Alfardan Motors Launches The All-New Maserati Levante SUV With V8 Engine In The GTS And Trofeo Trims

Alfardan Motors, the official importer of Maserati in the Sultanate, launched the all-new Maserati V8 Levante in the GTS and Trofeo trims in a celebration held at Al Bustan Palace, A Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

The new Levante models, both equipped with V8 engines that generate exceptional levels of power and acceleration, were launched amidst Maserati aficionados, enthusiasts and press members in attendance.

Both the Levante GTS and the Levante Trofeo are equipped with one of the most powerful engines ever fitted in a Maserati.

The 3.8-litre Twin Turbo V8 engine in Levante GTS is a re-engineered, upgraded version of the power unit fitted in the flagship Quattroporte GTS, delivering 550hp at 6,250 rpm and 730 Nm peak torque at 2,500-5,000 rpm.

Offering similar features, the 3.8-litre V8 power unit that lies under the bonnet of super-sport Levante Trofeo delivers a horsepower of 590.

Mohamed El Zawawy, General Manager of Alfardan Motors said, “We are delighted to launch the Levante GTS and the Levante Trofeo. Both those distinct models bring the “Gran Turismo” philosophy in the SUV segment in its purest form.”

Speaking of the Levante GTS, El Zawawy said, “While every Maserati maintains a balance between extraordinary performance and unparallel luxury, the Levante GTS sets a new benchmark. The outstanding 550hp V8 SUV is engineered and meticulously tuned for superior performance, long-distance comfort and driving pleasure—the enduring principles of Maserati’s grand-touring philosophy. Refined in style and composure, the Levante GTS is the next evolution of the Maserati SUV.”

He added, “Sporting interior, luxury, power and best-in-class performance are blended together in the Levante V8 Trofeo, the new Maserati SUV. The distinctive Levante design has reached new levels of sportiness in this top of the line Trofeo. Yet, the sporting interior of the Levante Trofeo offers all the comfort of a prestigious SUV.”

Maserati enthusiasts and members of the press were given an opportunity to test drive the dynamic Levante GTS and the Levante Trofeo at the event.

A passionate Maserati aficionado who drove the new models said, “Thanks to its new V8 engine, both the GTS and the Trofeo stand tall and offer outstanding performance. I am thoroughly impressed with the sound and sensation of the 3.8-litre V8 models. The GTS takes grand touring to new heights in terms of power and comfort, while the performance of the Trofeo is outstanding, with a truly remarkable 590hp and a peak torque of 730 Nm.”
