In 2014, Louis Vuitton and BMW have launched an exclusive luggage set tailored for the BMW i8. The understated carbon-black of this luggage range matches the colors of the Sophisto Grey BMW i8.
Black and electric blue used in the microfibre lining take their cue from the trademark brand colors of the BMW i8 and bag handles are made from dyed natural leather, a sign of Louis Vuitton quality. All items in the collection come with leather name tags and the iconic Louis Vuitton padlock with the exception of the garment bag.
The BMW i8 Louis Vuitton five-piece luggage was priced at $20,000. Or to put in better perspective, about 15% of the BMW i8 base price.
Toady, one of those exclusive sets made its way on eBay. According to the listing, the auction includes four pieces, original documentation, tags, key, locks, dust bags and Louis Vuitton retail store paper bags in chocolate brown. And the seller says the bags have never been used or traveled with.
The current auction price is at $5,050, but likely the reserve price is much higher.
