Maserati Levante Trofeo V8 Launch Edition to Debut at Geneva Motor Show

By Paul Joseph

Among the array of lavish cars set to be showcased at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland will be the new Maserati Levante Trofeo Launch Edition.

Limited to just 100 units, the new Levante Trofeo will be available in Blu Emozione Matte, as well as in the unique paints Giallo Modenese and Rosso Magma.

The interior features sports seats with a premium full-grain "Pieno Fiore” natural leather, with contrasting stitching and a "Trofeo" logo embroidered on the headrest, available in blue, red or yellow.

On the bumpers, side skirts and specially designed bonnet are exclusive carbon fibre inserts, while the 22" Orione rims can be matte or glossy black finish, and the brake calipers are available in silver, blue, yellow or red.

The Levante Trofeo is also equipped with one of the most powerful engines ever fitted in a Maserati road car - 3.8-litre Twin Turbo V8, calibrated to mate perfectly with the Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system.

In terms of 0-100km/h acceleration, it stops the chronometer at 4.1”, while the maximum speed is close to the 300 km/h mark.

The Levante Trofeo is fitted with the eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox used on all the Levante versions, acclaimed for its versatility and sporty character, along with an Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) system that delivers impressive driving dynamics.

Meanwhile the unmistakable Levante design has reached new levels of sportiness, with a lower splitter, side blades in the front air intakes, side skirt inserts and a rear extractor made of ultralight high-gloss carbon fibre.

At the front, the Levante Trofeo has Full Matrix LED adaptive headlights, a front grille with double vertical bars in Black Piano finish, lower honeycomb mesh fascia, body colour door handles and high-performance brake calipers available in red, blue, black, silver or yellow. 

The 89th edition of the Geneva Motor Show will run from 7-17 March.
