An Italian Adventure
Signature|December 2017

A Maserati and an SUV. Can it get any better? Signature sets out on an exhilarating drive with one of the finest automobiles from Maserati – the Levante

I was one of the fortunate ones to experience the Maserati Levante and what attracted me the most was the Trident logo inspired from a fountain statue of Neptune in Bologna, Italy, stands tall and is engraved throughout the Levante. Maserati, reputed for fast cars with stunning interiors, is here to remain well entrenched within the realms of SUV world.

Maserati has always been known for fantastic interiors, and from the moment you open the driver’s door, you know you are entering a very special vehicle. As soon as I found myself behind the steering wheel, I began to feel a sense of luxury, especially because it has been known as ‘The Luxury SUV’ in the Sultanate since its launched in April 2016.

I was fascinated by the interiors with wood and carbon-fiber trim speak volumes of impeccable artistry that lends the SUV bold and brazen. The décor quintessentially SUV is equipped with sound systems created in association with Bowers & Wilkins or Harman Kardon, unveiling world’s most stylish car interior, designed by the legendary fashion house of Ermenegildo Zegna.

MASERATI MC20

How do you become what you already are? MC20 stands for Maserati Corse 2020 and marks the Brand’s entrance into a new era, the rediscovery of its original sporty DNA, its dynamic roots and essential audacity. Maserati long known for its comfort and elegance on the road, now strikes back with ferocity on the track: a car that runs but doesn’t sweat. MC20 represents the pure form of speed, with Maserati panache: a work of sculptural engineering seemingly hewn, piece by piece, from a masterfully chiselled block of raw carbon, showing the way to the Brand’s aesthetic future. Created through a process of elimination, there are no frills and no excess: just energy. MC20 is an archetype, carved for speed, so pure one seems to hear the hallmark Maserati sound even with the engine off.
