Maserati buyers in the UK can treat themselves to something a little more exclusive in 2021, thanks to the introduction of new Sportivo and Sportivo X special edition variants for the Ghibli and Levante SUV.
While both trims offer a host of additional features, it is the Sportivo X that should be the most desirable. Customers can choose between three exterior paint options in Nero Ribelle, Grigio Maratea, and Blu Emozione.
The specs are also exclusive to Maserati’s most desirable cars for the UK, namely the 350 PS (345 HP) Levante V6 and the recently introduced 330 PS (325 HP) Ghibli Hybrid.
Ghibli Hybrid Sportivo
In Sportivo Special Edition trim, the Ghibli Hybrid comes with the carmaker’s Nerissimo styling pack, gloss black 20-inch Urano alloys, extended leather interior upholstery, aluminum paddle-shifters, 12-way power and heated front sports seats, black piano high-gloss wood trim, and a rearview camera.
Opt instead for the Sportivo X variant and you’ll also enjoy the Skyhook active damping suspension, the Driver Assistance Pack Plus, full-LED adaptive Matrix headlights, and 21-inch gloss black Titano alloy wheels.
Inside, the Ghibli Sportivo X adds ventilated and heated front seats, heated leather sports steering wheel, red contrast stitching, wireless charging, soft close doors, and brushed stainless steel pedals.
