If you're going to drop six figures on a new supercar, you're not going to put just any old piece of luggage in that tiny trunk, are you? Of course not. That's why Ferrari turned to Schedoni. The 125-year-old Italian leather-crafters makes all the fitted luggage for Ferrari roadcars. They even make that little pad at the back of the Scuderia's F1 cockpit to keep Felipe and Kimi's helmets from knocking against the carbon fiber as they speed around the circuit. But that's not the only interaction Schedoni has with the lightweight exotic material.

This carbon fiber briefcase is crafted from the choicest material and painstakingly baked to perfection like a frat-boy in Amsterdam. Schedoni then works its magic, lining the case with the finest tanned suede and leather trim. Of course it don't come cheap, retailing for $4,400. They offer a carbon fiber backgammon board with titanium pieces for $5,800. Seems ridiculously extravagant to us, but when you've got the cash to spare, why not lighten up a little?

      so you spend that much on a briefcase, it's nice and all that. But it's CF - the instant you throw it in the back of your Ferrari (or lambo) or Kia... it's going to get scratched to hell and look like butt.

        I would never throw it. I would place it, with utmost deliberation.

      If the Obama's can wear $550 tennis shoes, why not...

      In true Ferrari fashion, it is both the sexiest and ugliest briefcase I have ever seen.

        I can not tell if I love it or am disgusted by it. Maybe if the leather was not tan it would look less 1970s.

      I wonder if it's any lighter and/or stronger than a typical briefcase of similar size? If it had some sort of functional advantage I could at least, somewhat, justify the price.

      I'm reminded of the deleted scene in the original Austin Powers where he delivers the money, but it is short $900 because he had to buy the briefcase to put the money in.

      Does it come with KERS?

      For the Ferrari owner who has everything. Spend 4400 dollars on a carbon fibre lined briefcase. I like it. It would be a cool conversation piece though.

      Why can't Ferrari just focus on building cars?

      Honestly, I thought it would have cost more.
