Price: $11 million
Steampunk triumphs with the Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter! There, that’s out first thing. Now to the details.
Whoever saw it coming that Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter would later claim pole position at any top ten list of big bikes is probably a seer of the highest order, especially when one considers how it began the market at a “humble” $110,000. And mind you, Neiman Marcus is a name you would rightly connect with department store rather than a superbike.
The unique clockwork design, however, seems to have taken care of all that. The bike’s eye-catching chassis, carved from a single piece of metal, proved to be an extreme hit with enthusiasts. As it turned out, even Apple just used the same approach for its new laptop case at the time. Many design experts agreed: this is styling at its best, where the utility of the vehicle is styled rather than hidden from sight.
Despite the $11 million price tag and mean looks, the Neiman Marcus Limited Edition Fighter is completely street-legal, managing the road at a 190 mph top speed, the power coming from a 120ci 45-degree air-cooled V-Twin engine complemented by titanium, aluminum, and carbon fiber body parts.
