Going, Going, Gone! 2002 Neiman Marcus Edition Lincoln Blackwood Sells Out
IRVINE, Calif. - The phones were ablaze as the 2002 Neiman Marcus Edition Lincoln Blackwood went on sale this morning - and quicker than a racing pony out of the gate, all 50 vehicles, destined to become collectors' items, sold out in less than 8 hours.
"The response we have received on the Neiman Marcus Edition Lincoln Blackwood has exceeded our expectations," said Lisa Bacus, Blackwood brand manager. "This morning's sales event confirms customers' enthusiasm for Blackwood and is an indication of how well-received the vehicle is in the marketplace."
Unlike other vehicles on the road today, Lincoln Blackwood combines the elegance and comfort of a luxury car, the versatility and convenience of an SUV, and the handling of a sports sedan. The interior wraps four passengers in an indulgent, luxurious cabin trimmed in black leather and wood, while the exterior marries the dramatic presence of a deep-gloss black Lincoln Navigator with a unique and distinctive box-like trunk with a power-operated tonneau cover.
The Neiman Marcus Edition Blackwood exemplifies the 2002 Blackwood's versatility by featuring one-of-a-kind design and entertainment elements. All four headrests feature a Neiman Marcus stitched logo. The leather-wrapped rear-console lid features a 7-inch Panasonic LCD Wide Screen DVD/Video-CD/CD player with game center hook-up and two wireless headphones. Located inside is a cooler/warmer, large enough to hold goodies for two.
The Neiman Marcus Blackwood is priced at $58,800 and customers placing their orders today will take delivery of their vehicles in early fall 2001.
