Infiniti's Q60 coupe gets a spot in the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book

Infiniti Q60 Neiman Marcus Limited Edition
Is it that time of year already? The annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Book always includes at least one car among the many expensive items in its pages. Over the years, everything from a Chevrolet Camaro to an Aston Martin Vanquish has appeared in the catalog.

This year, it’s the Infiniti Q60 coupe’s turn. The latest model from Nissan’s luxury brand will be available to order as a very extravagant Christmas gift beginning November 2. Only 50 Q60 Neiman Marcus Limited Edition models will be offered for sale, priced at $63,000 each.

The Neiman Marcus Edition is based on the Q60 Red Sport 400 model, meaning it gets the most powerful version of Infiniti’s new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6. The engine produces 400 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, and is coupled to a seven-speed automatic transmission. Infiniti offers both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive on the Red Sport 400, but didn’t specify whether buyers of the Neiman Marcus edition get the same choice.

The Q60 is a coupe counterpart to the Infiniti Q50 sedan, and replaces a previous-generation model that was originally sold as the Infiniti G37. It’s essentially the Nissan luxury brand’s rival to the BMW 4 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Like the Q50, it features Infiniti’s unusual Direct Adaptive Steering, a steer-by-wire system with no mechanical connection between the steering wheel and the road.

The special edition’s $63,000 price is a big leap over the $51,300 base price of a 2017 Q60 Red Sport 400. Befitting its inflated price, the Neiman Marcus car is painted in a gold hue called Solar Mica, with a Gallery White leather interior and Silver Optic Fiber interior trim. Accessories include a leather weekender bag, a plaque with the car’s VIN number, indoor car cover, and a letter of authenticity. Infiniti will also donate $1,000 to the Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation with each purchase.

If you’re the kind of person who gives out new cars as holiday gifts, look for the Infiniti Q60 Neiman Marcus Limited Edition on page 128 of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.
