Maserati has announced the new Levante Vulcano. This special edition model will be limited to the European and Asian markets in a production run of 150 units. Prices start at £85,425, with deliveries expected to commence later this year.
The special edition model features an exclusive “Grigio Lava” matte grey paint-job, LED headlights, a set of red six-pot Brembo brakes and soft-close doors. Also included is Maserati’s “Nerissimo” pack, which adds smoked rear lights, a black chrome grille, gloss black window surrounds, body-coloured door handles and dark exhaust tailpipes.
Inside, the Levante Vulcano receives high-gloss carbon fibre trim, carbon fibre paddle shifters, a Bowers & Wilkins sound system, unique “one of 150” badging and a rather dashing heated and ventilated red leather interior with black stitching (or vice-versa).
Both of the Levante’s 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engines are available, offering either 345bhp or 424bhp, with both feeding their power through an eight-speed automatic gearbox to all four wheels. The Italian firm claims 0-62mph is dispatched in 6.0 seconds and 5.2 seconds respectively; top speeds stand at 156mph and 164mph.
The Maserati Levante Vulcano is on sale in the UK now. Prices for the more powerful 424bhp model start at £93,000.
