Think rich people don’t like the polarizing styling of the BMW 6-series? Think SMG transmissions are annoying? Neiman Marcus doesn’t think so.
Yes, it’s true. All fifty examples of;the new Neiman Marcus edition BMW M6 convertible sold in just one minute, thirty two seconds. That’s $6,950,000;of sales at a pace of $75,543;per;second.;The car, finished in Ruby Black paint and featuring piano lacquer interior trim, costs $139,000–a premium of over $30,000 over a base coupe version of the car. To us, this is all proof that many M6s will spend more time as a status symbol in big cities than as real performers at race tracks. We’re just waiting for the first complaint of a pair of new-in–the-box Manolo Blahniks getting scuffed due to the SMG transmission’s harsh shifts. Or maybe a nail breaking on one of the shifter paddles. Maybe Chrysler should try the same with Crossfire roadsters. What’s that you say? They’re not even selling on overstock.com? Okay, I take it back.
