The New Maserati Levante Trofeo Hides a Ferrari-Built Engine
After a few teasers, Maserati recently unveiled the Levante Trofeo, which will debut at this week’s New York Auto Show.
Looking to combat Porsche‘s Cayenne Turbo, the Levante Trofeo features a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine built by Ferrari which cranks out 538 lb-ft of torque and 590 horsepower. The powerful engine enables the road monster to go from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and reach speeds in excess of 300 km/h.
To match the monstrous engine is an aggressive exterior led by Full Matrix LED headlights, vertical grid grill, honeycomb mesh air intakes, ventilated hood and carbon fiber accents. While the four-tailpipe sports exhaust system and a body-color diffuser continue the aggressive look found at the front of the car.
The luxury sports aesthetic continues in the interior of the car with sculpted sports seats, matte carbon fiber trim and a unique instrument cluster with V8 badging. Set to enter production this summer, Maserati’s Levante Trofeo is set to receive an exclusive North American launch edition sometime next year.
