This latest Maserati model from Naza Italia might just have the longest name yet. Behold, the Maserati Levante S GranSport Ermenegildo Zegna Pelletessuta.
There will only be five units available in Malaysia and is the second Levante launched here since the Maserati Levante Trofeo arrived in June last year.
Born from old-world Italian traditions and nurtured with innovative technology, Pellestessuta is a result of years of research. It’s developed from ingenious use of thin Nappa leather strips, replacing conventional fabric yarn, paired with the traditional weaving methods to create an ultra-luxurious “fabric” that is lightweight, soft and enduring.
Naza Italia says the exclusive Zegna Pelletessuta black interior with Radica wood trims is carefully paired with the Bronzo tri-coat exterior, but customers can also choose to have the Blue Nobile tri-coat colour instead.
The Maserati Levante S GranSport will also have sportier front and rear bumpers, full-LED Matrix adaptive headlamps, and 21-inch Helios rims.
“Like Maserati, the Pelletessuta by Ermenegildo Zegna combines new avantgarde technologies with century-old craftsmanship to create innovation. It comes to life in the Maserati Levante S GranSport to heighten the experience for both driver and passenger, while exquisitely complementing its luxurious, race-inspired performance,” said Naza Corporation, Group CEO, Dato’ Nik Hamdam Nik Hassan.
The Zegna Pelletessuta leather has been applied to the sport seats and the door panels. Occupants inside will also enjoy a spectacular aural atmosphere thanks to the inclusion of the 17-speaker Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound System with 1,280-watts.
A commemorative inscription that reads “Ermenegildo Zegna Pelletessuta” adds even more exclusivity to the model that’s seeming perfect for those with a taste for Italian flair.
The Ermenegildo Zegna Pelletessuta edition is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol pushing out 430 hp and 580 Nm of torque.
Drive is channelled to all four corners via an 8-speed automatic transmission and the rear-biased intelligent Q4 all-wheel drive system. The century sprint takes 5.2 seconds onwards to a top speed of 264 km/h.
The Levante S GranSport also features the brand’s comprehensive range of Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) that bundles Integrated Vehicle Control, Forward Collision Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition, Surround View Camera, Highway Assist System, Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist.
The five units of Maserati Levante S GranSport Ermenegildo Zegna Pelletessuta that are exclusively allocated to Malaysia is priced from RM838,800, inclusive of local duties and taxes.
Every purchase of this Maserati Levant S GranSport comes with a three-year unlimited mileage warranty and a premium service maintenance package over the same duration or up to 60,000 kilometres of travel.
