The brand new Maserati Levante GTS is designed to provide the performance of a modern supercar in the body of a high-end SUV.
The Levante’s Ferrari-built V8 motor can power the car to 100kph from standstill in just 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 290 kph – yet it is large enough to seat a family of five in comfort, with a plush, luxurious interior.
From the outside, this stunning beast is at once sporty yet strong, its subtle curves merely softening the high ride height which suggests safety and strength, features which appeal to the family-minded SUV buyers worldwide.
There is a choice of 11 body colours for the Levante, including two new tri-coat colours – Rosso Potente and deep dark Blu Nobile.
Under the sophisticated bodywork, permanent all wheel drive ensures optimal road-handling and Maserati’s Integrated Vehicle Control actively helps prevent instability, offering enhanced active safety, improved driving dynamics and exciting performance.
Inside, passengers can enjoy standard premium leather or full-grain Pieno Fiore natural leather as an option, and a 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
The Maserati Levante was given its world premiere at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England from July 12-15.
If you’d like to park a Maserati Levante GTS in your garage, it will set you back about US$119,980 in America.
