At last weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Maserati Levante Trofeo took to the famous hill.
This would be the first dynamic debut of the car following the announcement of the introduction of the Levante V8 range to the UK market.
Over the four day motoring event the eagerly anticipated high performance Maserati Levante Trofeo thrilled the crowds on Goodwood’s famous 1.16 mile hillclimb in the ‘First Glance’ Class.
And it has the ability to thrill for sure. The Levante Trofeo is one of the fastest SUVs ever built. Its 3.8-litre Twin-Turbo V8 engine puts out a staggering 580PS, powering this sizeable SUV all the way to a top speed of 186 mph.
The Levante Trofeo features Maserati’s Integrated Vehicle Control System (IVC) along with a new ‘Corsa’ (Race) driving mode with Launch Control functionality for more responsive driving dynamics and improved performance.
This is so much more than a ‘fast SUV’, it offers a genuine Maserati driving experience.
The Levante V8 range also includes the Trofeo Launch Edition and the GTS. The exclusive Trofeo Launch Edition is limited to only 50 units for Europe, so you’ll need to be quick to get your hands on one.
The Trofeo Launch Edition is available in three unique exterior colours – Blu Emozione matte (as pictured), Giallo Modenese and Rosso Magma – whilst the interior is available in black with red, blue or yellow contrast stitching.
The blue or yellow stitching is exclusive to the Launch Edition, which also features the new matte carbon fibre weave interior trim.
The Maserati Levante GTS equally epitomises the Italian marque’s balance of performance grand tourer and luxury. It shares the same 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 as the Trofeo models but with a slightly lower output of 530PS.
Pricing starts at £104,900 for the Maserati Levante GTS, £124,900 for the Trofeo and £159,900 for the Trofeo Launch Edition and all three are now available to order in the UK.
