'Price Is Right' Contestants to Bid on 'Dream Cars'

2014PorscheCayenne

OK, playing "The Price is Right" rules, as close as you can without going over: How much would you expect to pay for a Porsche Cayenne? How about a Range Rover Sport SE? A Maserati Quattroporte S Q4, Tesla Model S or Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster? All next week contestants on the iconic game show will be making bids on that half-million-dollar quintet of luxury vehicles in hopes of hearing Bob Barker … er … we mean, Drew Carey, announce that they've won "A NEW CARRR!!!"

What Car Would You Buy if You Won Mega Millions?

"Dream Car Week" runs Oct. 13-17 on the four-decade-old-plus shopping-themed game show that asks contestants to wager on the retail price of merchandise in hopes of winning extravagant prizes presented by comely models. The show was famously hosted by Barker from its inception until 2007, when bespectacled comedian and sitcom star Carey succeeded him. The show runs 11 a.m. to noon Eastern Standard Time weekdays on CBS.

2014 Maserati Ghibli Review

2014MaseratiGhibli

"A stylish alternative to established luxury sedans, the 2014 Maserati Ghibli relies on its brand cachet to try to make up for obvious parts-sharing and a lack of technology, and it's only mildly successful in doing so," said Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman. Check out Bragman's review for more.

Fiat's Italian Brands Plan Massive Assault

Maserati_Levante

The first name in the new Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is, of course, Fiat, but that doesn't mean there will be much news for the Italian brand in the U.S. over the next five years.

Dodge Means Performance: SRT Comes Back to the Fold

Only a couple of new Fiat models are coming to our market by 2018, but combined with the relaunch of the Alfa Romeo badge and the expansion of Maserati in the U.S., there will be some interesting new vehicles to see down at the Italian end of your FCA showroom:

Maserati Shows Alfieri Concept, Makes Us Excited for Next GranTurismo

Maseraticoncept500

The 2014 Geneva International Motor Show is in full swing, and one of the highlights is the sexy concept coupe from Maserati, the Alfieri. Built on the occasion of Maserati's 100th anniversary, it's meant to point the direction of future Maserati sports cars. The company's only coupe is currently the GranTurismo, which is starting to get a little long in the tooth, and always has been considered more of a boulevardier than a sports car.

Alfa Romeo Plans Arrival of 4C for June

Alfa_4C_MFR

The Alfa Romeo 4C has become an auto-industry punch line, a car whose ETA is in perpetual delay — sort of like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's backup-camera mandate. It looks like Alfa will beat NHTSA to the punch: The Detroit News reports that Maserati dealerships will sell the lightweight sports car in June 2014.

Alfa Romeo 4C: First Look

We'll believe it when we see it. Fiat first showed a 4C concept at the 2011 Geneva International Motor Show. A production version bowed two years later with U.S. sales promised sometime in 2013. That didn't happen, but at least this latest announcement keeps with the delay Fiat issued in September 2013. High-performing Fiat dealerships — some of which are standalone dealers, some of which are incorporated into Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram showrooms — will get the car, too, though exact timing remains elusive. Maserati and Alfa Romeo are two subsidiaries of the recently merged Fiat Chrysler Automobile.

2014 Maserati Ghibli Photo Gallery (28 Photos)

Ghibli_500

Hot off its TV debut in a Super Bowl XLVIII commercial, we got to take a closer look at Maserati's gorgeous, yet moderately priced new sedan at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. Aimed at the BMW 5 Series, the new 2014 Ghibli starts at $66,900, a relative bargain for the premium brand. 

More 2014 Chicago Auto Show Coverage

The Ghibli is Maserati's first midsize four-door luxury sport sedan. Power comes from a Ferrari-sourced twin-turbo V-6 good for "over 400 horsepower," Maserati said in a statement. Check out the gallery for more photos; Cars.com photos by Evan Sears.
