That Truffle Mica is a beautiful color. But why matched to a WHITE interior? Seriously would you guys want a white interior?

Anyway, beautiful car.

I love white/off white interiors, especially for a luxury oriented car, the only down side is the high maintainence in keeping it clean.

Because it shows dirt the most (inside and out)...
Because it shows orange peel the most...
Because not everyone wants to look like Darth Vadar
Because it's not exactly warm and fuzzy

Default Nieman Marcus will sell Lexus the LS 600h L Launch Edition

Luxury Retailer's InCircle(R) Members to Be Among the First to Own World's
First Luxury Full Hybrid V8 Vehicle

TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 4 -- In celebration of Neiman Marcus' 100th anniversary in October, Lexus is making available 100 specially equipped LS 600h L Launch Edition models to be offered through the retailer to its InCircle(R) members -- customers belonging to the luxury retailer's customer recognition program. The InCircle program has a long history of established partnerships with select companies dedicated to excellence. To that end, Neiman Marcus this year offers this exclusively designed vehicle from Lexus directly to
its InCircle members.

Offered to Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman customers, the InCircle program provides members the opportunity to earn points on an annual basis. These points may be redeemed at any time throughout the year once the customer has accumulated enough for the gift of their choice. Additional program information can be obtained at http://www.InCircle.com. "Since its inception nearly 25 years ago, InCircle has been known for
serving individuals who demand the finest and are committed to luxury as a constant in their lives," said Jeffrey Netzer, vice president of Neiman Marcus Customer Programs. He continued, "InCircle is proud to announce
Lexus as our newest automotive partner to participate in our renowned customer recognition program. We are pleased to extend this exclusive purchase offer with one of the most prestigious automotive brands to our members."

The LS 600h L is the world's first luxury full hybrid V8 vehicle, available to the public mid-2007. But for the fortunate few, 100 specially-equipped Limited Edition models of Lexus' most inspired and innovative vehicle will be available for purchase by InCircle members. "Lexus is proud to offer this revolutionary car to Neiman Marcus' most loyal and discerning customers," said Deborah Meyer, vice president of marketing for Lexus. "They will not be disappointed -- the LS 600h L stands alone in its class as the world's foremost hybrid vehicle in performance,
style, safety and luxury." Each of the 100 LS 600h L Launch Edition models will feature a special exterior color, Truffle Mica, a sophisticated four-coat color with a lustrous clear coat highlighting the fluid, sculpted lines of the LS. The interior will feature a luxurious Alabaster color, with interior badging that marks the LS 600h L as a Launch Edition vehicle. Exclusive 19-inch chrome alloy wheels have been created for this edition LS. In addition,
owners will receive a specially crafted Italian leather luggage set that will match the unique interior color scheme.


The hybrid-drive system in the LS 600h L combines an all-new five-liter V8 gasoline engine with large, high-output electric motors and a newly designed large-capacity battery pack. This advanced combination will provide the LS 600h L with an unmatched balance of environmental efficiency and a peak combined output rating of more than 430 horsepower. Technology amenities will include voice-activated hard disk drive (HDD) Navigation with Bluetooth(R) technology and XM real-time traffic system, a first in the prestige luxury segment, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with power nine-inch drop-down screen, and the specially developed 19-speaker 450-watt Mark Levinson(R) Reference Surround Sound audio system, which creates a new standard for automotive sound systems. In addition, the LS 600h L will be the world's first vehicle to be equipped with LED
headlights for nighttime and low-beam use. The all-new LS 600h L will offer an Advanced Parking Guidance System. The driver simply selects a parking spot, lines up the vehicle and pushes a button and the system parks the car with just a little brake work by the driver.

The GS 450h was also released "first" through NM but my perception was that it didn't work out all that well for the NM edition buyers. They didn't appear to receive theirs much in advance of anyone else and they actually may have paid more and gotten less as the NM edition didn't include some performance options (worth about $4500) that were included on the 450h I got that cost about the same as an NM edition.

I bought the first regular 450h that my dealer received and their NM purchaser received theirs about a week before I bought mine. Hopefully the NM 600h L will prove to actually be delivered much earlier than the regular versions and be fully equipped in order to justify the probably steep NM price. At least the truffle mica looks like it may be a much more broadly accepted color than was the NM 450h color.

The Truffle Mica is actually a "regular" color available for all LS460's in Canada & Japan, probably some other countries too . . .

it's not necessarily about being "earlier", i don't think that's the point. it's about being special and exclusive.

back in 01 when the sc430 first came out, they had the NM as well and those cars went out in mins

I think Lexus is serious about performance with this one because they didn't choose to mock S-Class AMG without a reason

Default I have this car here for sale

I dont beleive the cars in the Pictures are actually of the Neiman Marcus "Launch Edition", as they DO not have the Edition RIMS on them. It must simply be a regular LS600HL.
Go to classifies....Rare neiman marcus edition #12 of 100...bruce tcs@pipeline.com
