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.

Vehicle Overview The Maserati Quattroporte is a full-size four-door luxury sedan. Designed by Pininfarina, the rear-wheel-drive Quattroporte is available as a standard luxury model or as a new sport model, called Quattroporte S.
The Quattroporte competes with the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

A new front grille features prominently spaced bars, and LED daytime running lights are strung along the bottom of the headlamp clusters. Updated rear taillamps also get LED treatments. Redesigned side mirrors, new bumpers and a restyled rear make the Quattroporte look more like the Gran Turismo coupe.
