Pure adrenaline, purely defined. Looking at the picture is enough to give you a head rush. The new 2008 Lexus IS F kicks luxury sedans into high performance heaven. And, with the holidays around the corner, what better way to ring them in than with the ultimate holiday gift? Following in a tradition of "alluring and mystical gifts" including their special editions of the Lexus SC 430, GS 450h and LS 600hL, the Neiman Marcus 2008 Lexus IS F Special Build Sedan debuts as this year's fantasy car in the renowned Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, the upscale retailer's wish book featuring the most luxurious gifts for the holidays.
The IS F is the fastest production car Lexus has ever built...so fast that the Neiman Marcus Special Build Sedan includes a personalized half-day of pro-driver training, including travel and accommodations, compliments of the Skip Barber Racing School. Owners will have the chance to take the high-performance vehicle to the limit - learning real racing skills and experiencing what the IS F can do on the road and on the track.
This IS F "Special Build" features an Obsidian black exterior with perforated black leather trimmed sports seats, specially chosen white accent stitching, unique steering wheel with white leather accents, front headrests embossed with an F logo, a sequentially-numbered Special Build badge and a Mark Levinson® state-of-the-art CD/DVD Premium Surround Sound Audio System with navigation and Bluetooth.
There's also a very important exterior difference: rather than the monochromatic graphite-finished wheels for regular North American-market IS Fs, the Neiman Marcus IS F will feature the two-tone finished, hand-polished wheels featured on the original Detroit Auto Show IS F and on European market IS Fs.
Only 50 Neiman Marcus IS F special build sedans will be made, and they will be among the very first IS Fs off the assembly line. They will be sold for $68,000.
To place orders, customers may call toll free 1.888.747.4504, beginning at 12 Noon Eastern Daylight Time on Thursday 18 October 2007. Let's see in how many minutes these 50 IS Fs sell out...
