I’ve never seen anything quite like this. I want 2 of them. In fact, I want one of them for each of my 5 best friends, so we can race them! From the official ICON A5 page on the Neiman Marcus website, here are 10 WOW! factors for this aircraft:

  • An amphibious hull and landing gear to take off and land just as easily on water as on land.
  • The ability to run on automotive gasoline or aviation fuel.
  • A sexy, streamlined two-seat interior with intuitive controls, including
  • FAA-approved flight instrumentation and
  • a state-of-the-art GPS system, so you don’t get lost.
  • A range of 345 land miles or 300 nautical miles.
  • A next-generation lightweight carbon fiber frame.
  • Spy-movie wings that rotate up and fold back out of the way.
  • Removable side windows to dangle your arms out into the wind and sun.
  • A custom, high-tech trailer for fast and easy loading and unloading from land or water.

The Customized Cupcake Car is #2 on my Christmas List by virtue of its WTF??!!?! nature. I mean, I would love to “…Bring it to work and buzz the breakroom. Crash parades! Putter about the ‘hood…” My only concern involves transporting this cupcake from point A to point B. I guess I’d have to purchase a truck. In fact, maybe I could get a matching truck. A boy can dream, right?

Now this is what I’m talking about. I love guitars. And I love Martin acoustic guitars. Naturally, I would love to own the $12,000 Neiman Marcus “Metal Arts” Martin Guitar and Case. Actually, $12,000 is not too bad for a custom C.F. Martin acoustic guitar. Out of all the big items in the catalog, this one is probably the most logical for me. It’s a custom music instrument whose value will increase over time. Count me in!
