IT’S coming. Maserati’s most anticipated high-powered SUV is on its way, with the 404kW V8 Levante GTS headed for Australia and New Zealand for a 2020 launch, and set to throw down with a walloping 730Nm of torque.
Capable of 0-100km/h in a wickedly quick 4.2 seconds, the GTS is powered by Maserati developed and Ferrari built twin turbo V8, a re-engineered and upgraded version of the engine in the brand’s flagship Quattroporte GTS.
“From the moment the V8 Levante was hinted at, let alone revealed in the USA, we have had clients wishing to put their name down for the ultimate Maserati SUV,” says Glen Sealey, Chief Operating Officer of Maserati Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
“Now that it has been confirmed for our market I have no doubt that the pace of people wishing to own a Levante GTS will only speed up,” he said.
Sitting on a finely tuned chassis, the GTS boasts a new look restyled exterior and exclusive interior, loaded with full premium leather and the latest in technology. Improved driving dynamics and road handling will also enhance the driving experience.
Buyers can also expect updated displays, improved climate systems, sports pedals and a 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, as well as an enhanced Q4 intelligent all wheel drive system and improved ZF automatic gearbox.
With the 2020 Maserati Levante GTS more than a year a way, it is too early for local pricing or specifications to be made available.
