Neiman Marcus Edition Chevrolet Camaro Convertible – Click above for high-res image gallery

It's a big day for the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible. General Motors has pulled back the curtains on a low-volume special edition version of the drop-top muscle car set to go on sale next year. The vehicle is slated to be featured in the annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Book – a catalog of high-end goodies for the ruling class. Only 100 examples of the Neiman Marcus Camaro Convertible will be sold through the catalog, each wearing special Deep Bordeaux paint and boasting drivetrain components borrowed from the mighty Camaro SS. That means there's a full 426 horsepower on tap. Inside, GM has slathered the cockpit in leather touches only available on this special edition.

Want one? You better have been one very, very good boy or girl this year. The price tag for the beast you see above is a heady $75,000.

The General also showed off a handful of additional photos of the standard Camaro Convertible on Facebook. This time, we get a closer look at the vehicle's interior as well as a view from the front of the car. It looks good, sure, but we don't know if its $75,000 good. Fortunately, the base Camaro drop head should come at a more tolerable $30,000. Hit the jump for the press release. Thanks for the tip, Jason!

Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Showcased in Neiman Marcus "Christmas Book"

DETROIT – A special edition of the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible will be showcased in the annual Neiman Marcus "Christmas Book," the luxury retailer announced today.

Only 100 special edition convertibles will be built, each offering luxury appointments inspired by Neiman Marcus combined with the legendary performance of the Camaro SS. This is the 84th edition of the luxury retailer's catalog of ultimate holiday gifts. Neiman Marcus debuted the Christmas Book and the special edition Camaro Convertible today at its flagship store in Dallas.

"Neiman Marcus provides a great platform to showcase the new Camaro Convertible," said Tom Peters, Chevrolet Design director. "And, it enabled us to create a special edition car that combines the powerful design and performance of the new Camaro with an element of exclusivity, craftsmanship and customized luxury."

The Neiman Marcus Edition is defined by its exclusive Deep Bordeaux exterior color, accented by subtle, "ghosted" rally stripes.

"The tri-coat, metallic paint shifts in response to natural light," said Peters. "In low light, it appears almost black with a touch of deep violet. In sunlight, a little bit of red and burgundy appear."

The Deep Bordeaux color is complimented by a color-matched fabric top and windshield frame finished in matte silver, both also exclusive to the Neiman Marcus edition.

The interior of the Neiman Marcus Edition Camaro Convertible features exclusive leather interior appointments, including amber-colored leather seating surfaces offset by black leather side panels and red stitching. Red accents also appear on the center console, steering wheel and shift knob. The Deep Bordeaux color from the exterior is brought inside the car, appearing on the dash and door panels.

The Neiman Marcus Camaro Convertible has a retail price of $75,000, and will be ready for delivery in the spring of 2011. Reservations for one of these limited-edition cars will be accepted beginning at noon, EDT, on October 19, 2010. To place a reservation, customers can call 1.877.662.6276. For more information on the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, please visit: www.neimanmarcus.com/christmasbook.

All Neiman Marcus Camaro Convertibles will be equipped with a 6.2-liter, V-8 engine, When paired with six-speed manual transmission, the engine delivers 426 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque; with the six-speed automatic, the engine delivers 400 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque.

The Neiman Marcus Edition Convertible also has exclusive, 21-inch, polished aluminum wheels, wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero ultra-high performance tires. Other features include Brembo disc brakes, LED halo-ring headlamps, Bluetooth connectivity, rear parking assist, and a 245-watt, Boston Acoustics sound system.

      I still don't understand the purpose of leather seats in a performance car. In hard cornering your posterior slides around, plus leather requires (in my opinion) significant (read: too much) care to keep it looking nice. People think leather is better/nicer simply because it's more expensive than cloth.

      I command Neiman Marcus to stop designing car interiors that cost 40K. It's not like it's going to be worth anymore when you try to sell it as a classic. Sure there are only 100, 100 with that leather, but thousands that have 99% of the cars' make. There were no engine or suspension modifications so, you want us to pay all that for leather?

      Think Ill pass on the camaro "needless markup"...can imagine ANYONE being stupid enough to buy this POS.

      Too rich for my blood. Probably why I've never actually seen the inside of a Neiman Marcus catalogue...

      If someone has $75k to blow on a limited edition toy, more power to them.

      Frankly, I think the bigger fools are dropping $1k on iPhones. But it's all what your into so I don't judge.

      75K for a red-blooded American Convertible, and you've gotta roll in..........that garish purple?

      That color was all well and good on the Plymouth Prowler ten years ago..........but in 2010?

      Only if your name happens to be Doctor Detroit!

      My 1968 Dodge Dart will kill this car if I hit it at 40 MPH. Let see $ 850.00 car goes into a $75,000.00 once....

      75k for that?

      I'd get a used GTR for that money, and then some.

      Like the Neiman Marcus edition T-Bird wasn't a big enough FAIL to prevent GM from trying it. I always say that a smart person learns from his mistakes, and an even smarter person learns from the mistakes of others.

      With that interior? No thanks.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Wow. I think there's a quote about a fool and his money that can be their slogan.
      paint + leather /= 30ish grand bump.

        Needless Markup
