Neiman Marcus Edition Bmw M6 Convertible Sells Out In Record-breaking One Min


Dial-up Frenzy as Customers Vie To Be Among The First Fifty Callers

Woodcliff Lake, NJ - October 18, 2006... The holidays are coming early for 50 Neiman Marcus customers who managed to place their calls into BMW to order the new 2007 BMW M6 Convertible that was featured in this year's Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, as it went on sale today at 12 PM, EDT.

As the clock struck noon, the 1-866-303-2696 phone lines were completely lit up with buyers who wanted to be sure they were among the first in the U.S. to own the just-introduced Limited Edition M6. The Convertible sold out in a mere one minute, thirty-two seconds.

Billed as the "must-have" automobile for the person who has everything, the luxury convertible made its U.S. debut at the unveiling of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book in Dallas on October 3rd. Only 50 of these new U.S. limited-edition models, built especially for Neiman Marcus, are being produced in the inaugural year. They feature custom Ruby Black exterior finish accented with Piano Black trim elements, and power sports seats wrapped in a custom Gold Brown shade of supple BMW Individual Merino leather. The car can launch you from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 exhilarating seconds, and features a powerful 5.0-liter V-10 engine that produces 500 horsepower.

The Limited Edition 2007 BMW M6 Convertible is featured on pages 96-97 of the 2006 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, and retails for $139,000.

To see the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, go to www.neimanmarcus.com.

I am happy that the Gayman Marcus project was a success. That means they will likely repeat this stunt with other models, hopefully something less than $100k.

This is the second time. The first time was the launch of the 645 a few years ago.
