At the ongoing Goodwood Festival of Speed, Maserati has launched its highly focussed Levante GTS SUV. With the Q4 AWD system it won’t just be easy for the Levante to get out of the car park, but thanks to its Ferrari-assembled twin turbo V8, it can run up and down the hill course without breaking a sweat.

The 3.8-litre engine makes 542 bhp, which gives the Maserati Levante GTS a 0-100 kph time of just 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 292 kph. In terms of styling, there’s a new lower front fascia, redesigned rear bumper, and slightly more premium interior.
