Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The Rapide S, formerly known as just Rapide, is a member of the ultra-luxury-sedan class. These models are typically priced higher than the most expensive cars from mass-market luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz and BMW and include the likes of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur, Porsche Panamera and Maserati Quattroporte. The Rapide S is powered by a V-12 engine and has seating for four. New for 2014 Along with the extra letter at the end of its name the Rapide S features a more powerful V-12 engine that makes 550 horsepower and 457 pounds-feet of torque. The front end is bolder with a large, single aluminum grille that replaces its predecessor's upper and lower grille design, and the rear deck lid features a new lip design for enhanced aerodynamics.
