Italians have demonstrated a new more powerful competitor Porsche Cayenne Turbo.
As part of the opening of the international auto show in New York, Maserati introduced a new high-performance version of the Levante crossover called Trofeo. Although, judging by the leaks, auto experts expected that the novelty will receive the GTS console.
The main difference between Trofeo is under the hood. The Italians equipped the luxury crossover with a 3.8-liter turbocharged V8 engine from Ferrari – one of the most powerful engines ever installed on Maserati cars. A similar engine is installed in the model Ferrari 488 GTB. On the crossover Maserati, he develops 590 horsepower and 730 Nm of torque. The specific power of the engine is 156 hp. per 1 liter of working volume. The main competitor Porsche Cayenne Turbo is equipped with only 550-horsepower engine.
The performance of the V8 motor is enough to accelerate a heavy vehicle with 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.9 seconds with the intelligent Q4 all-wheel drive system. Maximum speed Levante Trofeo exceeds 300 km / hour.
The chassis of the new version was retuned to work with a higher torque. The manufacturer promises the highest level of high-speed driving without any compromises in the direction of deterioration of comfort.
In the external appearance of the Maserati Levante Trofeo there have also been changes. The radiator grille has become exceptionally black. Carbon moldings are used throughout the body. They are around the air intakes on the front bumper, on the side skirts, in the rear diffuser. The hood will receive ventilation holes. On the rear pillar of the body now flaunts the Trident logo with the inscription Trofeo. The charged version comes with 22-inch wheel disks. From the rear, you can see the tips of the twin branches of the sports exhaust system.
In the car there are sports front seats. On the headrests are also embroidered Trofeo logos. There was a new steering wheel and a dashboard, on the screen of which the above logo is displayed. You can also see the carbon inserts. There is a high-quality surround sound system Bowers & Wilkins with 17 speakers.
In the control system of the car there was a new mode of movement “Corsa” with the function of launch-control. It improves the response of the engine to the accelerator pedal. It provides faster gear changes and underestimates the air suspension of the car.
The Levante Trofeo is equipped with the latest Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC). It helps to prevent the car from stalling, corrects “driver errors” as a traditional electronic stabilization system (ESP).
At the start of sales in the US and Canada will be offered special version Levante Trofeo Launch Edition with a unique color palette of bodies, an exclusive set of 22-inch forged wheels, moldings in black chrome, seats trimmed with genuine leather Pieno Fiore and other accents.
