There will be no actual new models at Maserati’s Geneva Motor Show stand this year. Instead, the automaker’s headline act will be the Levante Trofeo V8 Launch Edition.
Available as a limited edition of 100 units, the Launch Edition marks the debut of the range-topping Levante Trofeo. The vehicle that will go on display in Geneva features a Blu Emozione Matte color, although customers will be able to get it in Giallo Modenese and Rosso Magma paints as well.
The exterior stands out thanks to exclusive carbon fiber inserts on the bumpers and side skirts, as well as the specially designed bonnet. The Levante Trofeo Launch Edition rides on 22-inch Orione rims available in a matte or glossy black finish. The brake calipers can be had in silver, blue, yellow or red.
Inside, the Levante Trofeo Launch Edition offers sports seats upholstered in premium full-grain “Pieno Fiore” natural leather, with contrasting stitching and a “Trofeo” logo embroidered on the headrest matching the exterior color.
Performance-wise, the Levante Trofeo features a Ferrari-built 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 gasoline engine that makes 590 PS (582 hp) and 730 Nm (538 lb-ft) of torque. Hooked to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and the Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, the engine enables the performance SUV to go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds and reach a top speed of almost 300 km/h (186 mph).
Aside from the Levante Trofeo Launch Edition, Maserati’s Geneva stand will also include a Levante S Q4 GranSport and Quattroporte S Q4 GranLusso, featuring interiors in “Pelletessuta,” a special woven Nappa leather made by Ermenegildo Zegna exclusively for Maserati. A Maserati GranTurismo MC will also be on display, with a Grigio Lava Matte exterior and a carbon fiber interior.
Finally, the Italian luxury sports car manufacturer will also unveil “an exciting one-off model” commissioned by one of its customers.
