The closest factor to a Ferrari SUV proper now is the Maserati Levante Trofeo with its twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 motor developed by the Prancing Horse. It helps make 580 horsepower and 538 pound-feet (730 Newton-meters) of torque, which really should be a lot of Maranello punch for most people today, but some individuals will normally want far more. This is exactly where the tuners at Novitec occur into perform as they’ve fiddled with Ferrari’s V8 to unlock a mighty 616 hp and 605 lb-ft (820 Nm).
They did far more than just update the motor as Maserati’s sole SUV (for the time being) went to the fitness center to set on some muscles. It’s now two.09 meters (eighty two.two inches) broad soon after Novitec set up its fender flares both at the entrance and rear to boost the width of the car by far more than ten cm entrance & twelve cm rear. The full physique kit encompasses 8 pieces and some of them can be experienced in bare carbon fiber, which include the hood scoop and rear spoiler to make the high-using Maserati a really eye-grabbing SUV.
Novitec also designed some changes to the air suspension set up by reducing the trip top by 25 millimeters to lend the Levante a far more intense stance whilst improving managing many thanks to a a little reduced heart of gravity. You’ve probably seen by now those are not the stock wheels as the tuner has swapped them out to make place for a 22-inch set in “centerlock appear.”
As far as functionality is worried, Novitec says the added oomph around the stock Trofeo model lets the Levante Esteso to strike sixty two mph (one hundred km/h) from a standstill in 3.8 seconds and major out at 192 mph (309 km/h) or a little far more than the world’s speediest output SUV, the a hundred ninety-mph Bentley Bentayga Pace.
It’s worthy of mentioning that spy photographs have disclosed the Levante Trofeo is due to get an update that will convey a bigger 4.-liter V8 designed by Maserati.
