If the Lexus IS F was too common for you, Neiman Marcus will soon be offering seven 700NM Hennessey Venom Dodge Vipers for the low-low price of $179,500, which is approximately the cost of three handbags in their catalog. Unlike the very pedestrian blue-and-white of the previous Hennessey 650R, these precious snakes come in black with a matching black-and-red leather interior. For all that change you get 700 horsepower, 645 lb.-ft. of torque, a day of performance driving school at Lonestar Motorsports Park and a lot to brag about. But as they say in Texas: it ain't braggin if it's true. Take this and a little SRV and you've got quite the weekend. Press release and hi-res photo below.
