Marking a significant milestone in the world of elite motorsports and luxury supercars, the McLaren 60th Anniversary Collection is an exceptional collaboration between TUMI and McLaren, designed to inspire and elevate the travel experience.

This limited-edition collection captures the essence of both brands’ commitment to innovation, performance, and design excellence, setting a new benchmark in the lifestyle and travel industry.

Sixty years ago, Bruce McLaren, a visionary New Zealand-born racer and engineer, established a racing team in England that would go on to become one of the most successful names in motorsport. With 20 Formula 1 World Championships, 183 Formula 1 grand prix wins, three Indianapolis 500 victories, and a 24 Hours of Le Mans triumph, McLaren has left an indelible mark on the world of racing and supercars. The launch of the TUMI | McLaren 60th Anniversary Collection is a testament to this enduring legacy.
