I would like to be an owner of the custom luggage but at £4000 for a set my skinflint mentality surfaces. I have searched for a shop soiled set without success so went into Tesco and found a canvas holdall that fits perfectly in the front tub.

£9.99

Mclaren logo now needed. :D

I'm sure MSO will sell you a carbon fibre logo with NASA grade adhesive for somewhere around £1200. Custom luggage for 1/4 the price, result.

We use Tesco plastic bags and bin bags - very classy

I hope they are Bags For Life in keeping with the Mac's Green credentials!

Yep, all about the glass half full. Give you another example; McLaren Orange + Sports exhaust (my spec) is actually a passive safety feature so that less aware road users can hear and see me coming from further away, do the decent thing and pull over:)

Has anybody discovered any luggage that fits nicely on the shelf behind the seats?
I've read that it's not really supposed to have that much weight put on it, but I'm hoping that a small overnight bag might be acceptable and will make the euro trips a little easier on the packing!!

I've emailed them but by the looks it's all made to order, 6-8 weeks delivery
Will see what they can do...

No other suggestions on what other people use?

Obviously, the bespoke/specific luggage set has its own appeal & allure. But, if compelled for some quality, versatile, and well-fitting storage gear, I'm sure looking into offerings & vendors at a lifestyle/activities store would yield something (ie. REI, etc).

Also, custom luggage & the like can be spec'd to-order from Int'l based leather ateliers for rather compelling price-points. Personally, speaking, that would be something I'd look into! And then, add'on the McLaren motif fabricated in unobtanium using adamantium, via MSO! :D

Function over form I guess....;)

I've found that two 29ltr bags fit perfectly on the rear shelf.. :)

In the event that this post offends everyone to merit a permanent ban - it's been fun :)

Fits perfectly ... :p
Boy at first glance I thought that was a ski bag, but a second look revealed something completely different. As I always like to say, to each his own or what ever turns your crank. I'm thinking though that your Mac may have an allergic reaction to all of that Italian paraphernalia. LOL...??. Cheers....??
