A couple of years ago, the Maserati brand introduced the high-performance Maserati Levante Trofeo. Powered by a 590 horsepower twin-turbocharged V8, the Trofeo is the ultimate performance version of the Levante as well as the entire brand. Now it’s time for the Italian premium brand to introduce more vehicles to the Trofeo name with the addition of the Quattroporte and Ghibli.
Maserati teased the new performance models on Twitter, that featured a single teaser image and the date of August 10th, 2020 as the official date of the reveal.
Get ready for The Art of Fast.

Rumors suggest that the Levante’s 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 could find its way under the hood of all three models. This means that that the Quattroporte Trofeo could not only be getting the Ferrari-assembled powerplant but also getting all-wheel-drive to go along with the added performance. The smaller Ghibli, which recently made news with the addition of the new Ghibli Hybrid, will also receive the Trofeo treatment for 2021. However, if the Ghibli does get the 3.8-liter engine under the hood, there is nothing to confirm that it will get the full 590 horsepower rating yet. If it does, expect the midsize sedan to be a rocketship!
Following in the footsteps of the Levante Trofeo, we expect that the new 2021 lineup will get a more aggressive styling with added carbon fiber splitters and other unique aero advancements from the rest of the model’s lineup. We also expect that the lineup will get revised interiors, that include a new 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system based on the new Uconnect systems found on the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica and 2021 Dodge Durango.
We can’t wait to see the new lineup of high-performance models when they are officially unveiled in less than two weeks.
