Maserati continued the Levante gastronomic series and presented a special crossover version from another chef – Massimiliano Alaimo, once the youngest holder of three Michelin stars. The Levante for the Italian culinary genius is painted in the colors of his corporate logo, equipped with 22-inch wheels, and once again demonstrates the possibilities of the Fuoriserie personalization program.
The first “gastronomic” Maserati Levante was helped by the Italian restaurateur and chef Massimo Bottura. Apparently, the idea was to their liking, so for the next demonstration of the capabilities of the Fuoriserie personalization program, they called in an equally well-known “chef” – Massimiliano Alaimo. In 2002, he became the world’s youngest chef to win three Michelin stars for Le Calandre.
The Levante Trofeo Fuoriserie Edition for Alajmo is finished in glossy black Nero Luce with accent lines in Mistic Gold. This combination echoes the color scheme of Alaimo’s corporate logo. Wheels are 22-inch Orione. The salon is adorned with Pale Terracotta terracotta leather – for the chef this shade is associated with saffron, which with its color and texture “resembles a particle of the sun”.
The special version is based on the most powerful version of Levante – Trofeo. Such a crossover is equipped with a “biturbo-eight” 3.8 with a return of 580 horsepower and 730 Nm of torque, as well as an eight-band automatic ZF. To disperse to “hundreds” Levante Trofeo spends 4.1 seconds. The maximum speed is 300 kilometers per hour.
Using a culinary metaphor, Maserati compares the Fuoriserie program to an empty plate and a multitude of ingredients that customers can mix to taste and end up with something unique. They can choose from 23 body paints, ten liveries, five accent lines, brake calipers in five different colors, three wheel finishes, five colors of expiration, leather in three different shades, as well as monochrome or two-tone seats.
