Sporty-elegant styling and 21-inch wheels with center lock look for the Italian SUV
The STARTECH front spoiler lends the face of the first SUV from Maserati an even more distinctive profile. The integrated wing profile that energetically juts into the wind is also available in a decidedly sporty raw carbon fiber version. However, the new aerodynamic-enhancement component has more than just visual benefits: The shape optimized in the wind tunnel further reduces lift on the front axle. This benefits the handling stability at high speeds. Of course, the new STARTECH front component complies with the strict EU directives on pedestrian protection.
The same concept lies behind the design of the STARTECH attachment for the stock rear bumper. The strikingly styled component provides the perfect backdrop for the four tailpipes featuring the hallmark design of the refinement specialist. They are combined with the standard exhaust system of either of the Levante’s two types of engine. A STARTECH sport exhaust with actively controlled exhaust flap is available for the twin-turbo V-6 gasoline engine. Another important feature of the STARTECH rear component is the integrated diffusor, which as this vehicle demonstrates also comes optionally in a raw carbon version. This lends the SUV from Maserati a touch of motor racing looks from the rear as well.
As a visually and aerodynamically effective addition to the standard roof spoiler, the designers created the STARTECH C-Blades, which attach on the left and right side of the tailgate and calm the airflow.
Of course, the STARTECH REFINEMENT design program for the Italian SUV also includes tailor-made wheels. The 21-inch wheels on the front axle are 9.5 inches wide and mounted with tires of size 265/40 ZR 21. The rear features 10.5Jx21 wheels with size 295/35R 21 tires. However, the new STARTECH Monostar M wheels impress not only with their king-sized format: An innovative hub cover lends the striking design with five double spokes an unusual center lock look like on a racecar.
Of course, STARTECH will also fulfill any conceivable special request for the redesign of the interior appointments in the company upholstery shop. The upholsterers transform the finest leather and Alcantara in any desired color and upholstery layout into a tasteful and either extremely luxurious or decidedly sporty interior. STARTECH backs all components and work with a comprehensive three-year, 100,000- kilometer warranty (see STARTECH Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated June 2013)
