my guess would be to buy an LFA... Each bag will wear the corresponding vehicle’s identification number (VIN). try the TUMI site... GL, i'm thinking only 1000 of the bags were made... 2 bags for each LFA. someone correct me if i'm wrong.

Unless you can find someone who is selling theirs, I don't see someone who spent $400,000 on a vehicle selling the matching luggage on eBay, you'd have to buy an LFA.

I didn't get my luggage until several months after I took delivery of my LFA (took delivery Mar '11 and posted about the luggage Sep '11 here). I have seen other cars in dealer rooms with the luggage, so don't know if later cars were delivered with the luggage or what.

I wonder if the tumi luggage only came with US spec cars or something? Does anyone have the press releases from when they were announced?

Thanks for the feedback, wanted to know the situation with other car owners. I'am pushing my Dubai dealer for the luggage, but it seems that they don't know about it. Told them to check with Japan and come back. Find the link to the press release.

Thanks.
From my understanding only US LFA buyers received the special LFA Tumi Luggage with their LFA. Each luggage has their specific VIN# affixed to it like this:

Usually removed out of the "Super Cars" once the owners take delivery...


But that does bring up a good question... Did Tumi only make 179 matching luggage sets for LFA's "sold" via the USA allocations ??

The press release does mention that the luggage "will accompany the car in select markets, including the US and Europe". That leaves it open that some markets do not get the Tumi luggage.

Lexus and Tumi Partner to Create Premiere Custom Luggage for 2012 LFA Supercar
2012 Lexus LFA x Tumi large and small case 2
Leading International Travel, Business and Lifestyle Brand Designs Specialty Pieces for World-Class Lexus Model

NEW YORK – Aug. 12, 2010 – Tumi today announced its partnership with Lexus to create a premium line of travel cases customized to complement the look and feel of the 2012 LFA supercar. The dynamic style of the LFA requires a special design of Tumi luggage which will accompany the car in select markets, including the US and Europe. The vehicle identification number (VIN) corresponding with the owner’s LFA will also be inscribed on each bag to complete the exclusive experience.

Lexus approached Tumi knowing the brand’s expertise in travel, business and lifestyle would satisfy its consumers’ discerning taste. “Like Lexus, Tumi has exceptional brand heritage in performance and function, and the highest level of excellence in design,” said Jerome Griffith, president and chief executive officer for Tumi. “We are excited about the partnership with Lexus because it will further communicate Tumi’s reputation for outstanding quality and craftsmanship.”

The unique line of Tumi cases for the LFA supercar has a hybrid construction, and is styled using components that are directly related to the appearance of the car. Never before have a hard shell, aluminum and carbon fiber-like material, been used in this manner to execute special cases. The custom sizes enable the pieces to be easily packed and lifted from the cargo area. Each case is designed with a distinct purpose. The smaller “concourse” piece is proportioned to fit the essentials for track racing, including gloves and shoes, or items for a quick getaway. The larger “coastal” case is for longer trips when a change of clothes is required. Each piece has an asymmetrical retractable handle and shoulder strap as well as non-skid feet, which hold the luggage in place while the car is in motion.

“The LFA’s unparalleled, hand-built quality dovetails with Tumi’s dedication to creating excellence,” said Dave Nordstrom, Lexus vice president of marketing. “The custom luggage enhances the LFA experience and demonstrates Lexus’ dedication to making each encounter with the brand memorable.”

Initial deliveries of the Lexus LFA will begin in January 2011. LFA production is limited to 500 units worldwide, each being hand-assembled, with approximately 20 scheduled for production each month. For more information visit www.Lexus-LFA.com.

I was told roughly 30 LFA sold in Europe. So roughly 200 sets were made.
