Maserati Levante Zegna edition now on sale in Australia

November 26, 2019

A very special edition Maserati has just been announced for Australia, based on the Levante SUV. Called the Levante Zegna, this is the SUV for lovers of beautifully-crafted interiors.

The special model is the result of a partnership between Maserati and Italian tailor Ermenegildo Zegna. Extremely high-quality craftsmanship is applied inside thanks to Zegna, with its exquisite “PELLETESSUTA” woven leather used for the first time on a production car.

Fans that enjoy fine attention to detail will love the three-dimensional woven strips of leather that create multiple textures, reflecting light in an all-new way. It’s all been crafted to match the interior design of the Levante as well, across the dash, seats and door trims.

The special edition is based on the twin-turbo petrol V6 Levante GranSport (257kW/500Nm), and features an exclusive bronze tri-coat exterior paint paired with some Zegna badges.

There’s also discreet black brake calipers, 21-inch ‘Helios’ alloy wheels, while the interior receives a premium Bowers & Wilkins sound system. Speaking about the Zegna edition, Glen Sealey, chief operating officer of Maserati Australia and New Zealand, said:

“Through the longstanding partnership between Zegna and Maserati, we are the only automotive company to bring this ground-breaking PELLETESSUTA interior to market, and we’re delighted to have secured just seven of these models from such a limited global run.”

Just seven examples are up for grabs in Australia and the order books are now open, so you better get in quick. Prices start from $170,000 (excluding on-road costs), which is up from the regular Levante GranSport’s starting price of $159,990.
