WHAT: Join Fashion Show Las Vegas this holiday season for “Mob Mondays.” In partnership with the The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, Fashion Show will display the notorious Mob boss John Gotti’s red 1972 Jaguar XKE convertible at the Neiman Marcus plaza for guests, tourists and car aficionados alike.
Starting November 16, the show-stopping convertible can be seen from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Sundays until December 18.

WHO: John Gotti, boss of New York City’s Gambino crime family in the 1980s, was gifted the 1972 Jaguar by veteran capo Greg DePalma. DePalma gave the car to Gotti in hopes of gaining acceptance and building morale with the boss. For their 25th wedding anniversary, Gotti gave the classic convertible to his wife Victoria. The Mob Museum acquired the infamous car from Victoria Gotti in 2011. John Gotti died in prison in 2000 and Greg DePalma died in 2009. More information on Gotti can be found on the Museum’s website, themobmuseum.org.
