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.
Best Bets get average or better mpg, have average or better reliability, good crash-test ratings, and our experts' recommendations.

Vehicle Overview The Maserati Quattroporte is a full-size four-door luxury sedan. Designed by Italy's Pininfarina design firm, 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.
New for 2010 For 2010, the Quattroporte carries over with no major changes.
Exterior Maserati styling cues include a long hood and trident badging. The front grille features prominently spaced bars, and LED daytime running lights run along the bottom of the headlamp clusters. The rear taillamps also have LED treatments. Last year's redesigned side mirrors, new bumpers and a restyled rear give the Quattroporte a closer resemblance to Maserati's two-door GranTurismo
