Italian style combined with German precision: In conjunction with king-sized 22-inch wheels, the ESTESO designer widebody version from NOVITEC, the world-renowned refinement specialist for Italian luxury cars, gives the Maserati Levante even more thrilling looks. To match the visual upgrade, NOVITEC also offers a significant boost in performance for all engine variants, gasoline and diesel. A performance increase to an output of 459 kW / 624 hp and 820 Nm of torque is available for the top-of-the-range Levante Trofeo with twin-turbo eight-cylinder engine. With that upgrade under the hood, the all-wheel-drive car slings itself from rest to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. With a top speed of 309 km/h, this V8 version of the NOVITEC ESTESO is one of the fastest SUVs on the market. Exclusive refinement options for the interior round off the NOVITEC range for the Maserati Levante. The NOVITEC designers caused quite a sensation with their fascinating widebody versions for the sports cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren. The ESTESO widebody version for the current Maserati Levante GranSport, GTS and Trofeo models now joins these ranks. It gives the SUV an extremely striking appearance. All components of this conversion are manufactured from PUR-Rim in OEM quality and thereby meet the highest standards in terms of precise fit, paintability and ease of installation. A width of 2.09 meters: The Levante grows to this impressive dimension after the installation of the sweeping ESTESO fender flares at the front and rear axle. This translates into ten centimeters more than the production car at the front, and twelve centimeters more at the rear axle. The NOVITEC rocker panels give the Levante a more crouched and sleeker visual stance and in addition provide an aerodynamically optimized transition between the widened wheel arches.
The eight-piece kit also includes extensions, which adapt the flares to the front and rear bumper. Customers looking to upgrade their standard Levante or Levante Gran Lusso with the more sportingly styled GranSport front and rear fascias can order them together with the NOVITEC ESTESO kit. In addition, the NOVITEC rear spoiler made from naked carbon is optionally available for the Levante. The likewise optionally available NOVITEC naked-carbon hood scoop gives the thrilling ESTESO design an even sportier touch. Of course, a widebody version also requires a tailor-made tire/wheel combination. The NOVITEC ESTESO alloys with center-lock look and Y-shaped spokes offset in space are mounted on the ESTESO in sizes 10Jx22 and 12Jx22. They come with a choice of finishes, matte black or glossy black with polished surfaces. Shod with tires of size 295/30 R 22 at the front and 335/25 R 22 on the rear axle, they make use of the additional space created by the flares under the wheel arches. The ride-height lowering by about 25 millimeters is the perfect match for these wheels. To this end, the NOVITEC control module is adapted to the standard air suspension of the Italian SUV. The suspension tuning benefits not only the looks, but also the handling as the result of the lowered center of gravity. These modifications make the Levante perfect for more engine power. The NOVITEC engine specialists coax significantly more power and torque from the various gasoline and diesel engines with custom-programmed NOVITEC N-TRONIC plug-and-play tuning modules.
The top-of-the-range model, the Maserati Levante Trofeo with 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, adds 44 horsepower and 90 Nm with NOVITEC tuning. With an output of 459 kW / 624 hp at 7,700 rpm and a peak torque of 820 Nm, already on tap between 2,200 and 3,400 rpm, the refined SUV delivers even greater driving dynamics. The tuned Levante does away with zero to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. The top speed increases to 309 km/h. NOVITEC also boosts the output of the other twin-turbo gasoline engines using the same auxiliary control unit, albeit with specially programmed mapping. The output of the most powerful V6 model, the Levante S, jumps to 363 kW / 494 hp, while peak torque grows to 660 Nm. It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 272 km/h. NOVITEC also offers more power for the popular six-cylinder common-rail turbodiesel models of the SUV. The output of the diesel, rated at 202 kW / 275 hp in standard specification, increases to 237 kW / 322 hp at a low 3,800 rpm, while peak torque grows to 680 Nm at a low 2,200 rpm. As a result, the Levante tuned by NOVITEC sprints from rest to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds. In everyday driving, it fascinates with even more pulling power. NOVITEC tuning to 221 kW / 301 hp and 680 Nm of torque is available for the diesel variant for the Italian market, which produces 184 kW / 250 hp ex-factory. The NOVITEC plug-and-play module for the standard electronic Active Sound System of the exhaust system offers further enhanced driving fun with the diesel models. When “Sport” mode is selected in the cockpit, the control unit generates a more thrilling exhaust note for the V6 turbodiesel. NOVITEC interior design makes a Levante owner’s every wish come true at the highest level of quality with regards to material, color and design of the cockpit.
