Maserati Levante Trofeo confirmed for SA

Launched earlier this year, the Maserati Levante Trofeo will make its way to South Africa in 2020.

Setting itself apart from the standard model, the Trofeo features a range of high-gloss carbon fibre garnishings on the exterior including the front lower splitter, blades in the front air intakes, the side skirt inserts and the rear extractor. Customers can opt for more carbon fibre additions to be made when placing their order. At all four corners, the fast Levante comes fitted with 22-inch forged aluminium “Orione” wheels, finished in either polished or matte variants.

While the designers mainly focused on the restyling of the lower front fascia and the rear bumper, the interior also sees some new standards applied. Customers can expect Maserati’s exclusive Pieno Fiore Italian leather as standard while the infotainment system now controls a 1 280 Watt, 17-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium surround-sound audio system. “Aside from being one of the most powerful Maserati models ever, the Levante Trofeo’s sporting interior offers all the comfort of a prestigious SUV. It is built to the enduring principles of a Maserati grand touring vehicle,” Rens Rademeyer, Dealer Principal, Maserati Johannesburg.

Under the bonnet, now with heat extractors, the 3.8-litre Twin Turbo V8 motor comes with a high-gloss carbon fibre engine cover and sports the Maserati Trident and a V8 inscription while the cylinder heads and intake manifolds are painted red. The motor which produces 433 kW can propel the Levante Trofeo from 0 -100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds and to a top speed of 304 km/h. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox which rewards spirited driving and features launch control when selecting the added Corsa driving mode. “Interest in the Levante Trofeo has already been overwhelming. The first unit, a specially numbered Launch Edition in Blu Emozione Matte, will arrive in the first quarter of 2020, with bespoke units following soon thereafter,” concluded Rens Rademeyer, Dealer Principal, Maserati Johannesburg.
