In celebration of 10 years of Maserati’s official presence here in Malaysia, local distributor Naza Italia has unveiled the limited edition Levante Vulcano. Just 10 units (out of a total 150 units worldwide) of this exclusive SUV will be made available for the Malaysian market.
The Levante Vulcano is powered by the same direct-injected, twin-turbocharged V6 also found in the Levante S variant, which delivers 430 hp at 5,750 rpm and 580 Nm at 5,000 rpm. Power is sent to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.
On the outside, the exclusive Vulcano is finished in the Matte "Grigio Lava" grey colour, which is further highlighted with the Nerissimo pack which includes: ‘dark look’ rear light clusters, black chrome front grille, gloss black window surrounds, body-coloured door handles, and burnished exhaust tailpipes.
Along the flanks, 21-inch Helios wheels – also with a matte finish – are contrasted by red brake calipers at all four corners. The Vulcano is fitted as standard with 6-piston Brembo brakes at the front.
Inside, the sporty interior is highlighted by Pieno Fiore red leather seats complete with contrasting embroidered Trident logo on the headrest. Other touchpoints of the cabin space – such as the centre console, door trim, paddle shifters, and steering wheel inserts – are meticulously finished in high gloss carbon fibre. To top off the exquisite interior, a chromed aluminium badge just ahead of the gear lever bears the Trident logo, the Vulcano name, and the words "one of 150".
The Vulcano is equipped as standard with a Bowers&Wilkins premium sound system, the soft close door closure system, full-LED Matrix adaptive headlights and the full-suite of Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) – featuring Integrated Vehicle Control, Forward Collision Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition, Surround View Camera, Highway Assist System, Lane Keeping Assist, and Active Blind Spot Assist.
The limited edition Levante Vulcano enters the Malaysian market with a starting price of RM838,800 (inclusive of local taxes and duties, sans insurance). The price includes Maserati’s 3-year unlimited mileage warranty plus a 3 year/ 100,000 km maintenance package, whichever comes first.
