Well-heeled gift-givers looking to surprise that someone special this holiday season can turn to Neiman Marcus, which just released its 2023 Fantasy Gift list. Now in its 64th year, the annual Fantasy Gifts list includes exclusive experiences and products aimed at “discerning customers in pursuit of the extraordinary,” and this year, it includes a one-of-one Cadillac Celestiq Carmen electric vehicle, commissioned by Cadillac. The price tag for the custom EV? A bit under seven figures at $975,000.
This isn’t the first time Cadillac has teamed up with Neiman Marcus. The two brands previously offered a limited run of 101 special-edition Cadillac XLRs for the 2003 Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog, but now, the new Cadillac Celestiq Carmen electric vehicle offered for 2023 ups the exclusivity considerably as a one-off custom vehicle.
Specific details on the new custom Cadillac Celestiq were not provided, but it’s expected to include several high-definition displays in the cabin, the GM Super Cruise hands-free driver assistance system, a SmartGlass panoramic roof, and a four-zone microclimate system. The Cadillac Celestiq starts at $340,000 before options and customization.
The owner will also be given a two-day behind-the-scenes experience at the Cadillac House design studio at the General Motors Global Technical Center campus, in Warren, Michigan, providing an in-depth look at how the vehicle is specially tailored to each owner’s unique tastes, suggesting that the new owner will have a good deal of freedom in outfitting their new Celestiq as they see fit. The experience includes accommodations at a luxury hotel and meals at award-winning Detroit restaurants.
The $975,000 price tag includes a $25,000 donation for the Detroit Opera House.
Additional items on the Neiman Marcus 2023 Fantasy Gifts list include an opportunity for Walt Disney Animation Studios to transform you into an animated character, an Olympic Games experience in Paris, a yachting treasure hunt, and a chance to participate in an American Ballet Theater performance.
