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

The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book is chock full of high-end products that most of us either couldn't or shouldn't afford. But when it comes to a hot-looking, limited edition Camaro Convertible, even a $75,000 price tag isn't enough to scare some of us off. Neiman Marcus and General Motors sold all 100 copies of the exclusive drop-top in a mere three minutes. That's about $2.5 million worth of metal every minute; a sizable amount of dough even for a company the size and shape of GM.

The 100 of a kind Camaro features special Deep Bordeaux paint with like-colored convertible top, plus leather trim that isn't available in any other Bow Tie pony car. Power comes from the same 426 horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 that motivates the Camaro SS.

So if you were hoping to get your hands on a Neiman Marcus Camaro Convertible, you'd better know one of the 100 people who actually bought one. We're sure you're not too heartbroken, though. After all, the rest of us can score a topless Camaro starting at about $30,000. Hit the jump for the GM press release.

DETROIT – In just three minutes earlier today, customers claimed all 100 of the special edition 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertibles prepared exclusively for the annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. These new owners claimed their Neiman Marcus Edition cars via a special telephone reservation process, a few hours after the car appeared on NBC's Today Show.

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. The new owners will take delivery of their special edition cars in the spring of 2011, shortly after the new 2011 Chevrolet Camaro arrives in dealerships.

The Neiman Marcus Edition is defined by its exclusive Deep Bordeaux exterior color, accented by subtle, "ghosted" rally stripes. The exterior color is complimented by a matching fabric top and windshield frame finished in matte silver, both also exclusive to the Neiman Marcus edition.

The Neiman Marcus Camaro Convertible has a retail price of $75,000. For more information on the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, please visit: www.neimanmarcus.com/christmasbook.

All Neiman Marcus Edition Camaro Convertibles will be SS models with a 6.2-liter, V-8 engine. The 100 future owners who made reservations today chose between the 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.

      I wouldn't be surprised if Neiman Marcus bought all of them themselves

        Neiman Marcus = Needless Markup (my snooty sister used to say)

      between this car and that new porsche selling out, I guess the recession did in fact end last summer.

      My brother has one. It's pretty sweet. Beautiful in person! From the 21 in rims to the hurst shifter! Nothing was left out when creating this beauty!

      I'd be willing to bet there won't be a total of 10,000 miles logged across the 100 Needless Markup Camaros over the next 20 years. Kind of sad GM is more concerned with building 100 purple garage queens than improving the regular SS.

        I'm sure they are, but that costs tens of millions of dollars to do. Making this car added probably $2K-3K and made them over $50K in profit.

        Cause you obviously have a handle on what's going on internally at GM, right?

        You don't think it was pretty easy for them to add minimal upgrades/mods to this vehicle, and channel it through NM for a tidy profit and a little bit of extra marketing?

        Do you really believe they're not currently working on a mid-cycle enhancement and/or next-gen Camaro right at this very moment?

        Answer "yes" to any of these questions at your own peril...

        Believe me, nobody at GM wasted any engineering time on this car.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Well, I guess P.T. Barnum was wrong. Apparently, there's about 33 suckers born every minute.
        • 4 Years Ago
        33 and 1/3 every minute (some people get stuck a little getting out)
      • 4 Years Ago
      I bet for the 45k extra you can match the paint buy the name and get much better rims then those toyota prius rims.

      and still have 30k in ur pocket.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I hope those are after-market wheels on the car, and not the one that will come standard on the convertible, because they sure are ugly.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Lots of people out there with more money than sense, obviously.
        • 4 Years Ago
        You know what they say about a fool and his money...
      • 4 Years Ago
      so same engine with no tweaking, some spiffy leather, and only 100 made for $75K? at least you can do is make it a hard top.
      • 4 Years Ago
      A fine representation of everything that is wrong with this world.

      Investigaion Conclusion: This dealership already dropped the priby a $25,000. There is a slim new-car profit margin to begin with... so they're getting raped. Neiman Marcus Camaro SS Convertible http://www.youtube.com/my_videos?feature=mhee
