What says Christmas more than a Neiman Marcus Special Edition Lexus IS-F? There is no way that Tennis Bracelet with all those diamonds nor that very manly pink dress shirt compares to this very special Christmas item to be found in this years Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog. Four-Hundred Horses will outperform that 4 Caret bracelet any day. For $68,000 you get your very own, 1 of 50, special edition IS-F dressed in black with a bold “F” stitched into the seats headrest to remind you that You-Are-Fast! …AND Special (even if that does not start with an “F”.).
Further specialty nuances include a black interior with white accented stitching, a unique steering wheel that also includes white leather accents, and sequentially numbered special edition badging. Also included in your purchase is a half-day of personalizedÂ training at the Skip Barber Racing School, which nearly all buyers of the Lexus IS-F will need inorder to contain all those horses on the road.
Last years specialty car in the Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog was the BMW M6 Convertible, but BMW’s are soooo last year they say. The Lexus IS-F with its 400-hp V8 just purrs of the now and Neiman Marcus is not the only one saying it. Well… technically the other person saying it would be me and a few other car crazies. However with a zero-to-sixty in 4.9 seconds the Lexus IS-F is no ordinary sedan. It is a super smoking sedan that can peel rubber and pin you to the back of your seat as you race off to your local Neiman MarcusÂ to buyÂ a very fashionable driving outfit and some matching racing pearls.
Below is the official press release:
