Maserati Le­vante GTS

Car India - - BULLETIN -

Maserati waited for the Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed to show off their new 550-PS su­per­sport util­ity ve­hi­cle, the V8-pow­ered Le­vante GTS.

The sporti­est and fastest Le­vante is also the only one in its line-up with a V8. As with the V6 duo, the Le­vante gets a more pow­er­ful state of tune for its Fer­rari-built eight-cylin­der beast as well, mak­ing 20 PS more than the unit in the Qu­at­tro­porte GTS. Here it’s paired to an eight-speed ZF au­to­matic trans­mis­sion and, now, the Q4 all-wheel-drive sys­tem. It pro­duces a Porsche Cayenne Turbo-match­ing 550 PS with a peak 730 Nm of torque com­ing in from 2,500 rpm. Weigh­ing in at 2,145 kg, it boasts of a power-to-weight ra­tio of 256 PS/tonne, al­low­ing a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 sec­onds and a top speed of 292 km/h.

Ex­pect the Le­vante GTS to ar­rive in In­dia later this year or early next year, priced at around Rs 2.3 crore (ex-show­room).
