Among the glitz and glamor, the Infiniti Q60 Neiman Marcus edition shines like a star.
It wouldn’t be the holiday season if Neiman Marcus didn’t offer up yet another extravagant special edition vehicle in its annual holiday catalog. This year, it’s the 2017 Infiniti Q60 – and it’s wearing an eye-searing gold exterior finish. It’s on display now at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show, and even amongst all the new reveals, it’s undoubtedly going to turn some heads.
Based on the high-performance Red Sport model, the Infiniti Q60 Neiman Marcus edition puts down a hearty 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque courtesy of a 3.0-litre biturbo V6. It’s paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and is limited to just 50 examples worldwide. Of course, being the limited edition that it is, it comes in with a hefty $63,000 (all figures USD) price tag – a more than $12,000 premium over the base Red Sport 400, which starts at $51,300.
But don't let that price tag scare you off, along with the exclusive golden Solar Mica paint job, it also features a matching Officine Autodromo white leather weekender bag, a Neiman Marcus-branded satin-and-cashmere indoor car cover, and a letter of authenticity, as if the paint job wasn’t authentic enough.
To further sweeten the pot, Neiman Marcus will donate $1,000 from every car it sells to the Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation, which gives money to arts programs that are local to its stores. Behind the wheel of a brand new Infiniti Q60 doesn’t seem like a bad way to spend the holiday season if you ask me.
