First Chance at 2011 Camaro Convertible Comes in Neiman Marcus Christmas Book

The Chevy Camaro Convertible will hit the market in the first quarter of next year with a base price of $30,000. That's for us regular muscle drop-top lovin' folks. If you happen to have the funds to be able to invest more than double in an exclusive Camaro SS Convertible, you'll be able to place your order in a few short weeks. Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, a unique holiday catalog for the wealthy, hard to buy for, and jaded will offer the market's first Camaro Convertible beginning later this month. Not only will Neiman customers get to be the first to order the convertible Camaro, they'll be treated to a model with luxurious accents inside and out.

The most compelling part about the limited edition Camaro SS Convertible is that it features a unique, Deep Bordeaux metallic paint that actually changes tint depending upon the light outside. Under low light conditions, it appears to be nearly black, but as it gets brighter outside, the car's deep red undertones begin to pop. "Ghosted" racing stripes help to bring the look home.

Inside, the model gets a variety of leather, Deep Bordeaux, and amber accents to separate it from those average Camaro SS Convertibles that will be hitting the masses next year. It features amber leather seats, black leather side panels, and red accents on the steering wheel and shifter.

Mechanically, the Neiman Marcus Camaro is indistinguishable from the regular Camaro SS Convertible. It features a 6.2-liter V8 engine worth up to 426 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. That powerplant can be paired with either a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual.

Of course, as you'd expect from much of what's in the Dallas-based luxury retailer's Christmas catalog, you'll be paying a substantial premium to get one of the 100 Camaro models being sold. The Neiman edition costs $75,000, a full 2.5 times more than the base Camaro Convertible. Ordering commences at 12 p.m. EDT on October 19 and deliveries will begin next spring. You can place your reservation by phone at (877) 662-6276 or get more information at Neiman's online Christmas Book.

The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book has been published annually since 1926, during which time it's served as an exotic catalog of toys and gifts. The catalog has offered such gifts as submarines, hot air balloons, live animals, and even a $35 million jet. While the catalog is known as an exotic wish list that the richest of the rich can hand-select gifts from, there are also plenty of gifts for under $100. The book features a limited edition auto each year. The flavor of last year was a $105K Jaguar XJL Supercharged.
