Scheduled to be launched towards the end of 2019, the Maserati Levante Trofeo will be powered by 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo motor that develops 582bhp and 730Nm.
Since its launch in India early last year, the Maserati Levante has been on sale with just a single engine variant. The Italian brand had taken the wraps off the Levante Trofeo in March 2018 at the New York Auto Show, and now it is all set to make its way to India towards the end of 2019. Interestingly, India will be one of the first right-hand drive markets to receive the Trofeo. But that’s not just the only thing that makes it special.
The Levante Trofeo is the most powerful production Maserati ever. Developing 582bhp and 730Nm from a 3.8-litre V8 twin-turbo, the Levante Trofeo can do the 0-100km/h dash in just 3.9 seconds and record a top speed of 300km/h. Just like all other Maserati petrol offerings, this one too borrows its motor from Ferrari. All the power that it makes is sent to all four wheels with the help of Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System.
The performance aspirations of the Levante Trofeo are made clear thanks to the addition of carbon fibre in the lower splitter, the side blades in the front air intakes, side skirts, and the redesigned rear bumper. The hood has been redesigned and has two aggressive air intakes for improved cylinder head cooling. Inside, the car also gets sculpted sports seats with ‘Pieno Fiore’ natural leather with Trofeo insignia etched on the head rests. This seat is available in three colours – red, tan and black.
Expect the Maserati Levante Trofeo to be priced at about Rs 2.5 crore when it gets launched in India.
