There Are Only Three of This Limited Edition Maseratis in Malaysia

On their quest to execellence, Maserati elevated their bestselling model by introducing the Levante Trofeo Launch Edition – the fastest variant in the brand’s budding SUV lineup.

A beautiful union of luxury and sports, the Levante Trofeo Launch Edition is an exlcusive version created for the Trofeo, with only 100 units of this new variant produced for the global market.

“Through Naza Italia – Maserati, we are delighted to be able to bring in three units in a palette of three unique colours for Malaysia,” says a smiling Dato’ Nik Hamdam, Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Automotive Group, Naza Corporation Holdings, parent company of Naza Italia – Maserati. These are the Blu Emozione Matte, Giallo Modenese and Rosso Magma with Nerissimo package.

Built For Speed

Mechanically, the launch edition SUV is identical to the Levante Trofeo, which is the first Levante built with a 3.8 litre Twin Turbo V8 engine that provides 590 hp, the most powerful engines ever fitted in a Maserati. This means that it is able to reach 100km/h in only 3.9 seconds and peaks at a top speed of 304 km/h with 34.5 metres of braking distance before coming to a complete stop.

In other words, it is meant to be a speed beast.

To make the most of all that power, the model’s Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system has been recalibrated with a new CORSA driving mode with launch control.

This system is designed to deliver an advanced rear-wheel drive experience to suit the requirements of the Levante Trofeo. In normal driving conditions, the Q4 provides 100% of the engine’s torque to the rear wheels. On slippery or loose road surfaces, the system can alter the front torque split from 0:100% to 50:50% in a matter of 150 milliseconds. Talk about balancing.

The sportiness of the Launch Edition is further enhanced with special multi-spoked 22-inch Orione alloy wheels in matte finishing and high-performance brake calipers in either blue, red or yellow – to match the car’s respective body colour of course. The exclusive carbon fibre inserts on the bumpers, side skirts and specially designed bonnet are added to make its exterior stand out.

The Finer Finishings In Life

On top of the brand’s iconic premium full-grain Pieno Fiore natural leather, the Launch Edition comes with contrasting stitching and a “Trofeo” logo embroidered on the headrest.

Its quintessentially sporty personality is further highlighted by new interior details in “3D Touch” matte carbon fibre trim, paddle shifters, specific instrument cluster graphics, floor mats with metal Trofeo badges and a Maserati clock with a unique dial.

And the cherry on top? The on-board set up is completed by a 1,280-watt, 17-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium surround sound audio system – so you can enjoy a concert hall sound experience whilst behind the wheels.
