Neiman Marcus Camaro Convertibles Sold Out in 3 Minutes

When the limited run of the 2010 Jaguar XJ included in the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book sold out in just four hours last year, we thought that was fast. We take that back, as yesterday customers claimed all 100 of the special edition 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertibles prepared exclusively for the same catalog in just three minutes.

Customers claimed their Neiman Marcus Edition cars via a special telephone reservation process, a few hours after the car appeared on NBC's Today Show. The new owners will take delivery of their special edition cars in the spring of 2011, shortly after the 2011 Chevy Camaro arrives at dealers.

The Neiman Marcus Edition is finished in an exclusive Deep Bordeaux exterior color, accented by subtle, "ghosted" rally stripes. The exterior color is complemented by a matching fabric top and windshield frame finished in matte silver, both also exclusive to the Neiman Marcus edition.  

All units will be SS models with a 6.2-liter V8 engine. The 100 future owners chose between the 426 hp 6-speed manual or 400 hp 6-speed automatic transmission. Safety wise, there are front- and side-impact airbags, and rear parking assist with ultrasonic sensors.  

Brembo high-performance disc brakes, StabiliTrak electronic stability control system and Pirelli P-Zero ultra-high performance tires are also included on the spec list. The Pirellis ride on exclusive 21-inch five-spoke wheels with Brilliant Red detailing. Glowing LED Halo-Ring Headlamps add a distinctive look.

Inside, one can stay connected with Bluetooth wireless phone and USB interface. OnStar turn-by-turn navigation and safety features accompany the Boston Acoustics premium seven-speaker, 245-watt sound system. Interior highlights include Amber leather with Brilliant Red accents on the center console, steering wheel, and shift knob.

Each Neiman Marcus Camaro Convertible retailed for $75,000.
