The 2004 BMW 645Ci featured in this year's Neiman Marcus Christmas Book went on sale recently via a phone hotline - six minutes and 57 seconds later, all 50 of the U.S. limited-edition models were sold.

Featuring stratus Gray exterior finish and soft cr'me beige leather interior, the 645Ci is powered by a 4.4-litre, V-8 engine that produces 325 horsepower and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds.

Those who missed the jump in the lightning sell-out of the US$75,170 sports car will have to wait until 2005, as only 50 are being produced in the inaugural year.

The Limited Edition 2004 BMW 645Ci is featured in the 2003 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.
