Neiman Marcus-edition Maserati Ghibli S Q4 could be the ultimate Christmas gift

It may seem a bit early for Christmas shopping, but you’ll need some time to save up (or plan a bank robbery) to afford this gift.

Every year, there is at least one car in the tome of excess that is the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. It’s always a special edition, and often sells out within minutes.

Neiman Marcus has offered everything from a Chevrolet Camaro to an Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, but this year a Maserati Ghibli S Q4 will grace the pages of this rarefied catalog.

The Ghibli will not only celebrate the holiday season, but also Maserati’s 100th anniversary. Hence the unwieldy name: 100th Anniversary Neiman Marcus Limited-Edition Maserati Ghibli S Q4.

So what do you get for all of those words?

The special-edition is distinguished by Grigio Maratea (gray) paint, black grille surround, and red brake calipers. The interior features a 1,280-watt Bowers & Wilkins audio system, seats with the Maserati trident stitched into the headrests, and a plaque confirming the car’s special status.

There are no mechanical changes, so the Neiman Marcus edition still features a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6, connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

With 404 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque on tap, the Ghibli should be able to rival Santa’s sleigh with a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 175 mph.

Christmas shoppers will also get exclusivity. Only 100 units will be sold. Neiman Marcus will begin taking orders October 22, and is asking $95,000 for the Ghibli.

That’s a little under $20,000 over the price of a standard Ghibli S Q4, but not too unreasonable considering how much manufacturers sometimes charge for special editions that only offer exclusivity and snazzy paint for the inflated price.

70mai Smart Dash Cam 1S -- $40, was $50

Rivian R2 vs Hyundai Ioniq 5: Should you wait for the Rivian R2?
Rivian R2

Rivian has taken the wraps off of the Rivian R2, an electric SUV that's similar to the much-loved R1S, but smaller and, crucially, cheaper. But the R2 goes up against some serious competition. The likes of Hyundai have been building solid EVs for some time now -- including the Hyundai Ioniq 5.

The R2 and the Ioniq 5 each make a compelling case for themselves, and they're likely to end up being similarly priced if the Ioniq 5 doesn't get much cheaper and the R2 does end up being sold at $45,000. To be fair, the cars are pretty different -- the R2 is more of an SUV, while the Ioniq 5 is much more crossover-sized. But because of their similar price, you might be deciding between the two. How do they compare? We put the Rivian R2 and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 head-to-head.
Design
The differences between the Rivian R2 and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 are perhaps no more apparent than when it comes to design.

The 6 best remote car starters in 2024
Best car remote starters

While some modern vehicles come standard with remote start features, it's still relatively uncommon. That's a shame because if you live somewhere where cold weather, snow, and ice are frequent concerns, a remote car starter is one of the best auto accessories you can have. If you're not familiar with them, a remote car starter works similarly to a key fob, except it will actually start your car from a distance instead of just unlocking the doors or trunk. That means you can start your car from the warm comfort of your home or office before venturing out. If you live somewhere hot, you can even start your car and let the AC run for a little bit. You'll never enter a freezing cold or scorching hot vehicle again.

The best remote car starters have long ranges, replaceable batteries, and other handy features — but how do you know which is best for you? We’ve compiled a list of the best car starters in a range of prices and features. Keep in mind that while you can install some yourself, some will require a professional.
