Maybe the protests at Occupy Wall St. have merit after all. Nothing demonstrates that the rich are getting richer while the poor are getting poorer quite like the new 2012 Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus Edition. Marked a dear $395,000, an extra $95,000 over the “base” model, all 10 examples of the Neiman Marcus Ferrari FF were called for in just 50 minutes.
The Neiman Marcus FF wears its exclusivity on its interior number plaque and each will come in an elegant Grigio Caldo exterior color and a matching luggage set to compliment the Ferrari’s treated leather interior. To top off the package is an awesome Ferrari Winter Driving Experience that will be held in Aspen, Colorado. Rather than taking the limited edition Neiman Marcus FF’s up the mountain and risk damaging any one of these low volume vehicles, Ferrari will provide the drivers with factory FF’s instead for a memorable arrive-and-drive experience.
Moreover, only recently did we report of a brand new Ferrari FF that burnt to the ground so it is slightly assuring to know that each FF will come with a 7-year maintenance program as well.
Individuals who ordered the Ferrari FF Neiman Marcus also get the added bonus of receiving their cars by spring of 2012. This is much sooner than normal FF buyers, as they must wait as long as two years for their car to be delivered.
Ferrari‘s collaboration with Neiman Marcus has come to fruition with a special edition FF for the Christmas Book. The Neiman Marcus exclusive edition of the 2012 Ferrari FF features a unique exterior color of Grigio Caldo.
Along with a numbered interior plaque for each car, the Ferrari FF also gets a matching luggage set to its exotic leather interior. Each FF will also come with Ferrari’s 7-year maintenance plan and enrollment to the 2012 Ferrari Winter Driving Experience in Aspen, Colorado. Reservations for the limited edition FF begins on October 27th, 2011.
The FF is powered by a 6.3L V12 engine packing 651-hp and 504 lb-ft of torque with a 7-speed, dual-clutch transmission for seamless automatic shifting. Only 10 of these limited edition exotics will be available, each priced at $395,000 based on today’s conversion rates and are scheduled to be delivered in Spring of 2012.

The much-anticipated annual Neiman Marcus “Christmas Book” is now available, and within its pages, you’ll find something a little unexpected – a special edition of the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible.
But only expect to find one under your tree if you’ve been good, because this gift will cost Santa $75,000 (FYI: everyone here at AutoGuide has been super good. Hint, hint).
You’re going to have to start your holiday shopping soon, as only 100 special edition convertibles will be built. The Camaro Convertible offers luxury amenities that were inspired by Neiman Marcus. The Neiman Marcus Edition showcases exclusive Deep Bordeaux exterior color, accented by subtle, “ghosted” rally stripes. Inside, the Special Edition Camaro Convertible comes with exclusive leather appointments, such as amber-colored leather seating surfaces offset by black leather side panels and red stitching. You’ll also find red accents on the center console, steering wheel and shift knob. The Deep Bordeaux color found outside the car carries over on the inside, making an appearance on the dash and door panels.
The Neiman Marcus Camaro Convertible is powered by a 6.2-liter, V8 engine. Pair this with a six-speed manual transmission, and the engine produces 426 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. Change that to the six-speed automatic, and the engine delivers 400 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque.
“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.”
