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 GranTurismo is a four-seat grand touring coupe with V-8 power. A high-performance S version is available, as is a convertible version. The GranTurismo competes with the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Jaguar XKR and Mercedes-Benz CL550.
New for 2011 There are no significant changes for 2011.
Exterior Maserati teamed with Italian design company Pininfarina to style the GranTurismo. The car features a wide oval grille, a long nose and a short rear. It sits low to the ground and has a very sleek profile overall. Exterior features include:
19-inch wheels; 20-inch wheels available
Three air inlets behind front fender
Rear LED taillights
Grille features vertical concave slats
Chrome exhaust tailpipes
Adaptive bi-xenon headlights
Optional colored brake calipers
Interior Maserati cloaks the interior in high-quality leather and wood and puts chrome accents on the dashboard. There's seating for four people; Maserati says two adults fit comfortably in the backseat. Interior features include:
Navigation system with 7-inch screen features a hard drive for storing music
Rear parking sensors standard; front sensors optional
Numerous interior material options, including Alcantara simulated-suede headliner and wood trim
Under the Hood Maserati says the GranTurismo coupe can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in about 5 seconds and reach a top speed of 177 mph. Mechanical features include:
405-horsepower, 4.2-liter V-8 with 339 pounds-feet of torque
Six-speed automatic transmission with four operating modes and paddle shifters
Skyhook adaptive suspension automatically adjusts shock-absorber firmness for different driving and road conditions
Safety Safety features include:
Electronic stability system
Front and side-impact airbags
GranTurismo S If the regular GranTurismo isn't exotic or fast enough for you, the GranTurismo S serves as a high-performance version featuring more power, bigger brakes and exterior modifications to increase performance. Other details include:
433-hp, 4.7-liter V-8 with 361 pounds-feet of torque
Six-speed automatic transmission differs from base GranTurismo's in a way meant to provide better daily drivability
Side and rear-lip spoilers add balance through aerodynamics
20-inch wheels feature seven-spoke design
Interior upholstered in leather and Alcantara Back to top
GranTurismo Convertible Known in most other markets as the Maserati GranCabrio, the GranTurismo convertible uses the 433-hp V-8 from the GranTurismo S, but because of the additional weight of a convertible structure, its zero-to-60-mph acceleration drops slightly to 5.3 seconds. Its top speed is 176 mph. Other details include:
Power-folding soft-top works in 24 seconds
Trunk volume uncompromised whether the top is up or down
