For island lovers everywhere Neiman Marcus is offering the world’s most stylish surrey-topped beach car. The vehicles are modern updates to the Fiat 600 Jolly that once zipped around Monaco, Nice, and Cannes in the 1950s and ’60s. They were carried aboard the yachts of princesses, movie stars, and moguls to use as onshore transport to resorts, restaurants, and adventure.
These His & Hers Island Cars (a part of the Neiman Marcus 2016 “Fantasy Gifts” guide) at $65,000 each, definitely have raised the bar. They are highly bespoke versions of the ones built by Island Car Limited in Florida. Top-notch features include tough composite bodies, stainless steel fittings, powerful and clean electric motors, long-range batteries, and a sound system with Bose speakers and Bluetooth capabilities.
But it wouldn’t be Neiman Marcus without insisting on even more: His Island Car comes in crisp, custom green. Hers is pretty in pink. Both come in authentic Lilly Pulitzer prints, not only for the seats and removable fabric tops, but for the totes, towels, his swim trunks, and her caftan, too.
While admiring looks are all but guaranteed and these matching His & Hers Island Cars do make perfect holiday gifts – with the purchase of each His & Hers Neiman Marcus Island Car, Neiman Marcus will donate $5,000 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation.
