100th Anniversary Maserati Ghibli featured in 2014 Neiman Marcus catalogue

Maserati Ghibli

Every year, luxury retailer Neiman Marcus releases a Christmas catalogue featuring high-end gifts and usually includes a limited edition car. The luxury Neiman Marcus models generally sell out very quickly with previous special editions including the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, McLaren MP4-12C Spider and Ferrari's flagship four-seater, the FF.

However, the car of choice this year pays tribute to the centenary of Italian carmaker Maserati, with a bespoke version of the 100th Anniversary Ghibli model.

Based on the top-of-the-line S Q4 model, the car comes finished in 'Grigio Maratea' grey paint and Maserati has added several unique features, including one-off 20-inch wheels with centennial centre caps and a black border that surrounds the car's grille.

The cabin features premium tan leather, with contrasting black stitching throughout the cabin, and on the trident emblems stitched into the headrests, while piano black trim completes the interior nicely. Finally, the centre console bears a badge denoting the Ghibli's position in the limited production run.

Other premium features on these cars are a 1,200-watt Bowers and Wilkins stereo, heated seats and a heated steering wheel.

Elsewhere, the Neiman Marcus Ghibli retains the running gear of the S Q4 model, which is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine, packing 404bhp and 550Nm of torque; sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 100th Anniversary Ghibli S Q4 will be limited to just 100 units and buyers can expect to pay $95,000 (£58,756) for a slice of this exclusivity.
