All I Want for Christmas…is My McLaren 12C?

McLaren is Neiman Marcus holiday catalog pick.

by on Oct.11, 2012

Ho-ho-ho, Merry Christmas? All that's missing from the Neiman Marcus McLaren 12C is the bow.

We haven’t even seen Santa anchor New York’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade yet, but with the local CostCo already lighting up the artificial tree we’ve begun to scratch our head hoping to think up some creative Christmas presents.

If only we had the money to pop for the big one being offered by Neiman Marcus in its holiday catalog this year.  The caterer to America’s 1%, the Dallas-based chain is offering a dozen special edition McLaren 12C Spiders.

“What will it be today? “Normal,” “Sport,” or “Track” mode? You set the handling and head out,” suggests the new Neiman Marcus Holiday Catalog. “It’s a beautiful day for a drive. How about putting the top down? No need to pull over—with the push of a button, it retracts in just 17 seconds while traveling undr 20 mph. The coast is clear, and you punch it. AHHH! The incredible rush of hitting 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. Curve ahead! Channeling Bruce McLaren, you head into the turn . . .”

Holiday News!

Of course, folks don’t refer to the tony store as “Needless Markups” for nothing.  The catalog edition of the McLaren 12C will go for a whopping $354,000, about $86,000 more than what you’d pay at one of the maker’s equal upscale dealers.  Out of that premium, however, McLaren promises $3,000 will go to charity – specifically Big Brothers Big Sisters.

It took three minutes for Neiman Marcus to sell out the 100 Camaro Convertibles.

Looking for that special holiday gift for your family gearhead?  You might want to check out the annual Neiman Marcus holiday catalog for their special-edition 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible.

Whoops, never mind.  After getting a big send off on the NBC network’s Today Show, all 100 of the pony cars reserved for the highline retailer sold out three minutes after the order line was opened.

And that’s despite a stiff premium.  The Neiman Marcus Camaro Convertible carried a list price of $75,000.

The limited-edition model was offered in an exclusive Deep Bordeaux paint with subtle, “ghosted” rally stripes.  The canvas top was done in a complimentary color, with the windshield framed in a special silver matte finish.

Inside, the Neiman Marcus edition featured two-tone black and orange upholstery.
