Twelve specially-designed Neiman Marcus Edition 2013 McLaren MP4-12C Spiders will be featured in the 2012 Christmas Book. McLaren and Texas-based retail chain Neiman Marcus have come together to have a limited-run edition of the 2013 McLaren MP4-12C Spiders available in its annual Christmas Book as part of the set of “Fantasy Gifts.”
It has several other luxurious offerings such as a Jetlev R200 jet pack ($99,500); a private dinner for 10 cooked by Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud, Richard Rosendale, and Jerome Bocuse ($250,000), and a walk-on role in the Broadway show Annie: The Musical ($30,000). The most expensive gift costs $1.09 million and includes a first-class trip for two to Paris and Geneva to visit the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique, atelier, and watchmaking workshops, together with his and hers watches.
The NM MP4-12C ranks second with a price tag of $354,000, which is $85,750 higher than the MP4-12C Spider’s base price. Buyers get exclusivity first of all. Only 12 samples of the special-edition Neiman Marcus cars will be built. What distinguishes the special edition NM Spider from others are its volcano red paint job, lightweight diamond-cut wheels with gloss black trim, gloss black interior and exterior graphics, contrasting red stitching, and a stainless steel special-edition number badge.
The buyers also get features such as a matching, custom-fit McLaren luggage set; a business-class trip for two with flights to London Heathrow from the continental U.S., two nights and meals at the Coworth Park Hotel near Woking, a tour of McLaren’s Technology Center, and a private dinner with McLaren Chairman Ron Dennis. The Big Brothers Big Sisters charity will receive a donation of $3000 for every purchase.
