Autotrader Find: 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS Neiman Marcus Edition


 

Every holiday season, luxury goods retailer Neiman Marcus stuffs mailboxes in high-income ZIP codes with a big print catalog full of extravagant ways to spend (hundreds of) thousands of dollars. The annual catalog has been gluttony at its best since before World War II. The 2020 edition of the Dallas-based retailer’s Fantasy Gift Catalog, for instance, offered a $255,000 travel trailer, a collection of custom-made chapeaus (chapeaus are hats, we had to look it up, too) with display cases for $95,000, and a $345,000 five-night trip to a chalet a snowball’s throw from Denali.

The limited-edition cars that are among the main highlights are usually quick sellers, however. In the past they’ve included everything from James Bond-themed BMW Z3s and Aston Martins to, oddly, a GMC Suburban with a half dozen LCD screens. Hey, those screens were a big deal in 1997.

Most Neiman Marcus cars have been pretty cool, though.

Take the purple Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible that showed up in the 2010 catalog. It arrived a year after Chevy rebooted its Camaro with wedgy, retro-light styling and plenty of V8 (OK, and V6) power options. You’d think it would have been a ho-hum offering since the Camaro had been on the road for a year, but phone orders poured in the minute Neiman-Marcus opened. All 75 scheduled to be built at the plant in Canada were quickly spoken for.

Like other Neiman Marcus cars, the Camaro SS was all about its appearance. In this case, Deep Bordeaux paint was accented with subtle black stripes that ran from the hood to the trunk, plus a matching soft top. A silver windshield surround was echoed with the big 21-inch five-spoke wheels, which also featured a Hot Wheels-like red line around the rims. Inside, the two-tone black and tan leather was a nice match, and of course, the car came optioned with just about every feature available from the factory.

Chevy later reused big wheels on the Synergy Edition Camaro, but the silver windshield frame was a one-off inspired by the original concept car dating back to 2007.

Neiman Marcus cars don’t come up for sale very often, but if you were late to the party back in 2010, a used car dealer north of Salt Lake City has an almost new Camaro SS Convertible Neiman Marcus Edition for just under $50,000. That’s a $25,000 discount compared to what Neiman Marcus charged back in 2010. Find a Chevy Camaro for sale
