The rich restyling was primarily centered around the lower front sash and the back guard and is underlined via carbon fiber configuration signs and 22-inch fashioned aluminum "Orione" wheels - the biggest ever fitted on a Maserati. The Trofeo is the first Levante model outfitted with Full Matrix LED headlights. 

Inside architects have thought of exquisite approaches to make a particular domain inside the Levante Trofeo lodge. The etched game seats highlight a top notch full-grain Pieno Fiore calfskin with a really delicate feel. The normal tanning treatment of the Pieno Fiore calfskin guarantees it builds up its own attributes and a remarkably close to home character after some time. 
The improvement of a V8 Levante began as a skunkworks venture by the Maserati specialized focus in Modena, a long time before the official dispatch of the SUV model in 2016. Without educating the central station in Viale Ciro Menotti 322, the architects assembled a V8 model proposed to test the presentation furthest reaches of the Levante stage. 
That unbranded V8 "donkey" model was a motivation for the top administration to continue with the advancement of a super Levante worked around a Twin Turbo V8 motor. 
The improvement stage formally initiated in summer 2016, after the World Premiere of the Maserati of SUVs. The designers were given a difficult time period and they were quickly engaged, in relationship with their partners in Ferrari, on mating the V8 motor with the Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel Drive framework just as on arriving at the superior focuses of the venture. The tweaking of suspension and gadgets and the consideration of the Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) in the ESP the board were the following stages in the improvement stage. 
In May 2017, Maserati specialists and analyzers were sent far and wide to test the first V8 "donkey" models in differing street and extraordinary climate conditions, extending from the demonstrating grounds of Balocco, Nardò and Barcelona to the twisty, desert or frosty streets of Sierra Nevada, South Africa, Arizona and Lapland.
