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 GT-R is racetrack-bred and runs zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, according to Nissan, joining the likes of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Unlike that car, the GT-R has all-wheel drive.
New for 2010 The GT-R gains five horsepower for 2010. There's new programming for the clutch and electronic stability system that's designed to improve drivability and acceleration, as well as a retuned suspension and more-rigid brake lines. Also new are the standard seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags.
Exterior Unlikely to be mistaken for any other car, the audacious-looking GT-R is shaped to cheat the wind, route cooling air where it's needed and maintain aerodynamic downforce, front and rear.
Steel, aluminum and carbon fiber construction to save weight and help handling balance
Base model's wheels get new finish
New white paint color added for 2010
Interior The GT-R has the driver-oriented cockpit you'd expect of a performance car, with a large tachometer front and center. The seats hug their occupants tightly — a necessity on the track — but the floor space is uncommonly unrestrictive. Technically a four-seater, the GT-R could handle two adults in front and two kids in back. Nissan says the trunk can accommodate two golf bags or suitcases.

Four-way power-adjustable front passenger seat
