Powerful Maseratis head Down Under

Maserati’s most powerful collection of models has arrived Down Under with the sporty and luxurious Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo joining the Levante Trofeo.

Each Trofeo is powered by a 3.8-litre, V8 Twin Turbo engine with power output of 433kW at 6,750rpm and peak torque of 730Nm. 

The engine is built at the Ferrari plant at Maranello to Maserati’s specifications, and has been modified and developed to deliver equally impressive performances on the rear-drive sedans. 

It will be the last time this engine will be used in a Maserati, making the Trofeos future classics. 

Glen Sealey, chief operating officer of Maserati Australia and New Zealand, says: “We’re delighted to formally announce the arrival of this triumvirate of Trofeos.

“We call it the ‘Art of Fast’ and these vehicles are the start of a product onslaught from Maserati over the coming months as the brand enters a new era.” 

The Ghibli and Quattroporte models are Maserati’s fastest sedans with a top speed of 326kph, while the Levante can clock up to 304kph.

All three feature an integrated vehicle control (IVC) system, with a specific setup to enhance driving dynamics and improve active safety.

The Trofeo collection is characterised by a front grille with twin vertical bars in Black Piano finish, and carbon fibre on the front air duct trims and rear extractor. 

Red details also appear on the bottom profiles of the side air vents and there is a lightning bolt on the Trident badge on the C-pillars. 

At the rear of the car, the light clusters have been restyled into a boomerang-like profile inspired by the 3200 GT and the Alfieri concept car.

The Ghibli and Quattroporte are fitted with 21-inch aluminium Orione wheels, and the Levante gets 22-inch Orione wheels. 
On the inside of the collection, a new on-board panel displays an exclusive interface at switch-on and interior upholstery is in full-grain Pieno Fiore natural leather.

New technologies also appear in the Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA), a multimedia screen with upgraded resolution and larger size that measures 10.1 inches in the Ghibli and Quattroporte.

The Levante retains the 8.4-inch display but with improved resolution and graphics.
