Mansory is introducing a range of upgrades for the Maserati Levante at the Geneva Motor Show, and the new pieces remove anything understated from the Italian performance crossover. More power and some over-the-top aesthetic revisions make it hard to miss this eye-catching SUV.
For some extra muscle, Mansory offers upgraded engine management software, an improved air filter, and a new exhaust. These upgrades add an extra 34hp, which takes the total output to 458hp from the regular Levante S' 3.0-litre biturbo V6. The boosted output should make the Levante a little meaner, but reports indicate that Maserati is considering putting the 3.8-litre biturbo V8 from the Quattroporte GTS into the SUV that could make 523hp and 524lb ft of torque.
Mansory has a bodykit available that more than matches the engine upgrades. The most noticeable change is a new bonnet with a pronounced scoop in the middle. A revised front splitter features LED signature lights, and the grille gets carbon fibre uprights. Updated trim in the lower fascia lends the face a sharper look, too. At the rear a spoiler sits on top of the hatch. Further down, there’s a prominent diffuser that wraps around the sides and rectangular exhaust outlets. Slightly wider arches cover Mansory’s 22-inch wheels that are available in Diamond Black or Diamond Silver finishes.
The tuner offers buyers the chance to customise the Levante’s interior, too. Orange-tinged carbon fibre trim is definitely attention-grabbing. Mansory also has a sport steering wheel and aluminium pedals among its aftermarket components. The company can also install custom upholstery.
If Mansory's updates aren't up to a Levante owner's taste, Startech is also bringing upgraded version of Maserati's crossover to Geneva. It doesn't have the powertrain revisions, but the body kit is a little less ostentatious.

MANSORY raises the storm:
Refinement programmes for Maserati Levante
Maserati named its luxury SUV after a moderate easterly wind. The refinement by
MANSORY however, is more like a hurricane.
The vehicle has a more confident appearance than the series version due to the
newly designed widebody. The front lip with side flaps and the integrated LED
daytime running lights make a clear statement. Together with the front splitters,
mirror housing and the new grill mask with vertical and horizontal accents it is
immediately clear: this is not about an understatement.
This statement particularly characterises the wheelhouse expansions and door
attachments with which Maserati is growing in width. The diffusor with the diffusor
board is at the rear and the angular end pipes are perfectly adjusted to the new
aerodynamic package. The expanded roof spoiler and the rear spoiler also show that
MANSORY gives the vehicle an aggressive character.
The entire widebody as well as the accents on the mudguards, doors and the mask
on the rear are made of orange painted visible carbon fibres. Here, the manufacturer
once again shows all its skills. At MANSORY the carbon fibre parts are not bought in
addition but are designed by the company and produced in in-house autoclaves. This
extensive process ensures absolute independence and freedom in terms of design
due to an unrivalled vertical range of manufacture.
The light alloy wheels GTurismo perfectly match the overall refinement in terms of
appearance and construction. The colour variants, Diamond Black and Diamond
Silver, cover ultra-high performance tyres in the dimension 265/35 in 9x22 inch front
wheels, and 295/30 tyres adorn the 10.5x22 rims at the rear. With the suitable wheel
spacer MANSORY ensures that the wheels are not only suitable for the Levante
series but also for the widebody.
The motor development of MANSORY is building on the new agility. The V6 twin
turbo of the Levante S is given a performance boost of 35 HP (25 kW). This
additional power result in a newly programmed motor management, sports air filter
and the new sports silencer, who angular end pipes protrude from the diffusor.
The newly designed interior presents itself in a confident manner. The new airbag
sports steering wheel and the aluminium pedals are of the highest level both in terms
of function and aesthetics. The numerous orange coloured carbon applications
harmoniously link the overall appearance with the interior while the needlework of the
upholstered and leather-covered seats prove the high-level of craftsmanship of the
The extensive refinement programme once against proves that MANSORY
understands what it means to create a strong unique model from a production
