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 GT-R is racetrack-bred and runs zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, according to Nissan, rivaling the likes of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Unlike that car, the GT-R has all-wheel drive.
New for 2011 Nissan has eliminated the base GT-R, leaving the GT-R Premium as the only model for 2011. Automatic on/off headlights, speed-sensitive windshield wipers, a USB iPod interface and streaming audio via Bluetooth are new standard features. The navigation system gains XM traffic and weather capability.
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. Aficionados will notice that the wheel center caps are slightly darker this year, and rear cooling ducts have been added. Exterior features include:
Steel, aluminum and carbon fiber construction to save weight and help handling balance
"Super wide beam" headlights
Standard 20-inch wheels
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. Interior features include:
Eight-way power-adjustable driver seat
Four-way power-adjustable front passenger seat
Multifunction display records data such as mileage, cornering force and acceleration
Steering-column paddles for manual shifting
Under the Hood The twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 produces 485 horsepower and 434 pounds-feet of torque. and the transmission control module has been reprogrammed to provide better drivability and acceleration. Mechanical features include:
485-hp, 3.8-liter V-6
Rear-mounted six-speed transmission with auto and manual modes
Revised suspension for 2011 for more ride comfort
Rear-biased all-wheel drive
Summer performance tires standard; all-season tires a no-cost option
Safety Standard safety equipment includes:
Front-seat side-impact airbags
Side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers
Antilock disc brakes
Electronic stability system
