Start Your Holiday Shopping: Saks Fifth Avenue Cadillac ELR, Neiman Marcus Aston Martin Vanquish Volante
'Tis the season to shop for beautiful, spectacularly-priced special edition cars. Those looking to mix their love of style and automobiles will have their choice between a Saks Fifth Avenue special edition Cadillac ELR and an ultra-exclusive Neiman Marcus 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante. Cadillac announced Friday that it is offering 100 special ELR cars featuring an exclusive White Diamond exterior paint. The ELR will feature either a Jet Back or Light Cashmere interior, depending on the buyer's preference. Buyers will be able to enjoy the ELR's efficient plug-in hybrid powertrain, set up similar to the Chevrolet Volt. The ELR, however, comes with premium interior materials including leather, wood, suede, and chrome. Those who get their hands on a special edition Saks Fifth Avenue ELR will also receive a complementary 240-volt charging station, valued at $3,000. They will also be able to take advantage of a special concierge service. All in all, buyers can expect to pay $89,500 for their special edition ELR. Neiman Marcus is giving Saks a run for its money. Behold the extremely-limited edition Neiman Marcus 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante. Only ten of them will be produced, each one handbuilt in Gaydon, England. This special edition model features a Seychelles Blue exterior more beautiful than the ocean. A first for Aston Martin, the Vanquish Volante is made out of a 100 carbon fiber shell, contributing to its lightweight feel. Buyers will enjoy the car's 6.0-liter V-12 engine that provides 565 horsepower and a top speed of 180 mph. For each purchase, Neiman Marcus will donate $3,000 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation that supports art education among the youth. The total cost of the car, you ask? Only $344,500...
