100th Anniversary Maserati Ghibli stars in the 2014 Neiman Marcus catalogThu, 09 Oct 2014 10:15:00 EST
Each year, retailer Neiman Marcus releases a Christmas catalog detailing some truly absurd gifts. Chief among them is a Neiman Marcus edition car. Usually from a luxury or exotic manufacturer, the Neiman Marcus models are a limited edition and generally sell out very quickly. Past participants have included the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, McLaren MP4-12C Spider, Ferrari FF and, the most plebian car in recent memory, the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible. For this year's catalog, the Maserati Ghibli is up for purchase.
Not only will it make a great Christmas gift for the ultra wealthy, but this $95,000 Maser also pays tribute to the Italian automaker's 100th anniversary. Based on the top-of-the-line S Q4 model, this Ghibli adds a few unique features, including bespoke 20-inch wheels with centennial center caps and a black border for the grille.
The cabin features premium leather in Cuoiu, which is basically tan. Black contrast stitching can be found throughout the cabin and on the Tridents stitched into the headrests, while bespoke piano black trim rounds out the interior. Finally, the center console bears a badge denoting the Ghibli's unique edition number.
As for optional goodies, the Neiman Marcus Ghibli's most noteworthy feature is its 1,200-watt Bowers and Wilkins stereo. Other goodies include heated seats and a heated steering wheel, although there's no mention any of the larger packages found in the Ghibli's options catalog.
The 100th Anniversary Ghibli S Q4 will be limited to a mere 100 units. Take a look below for the full press release from Maserati and Neiman Marcus.

Gloss Black door handles, a shadowline exterior trim, 6 piston front and 4 piston rear brake calipers in red as well as commemorative centennial center caps further set this vehicle apart. A special Neiman Marcus Edition number badge and 100th anniversary logo are strategically placed on the center console. Black contrast stitching on the seats, dashboard and armrests are also highlighted by a black stitched trident on the headrests. Other features include shift paddles and Bowers & Wilkins premium (1,280 watt) sound system, front and rear parking sensors, heated steering, heated front and rear seats among other luxury options.

First published in 1926 as a 16-page booklet, the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book was initially intended as a Christmas card to the store's best customers. Building on tradition through the years, the book has maintained its personal touch while evolving into a legendary source for alluring and mystical gifts. This year Neiman Marcus will donate a portion of the proceeds from each Fantasy Gift purchase to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation which brings enriching art experiences to youth in communities nationwide.
