Many of Citibank's MasterCard's are eligible for a World Elite upgrade (Dividend, Cash Returns, Thank You Preferred). The only caveat of course is that you already have to have one and then you have to request the upgrade.
I got my Dividend World MasterCard upgraded to World Elite in December. The only differences that I can see are: credit limit is called Revolving Credit Line (because you can charge in excess of the revolving line); dedicated customer service number, concierge and the best part for me: the silver/holograph MasterCard logo.
There is also the BofA Virgin Atlantic World Elite MasterCard.
