Road Test Review – 2018 Maserati Levante SQ4 – By Carl Malek

It seems that the last few years have been the rise and zenith of the SUV. With low fuel prices and increased demand, even companies that were once known for being purely car focused are now getting in on the SUV craze. Maserati is one of these firms eager to take their own slice of the SUV pie. But can this stylish Italian entry truly succeed in helping Maserati pull a figurative upset against established luxury contenders? Or is it proof that Maserati still has alot to learn before taking on established SUV rivals like Land Rover and Porsche? To …

RM Paris 2018 – 2005 Maserati MC12

The MC12 is such a special hypercar that it rarely hangs out with mere supercars. This example is flawlessly original and expects to collect at least two million Euros when sold by RM Sotheby’s Paris auction in early 2018. The MC12 was not originally intended as a road car at all.  This is what let Maserati get away with such wild wings and bodywork atop a humble Enzo Ferrari basis. MC12 took a different, high-speed aero approach to the longtail design of a midengine exotic, with less drag than the Enzo.  A bit less downforce as well, in theory, and a …

NOVITEC Tridente Launches Maserati Levante Upgrades

This is a seriously sexy custom SUV!  Carbon aero pieces might blend in with this dark bronze paintwork, but are incredibly cool up close.  The nose splitter, side sills and rear spoilers are naked carbon for this stage one mod, but can be painted to suit. A performance ECU reflash takes the twin turbo Levante to 494HP without getting any hands dirty.  Same goes for the air suspension module that allows the truck to lower itself much farther than stock.  Yet another high-tech module brings Levante by Novitec an active exhaust baffle. Capping off this stunner are 22-inch wheels that …

2017 Maserati LEVANTE 4

2017 Maserati LEVANTE at Amelia Island Concours [22 Photos]

The new Levante in Blu Emozione paintwork is gorgeous and quite unique in its design.  We love its serious, toothy nose and sharky hood/grille edge.  Not as sure about the rear three-quarter angle or the slightly narrow-looking rubber. The truck is even more special on the inside, where it is lined with Zegna cashmere, leathers and suedes from roof to floor.  Quite pretty.  Not a huge back seat but decent trunk room versus F-Pace or the Cayenne/Macan. The Levante starts from $74k  with 350HP while the S kicks off from $84k with a tuned V6TT making 424 ponies.  2017 Maserati …

2017 Maserati LEVANTE By Brabus-StarTech

Levante is pretty intense in the flesh.  A macho chin and shark nose up front, but ultra low roof tapering to nothing in the back. But how to take some of Maserati’s trim and style choices up a few big notches? StarTech to the rescue.  This Brabus brand has a full line of Levante parts available for shipping worldwide.  Pick a few or go for the works…! Granted, finding tires for the 23s on this Geneva showtruck might be tricky.  Such is life… in the fastlane.   Scratch that: this truck runs centerlock 21s.  More info below the gallery. 2017 …

  A bevy of fine-driving BMWs to share in this first-ever installment of a ‘daily gallery’ feature post.  We share MANY more photos on social media than often end up in articles here on the web.  The problem with that is the quality of the pics is greatly decreased.  An image that might be 5MB on phone is about 80kb on facebook.com/carrevsdaily or instagram/car_revs_daily On with the show!  100 or so pics from the last two weeks on my iPhone.  Cars we drove only every-so-briefly…. or not at all in some cases!  The Maserati Levante and upgraded Chevy SS have …

2014 Alfieri Maserati Concept Pebble Beach 15

Maserati Embracing Aluminum for Production-Spec Alfieri? By Carl Malek

Reports from the inner confines of Maserati suggest that the Italian luxury car firm is seriously exploring the idea of a production version of the Alfieri! This concept first made its appearance a few years ago at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in what would amount to an ambitious charge into the sports car segment. Designed to take on rivals such as the Jaguar F-Type, Porsche 911, and even the Nissan GT-R, the Alfieri is expected to ride on a more performance oriented version of the modular platform that is also used on the Ghibli. However, the Alfieri would be …
