of three colors including Pioneer Black, Luxe Black, and Luxe Porcelain, which McLaren says includes special piping to perfectly match the launch colors of Namaka Blue, Burnished Copper, and Veridian Green.
The four-piece set consists of a garment case, weekend bag, cabin bag, and full-size golf bag, each of which is specifically designed to fit in a specific location in the car, ensuring the two passengers have ample space. McLaren has priced out each of the pieces separately and in pounds, so US pricing may vary. The garment case costs £1,700 ($2,077), the weekend bag is £1,850 ($2,261), the cabin bag is £2,800 ($3,422), and the golf bag is the priciest at £5,000 ($6,111).
Spending almost $14,000 on a luggage set may seem ludicrous but with a starting price of $210,000, the McLaren GT isn't exactly a bargain on its own. The set should maximize the GT's storage potential and perhaps add some value to the car when the next owner goes to buy it.
