Larte Design Splashes Maserati Levante With Carbon Fiber Elements

| |

This custom tuning package consists of about eight extra carbon fiber elements, all of them meant to add a touch of sportiness to one of the world's most dynamic SUVs.

A close look at the front fascia reveals that the car is wearing left and right front bumper overlays, left and right stick-on lip extensions, and a central overlay. Move alongside the car and you'll also notice the carbon fiber mirror casings.

As for the rear end, you've got the carbon fiber trunk lid spoiler, and the rear diffuser and that's pretty much it.

All of these carbon fiber accents are just a prequel to a more extensive package that Larte plans on launching in the near future.

The new package will be a full body kit, with replacements for the bumpers, tailpipes and so on. It will even have fender extensions, so stay tuned for that one if you like overly aggressive SUVs - it should be comparable to both Mansory's as well as Novitec's take on the Levante.

As for performance, the best you can get out of a Levante these days without any modifications, is hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds and maxing out at 264 km/h (164 mph), all with the help of a 430 PS (424 HP) 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine.
