Neiman Marcus Offers a McLaren Supercar for the Road

10/11/2012
Have you dreamed about piloting your own special-edition street-legal race car? The 2013 Neiman Marcus limited-edition 12C Spider McLaren supercar is one of this year's fantasy gift purchases in the annual holiday catalog unveiled this week by the high-end Neiman Marcus department store based in Dallas, Texas.

The 2012 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book features a selection of fantasy gifts, including the exotic supercar with Formula 1 technology. For browsing and gift buying this year, the store has added an interactive component. A special app can be downloaded from the iTunes app store or NeimanMarcus.com that will allow a reader to take a photo of the catalog cover or a particular fantasy gift page and the photo will open to reveal a video or more detailed information.

Nine fantasy gifts, including the McLaren exotic supercar, are offered this year in conjunction with special charity donations. For a list price of $354,000, the buyer of the special-edition car will fly to England for a VIP dinner with McLaren Chairman Ron Dennis and will be escorted on a tour of the McLaren Technology Center before receiving the supercar.

McLaren's Volcano Red 12C supercar is built on a carbon-fiber composite chassis and is tuned with special performance technology to reach 60 mph in a mere 3.2 seconds. With the sale of each of the 12C Spider cars for sale, Neiman Marcus will donate $3,000 to the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring charity.  If you are interested in finding out more about the McLaren 12C Spider and the catalog, visit NeimanMarcus.com.

McLaren Automotive was started by Bruce McLaren, a competitive race car driver, designer and engineer, who was responsible for creating the McLaren Racing team. Drivers in McLaren-built cars have won more than 20 world championships in races including the 24-hour LeMans race and the 12-hour race at Sebring. McLaren, a New Zealander, died when his car crashed during a 1970 CanAm race in England. He was only 32.
