I am also interested in seeing the entire price sheet for the base Ghibli, with the list of standard features and cost of options. It would answer some questions about the S Q4's pricing as well. If you can upload the files to a place like SendSpace.com and share a link, that would be greatly appreciated.

This is great, thanks! I'm confused though? What happened to the Sport 19", 20", 21" packages listed in the ordering guide? Will these be options available after the initial roll out?

Thanks for sharing. A couple of observations:

1. The Carbon Fiber trim for the base model is double the price as for the S Q4 model.
2. There are few a la cart options available (most are bundled in more expensive packages).
3. The base model's base price is actually almost $67k, or 2k more than than $65k that Maserati has been pitching. If you bought the base model with zero options at MSRP, it would still run about $73k OTD (in states like Texas with high sales tax). Adding just a few options gets you to $80k+ very quickly (or $15k more than the advertised $65k).

1) price will vary for options on the 2 models

2) the ala carte options are for people who want 1 option but dont want to pay for a full package

3) its still cheap... you can build these up to well over $100k and plenty of people have done that so far.

I believe the reason there are no 19/20/21 sports packages is because they are supposed to come with contrast stitching, which is not currently available at initial launch.

Some of the option prices cost more on the base than the S Q4 for the reason that they are an upgrade to an upgrade. For example, the S Q4 comes with Radica wood trim, which is itself an upgrade for the base model. The carbon fiber trim is an upgrade to the Radica wood trim, so the cost would be higher if the car did not have any Radica wood trim to begin with.

The price of the car does not include freight, which is a common and industry-wide way of quoting MSRP. Prices are always +TTF, which is Tax, Tags, and Freight. I also believe you can't really add taxes on top of the car and say that the base car is going to be $80k, as if somehow Maserati engaged in deceptive advertising. Maserati does not have any control over taxes, nor is the taxes uniformly applied for all buyers. Maserati charges $65.7k for the car, plus $1250 for shipping it to you. The rest of it is out of their hands. Some states have very low taxes, some have very high taxes. Some states like mine (VA), charges an annual property tax for cars on top of the sales tax we pay. But these taxes are charged for all cars, not just Maserati. So whether I buy a $85k Maserati, or $85K BMW, the taxes are the same. This is the cost of owning an $85k car in VA in general, and not specific to any one car.

The sport package and the wheels are seperate options.

You can get the sport package with the base wheel, or you can add the 19s, 20s or 21s

Nova, I don't disagree with you, and I wasn't trying to imply that Maserati was deceptive, I was simply noting my observation that if you want to buy a base Ghibli with options that are standard for many competitors, you should be prepared to pay significantly more than $65k. This car is still on the top of my list, but its a little less appealing now that I have the price list (probably just sticker shock that will hopefully fade! :))

i dont understand how you can be sticker shocked or how the car can be less appealing because its a $72k car with navi instead of $65k. $65-$72k is a small difference when we are talking about this kind of money, especially when considering a Maserati.

in the end it will still be a better choice then Audi, BMW or Benz.
