Maserati Levante Trofeo displayed at 2018 New York International Auto Show
All the major global auto shows are full of mesmerizing cars and concepts from the various international auto majors. However, the charm of the fascinating Italian cars is ultra special for many auto enthusiasts, which nothing else can surpass. The 2018 New York International Auto Show has been thus, graced by the showcase of the Maserati Levante Trofeo.
The Maserati Levante Trofeo is one of the fastest and most powerful production models ever to have been manufactured by the Italian luxury brand. This is even more significant as the Levante Trofeo is a luxury sporty SUV model and not a sports car.
Even though it is called an SUV, anyone even with very little knowledge about vehicles can figure out that the Maserati Levante Trofeo is certainly no regular family vehicle, and it some sort of a very serious performer. Well, this high-end machine is meant to burn the tarmac with its awesome performance that is delivered by the Ferrari sourced 3.8 liter twin turbocharged engine that is capable of generating a respectable peak power of 590 hp along with a hammering top torque of 730 Nm.
High-end SUV enthusiasts would be so very excited to get their hands on this beautiful beast, but sadly the Maserati Levante Trofeo is an exclusive vehicle for only some select buyers in the U.S and Canada.
The stunning performance SUV comes with jaw-dropping performance figures as well. The Levante Trofeo can run from a standstill position to the speed level of 100 km per hour in just 3.9 seconds, while offering a top speed of around 300 km per hour.
Speaking on the Maserati Levante Trofeo, the Chief Executive Officer at Maserati, Tim Kuniskis said that there’s proof that if you play with the elements, ending up in a storm is the result. In the Trofeo’s case, the designer and engineers in Modena knew that the driveline parameters were already above than what they’d be able to cope with added power and that Maserati had access to the best engines in the world. Thus, they had the challenge of creating the finest luxury SUV in the world, which is also one of the fastest.
The Maserati Levante Trofeo is however, much more than just a power machine, and there are much more to its exclusive appeal. As per Maserati this super special Levante comes with 50:50 weight distribution and a race (Corsa) mode. This means that this amazing performance SUV should be offering exactly that level of performance as it looks like capable of offering. The vehicle also comes with launch control to be able to leash the maddening acceleration. The Italian auto marque has integrated Vehicle Control in this high-end SUV in order to thwart driver mistakes beforehand instead of correcting them after the drivers commit some mistakes. Also the conventional stability control system probably would be too common an equipment to be used in a vehicle so mega-special. Moreover, there is also a dedicated Off-Road mode on the Levante Trofeo.;
