As with all Simon Jordan creations, client-led bespoke options are available. In recognition of the time when car numbers changed from race to race, customers can choose to have their holdall customised with a number of their choice. An owner may choose a significant number to them, such as a birthday, or perhaps to depict the number displayed on their own racing car.
A subtle design feature of the Classic Team Lotus type 49 Heritage Holdall is the monogram embossed on the zip pulls, luggage tag and matching key ring. The ACBC monogram was created by Anthony Colin Bruce Chapman who chose to incorporate his personal monogram within the original Lotus logo.

Together we have created a luxurious holdall which respects the contribution Colin Chapman made to motorsport with the type 49, and the unrivalled talent of its drivers.
