Last year, the Neiman Marcus limited-edition Maserati Quattroporte flew off the shelves like G&Ts at the last Gawker holiday party. This year, the high-end retailer is including the Lexus GS 400h hybrid sedan in its 2005 Christmas Book, the nouveaux-bourgeois Sears catalog for ladies who lunch (and the gentlemen who keep them in frissee and Prada). A mere 75 of the Neiman Marcus limited-edition GS hybrid (not shown) will be built, each in Crystalline Ice an exclusive exterior color (matches her eyes), plus a coordinating car cover (natch) and two sets of floor mats with the Neiman Marcus logo, all for $65,000. Delivery is scheduled for Spring 2006. The cars go on sale at noon on October 19. Act fast, Charles, the Maserati sold out in 36 minutes.
