Carbon fiber is used in a lot of cars these days, especially those of the high-end variety. You’ll even find it in bicycles, yachts, and even planes.
But as a fashion accessory? We’ve never heard that before.

That, as it turns out, is what Lamborghini is venturing to when it released a new line of carbon fiber bags as part of their new collection. The bags will come in various styles - Travel, Messenger, and Envelope - with each completed in hand-stitched leather with palladium-finish galvanized brass accessories, hand-mounted studs, and cotton lining. The colors of the bags are then highlighted by the diagonal graphite reflections, turn reflected by carbon fiber.

“The uniqueness of these products is not by chance, each one has been carefully studied and is one-of-a-kind, entirely made by hand by craftsmen who carry out each phase of the process,” said Stefan Winkelmann, president and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.

We certainly wouldn’t doubt that these products are unique and they make use of a material that’s never been used on bags before. But just like their supercars, these bags cost more than our budgets would allow.

The cheapest of the three is the Carbon Envelope bag, which you’ll have to pay €850, which is around $1,230 based on current exchange rates. Then there’s the Carbon Messenger, which will set you back €1,050 - that’s $1,500 of your hard earned dollars. Finally, the Carbon Travel bag will cost €1,450. Convert that into Benjamins and you get $2,100.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
