Maserati is bringing its V8-powered Levante lineup to the UK this autumn, with the GTS version kicking things off at £104,900 ($132,426) and the Trofeo costing £124,900 ($157,674). There will also be a Launch Edition for the flagship Trofeo model, retailing for £159,900 ($201,858).
The latter is limited to only 50 units for all of Europe, and can be ordered with one of three unique exterior colors – Blue Emozione matte, Giallo Modenese and Rosso Magma.
Inside, the Trofeo Launch Edition boasts natural ‘Pieno Fiore’ leather sport seats, available in black with red, blue or yellow contrast stitching. The blue or yellow stitching by the way is exclusive to this version of the Levante, which also comes with a new matte carbon fiber weave trim.
Powering the Levante Trofeo is a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine, producing 582 HP (590 PS) at 6,250 rpm and 538 lb-ft (730 Nm) of torque. Everything is then sent down to the road through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and the automaker’s Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system.
In a straight line, you’ll be hitting 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.1 seconds, before maxing out at a very impressive 186 mph (300 km/h).
Aesthetically, you get a new aluminum hood with dual vents, 21-inch alloy wheels, a carbon fiber front splitter, front grille blades, side skirts and rear valance, plus Trofeo badging.
Maserati’s Levante Trofeo will make its dynamic UK public debut while tackling the famous Goodwood hill-climb event at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, early next month.
As for the Levante GTS, it utilizes the same engine as the previously-mentioned version, albeit with less power at 530 horses.
