Maserati Levante S GranSport Gets Zegna Interior – RM839k
This Levante S can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h faster than you can say ‘Pelletessuta’
The Maserati Levante S is already an exceptional vehicle but those who want to stand out from the crowd can get the new Levante S GranSport with Ermenegildo Zegna interior. Limited to just five units in Malaysia, the SUV features a woven leather textile dubbed Pelletessuta.
What’s so special about it, you ask? Well, Pelletessuta is made of thin Nappa leather strips woven using a traditional method. The result is a lightweight and elastic “fabric” that is perfect for upholstery on seats, door panels and dashboard fascia. According to Maserati, five metres of nappa leather produce one metre of Pelletessuta.
This limited edition offering can be had in two tri-coat colour options, namely Bronzo or Nubile Blue, with 21-inch polished Helios wheels and black calipers. The distinctive upholstery is accentuated by an exclusive Radica wood trim with the “Ermenegildo Zegna PELLETESSUTA” wording on the centre console.
As per the standard Levante S GranSport, full body kit, LED Matrix adaptive headlights, sport seats, Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system and a full suite of ADAS are equipped standard on this version. Power comes from a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that makes 430 hp and 580 Nm of torque. With an eight-speed automatic transmission and AWD, it needs just 5.2 seconds to complete the century sprint.
Pricing for the Levante S GranSport Zegna Pelletessuta starts at RM838,800, including a three-year unlimited mileage standard warranty and a free maintenance programme for three years or 60,000 km.
Naza Italia-Maserati announced today that it has brought in a special edition Levante S GranSport SUV featuring Ermenegildo Zegna interior, which is a visionary woven leather textile named PELLETESSUTA™, made exclusively for selected Maserati vehicles.
This collaboration between the two iconic Italian brands is not new given their shared passion for traditional craftsmanship as well as innovative design ideas. Born of old-world Italian traditions and today’s innovative technology, PELLETESSUTA™ is a result of years of research, which developed the ingenious use of thin Nappa leather strips, replacing conventional fabric yarn, while following the traditional method of weaving to create an ultra-luxurious “fabric” that is lightweight, soft and enduring.
“Like Maserati, the PELLETESSUTA™ by Ermenegildo Zegna combines new avant-garde technologies with century-old craftmanship 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 Dato’ Nik Hamdam, Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Automotive Group, Naza Corporation Holdings.
For the first time in the history of Maserati-Zegna partnership, the customisation has been extended to also include the GranSport trims of the Maserati range, expanding the possibilities for personalisation. The special edition Levante S GranSport features an exclusive bronzo tri-coat exterior colour; stunning Black PELLETESSUTA™ interior with exclusive Radica wood trim with the words “Ermenegildo Zegna PELLETESSUTA”; black brake calipers; and 21” polished Helios rims – an especially sophisticated combination for this SUV. The exterior colour is also available in Blue Nobile tri-coat paint, as an alternative to esteemed clients.
