Each year, retailer Neiman Marcus releases a Christmas catalog detailing some truly absurd gifts. Chief among them is a Neiman Marcus edition car. Usually from a luxury or exotic manufacturer, the Neiman Marcus models are a limited edition and generally sell out very quickly. Past participants have included the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, McLaren MP4-12C Spider, Ferrari FF and, the most plebian car in recent memory, the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible. For this year's catalog, the Maserati Ghibl
Aston Martin unveiled its droptop Vanquish Volante a couple months ago at Pebble Beach, and for 10 lucky souls, the high-performance convertible is going to be a hit this holiday season. Neiman Marcus just released its Christmas Book for 2013, and the car of choice for its annual catalog of high-end goods is none other than the 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante.
Apparently, despite the global economic downturn, some people out there still have large sums of disposable income. We know this because Neiman Marcus sold through a dozen special edition McLaren 12C Spiders in less than two hours Wednesday. At $354,000 each, this single offering grossed Neiman Marcus a staggering $35,400 a minute. Not that we should be surprised. Last year, the retailer sold 10 brand-new Ferrari FF specials out in a mere 50 minutes and in 2009, Neiman Marcus cleared out 50 spec
Neiman Marcus has released its well-known Christmas Book for 2012, and wrapped up within is a holiday surprise we can cheer about. This holiday, 12 lucky (read: wealthy) gearheads will get a 2013 Neiman Marcus Edition McLaren MP4-12C Spider, a seemingly sunnier pick than last year's Ferrari FF.
Your favorite people in the world will be flabbergasted to receive their Volcano Red Spider with its "stainless-steel, special-edition numbered badge" and matching McLaren luggage set. You'll also get
Every year luxury retailer Neiman Marcus picks one car and commissions a lot of them for sale in its holiday catalog. Past examples have varied wildly – from a custom chopper and a Camaro convertible to a Jaguar XJ and a Lexus IS-F – the one common trait being that they'd all be welcome items to find under the Christmas tree. And they always sell out as fast as they can accelerate.
The season for gift-giving is quickly approaching, and if you're all out of ideas for that certain someone special on your list, Neiman Marcus may have just the thing. This year's fantasy gift is a Ferrari FF. For the low, low price of just $395,000, buyers can snag a unique Neiman Marcus version of the all-wheel-drive, 650-horsepower Ferrari hatch. Only 10 versions of the vehicle will be built for the holiday season, each packing its own complimentary custom luggage set as part of the deal. As
Those who do their daily shopping within the pages of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book will be the first able to purchase the new 2009 BMW 7 Series beginning October 17th. The price of early adoption in this case will be a steep $160,000 for one of 31 Neiman Marcus Limited-Edition 2009 BMW Individual 7 Series sedans based on the new 750Li. While that price is tens of thousands above what we expect the 7 Series base price to be, buyers will get much more than just the car. Included in the asking
Even though we just turned over our Jessica Alba calendar to October, Lexus is proclaiming that the holiday season is right around the bend. In keeping with tradition, the L-finesse'd automaker is teaming up with Neiman Marcus to offer its own special holiday edition ride to trust fund kids and recent divorcees in the form of the Lexus IS-F "Special Build."
The BMW M6 convertible may be capable of 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds, but luxury retailer Neiman Marcus found out Wednesday that the German drop-top is nearly as quick off the showroom floor, as it sold its entire stock of 50 limited edition M6 convertibles in a record-breaking 92 seconds.
The McLaren F1, Koenigsegg CCX and Bugatti Veyron all held claim to the worlds fastest car title for at least a short time, by they ain't got nothin' on the Moller M400. Moller M400? Yeah, the Moller M400. It isn't just inching past them either. It will literally fly past these three supercars like they are standing still. It can outpace them by a good 100 mph. Heck, its cruising speed is 275! And it will do it with some added versatility that puts it miles above the competition. Well, 36,000 fe
Neiman Marcus has finally released its famed 2006 Christmas Book of exotic holiday gifts. Not many holiday catalogs offer as wide a range as NM. You can spend $24 on a tin of NM Exclusive Candied Corn, or turn to page 32 for a $160,000 pen. Or if you really want to get your friends something no one else has, just turn to page 87. There you'll find that $1.7 million will buy a ride for 6 in Virgin Atlantic's SpaceShipTwo soaring 63 miles above the Earth.
