To highlight Maserati’s all-Italian identity, the colours chosen for the Trofeo launch are those of the country’s flag: green for Quattroporte, white for Levante and red for Ghibli.
This is combined with the burnished chrome-work and glossy red trims to give the cars an elegant look.

The engine, which has already revealed all its power on Levante Trofeo, is built at the Ferrari plant at Maranello to Maserati’s specification. The engine has been modified and developed to deliver equally impressive performances on the rear-engine sedans.
The cars come with Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) system, with a specific setup that guarantees enhanced driving dynamics, greater safety and even more thrilling performance.
The sedans have the Corsa button that facilitates a sportier driving experience. Also included is the Launch Control, a function that first appeared on Levante Trofeo, to boost the engine’s power.

True to Maserati’s character, there are a few special stylistic touches that characterise these high-performance models. These include the front grille with twin vertical bars in Black Piano finish, and the introduction of carbon fibre on the front air duct trims and rear extractor, for an even more aggressive effect.
The Trofeo collection can be distinguished by its red details that characterise the bottom profiles of the side air vents and the lightning bolt on the Trident badge on the C-pillars.
In the rear of the cars, the light clusters have been completely restyled. It now has a boomerang-like profile inspired by the 3,200 GT and the Alfieri concept car.
