About the Neiman Marcus Z3 007 edition
Back in 1995 James McDowell, vice president of marketing at BMW North America, Inc. and mail-order firm Neiman Marcus worked together to launch the BMW Z3 special edition “007 JAMES BOND” in the 1995 Neiman Marcus Christmas Catalog. Along with the car, the buyer would receive 2 tickets for a GoldenEye dinner party in LA with Pierce Brosnan. Originally BMW and Neiman Marcus had set a 20-unit sales goal over the 3,5 month Christmas selling period. In two days, 100 Z3 orders were placed, so BMW agreed to increase the total production to 100 units.
