In the days before modern technology, talented artisans fashioned objects of great beauty with basic tools and bare hands. Today, Maserati and bespoke Italian tailor Ermenegildo Zegna continue this tradition, ensuring that every detail of their work embodies the finest craftsmanship.
The partnership between the two Italian companies has previously created bespoke interiors for the Ghibli and Quattroporte models – now it’s the turn of the Levante, which features PELLETESSUTA™ woven leather for the first time.
Like a fine, made-to-measure suit, PELLETESSUTA™ was developed through the pioneering research of the Ermenegildo Zegna Style Centre and Maserati.
The three-dimensionality of the woven strips of leather create a tactile surface, restoring light and texture and adapting to the sinuous surface of the Levante dashboard, sports seats and door panels. Matched with black Pieno Fiore interior, it delivers exceptional levels of luxury and craftmanship for which Maserati is known the world over.
Based on the petrol V6 Levante GranSport, the Levante Zegna Edition also adds unique Bronzo exterior tri-coat paint and Zegna badging on its B-pillars, 21-inch Helios alloy wheels, subtle black brake callipers, powerful Bowers & Wilkins audio, Driver Assistance Package (including autonomous braking and adaptive cruise control) and the Maserati Trident sitting proud on the headrests.
“The Levante Zegna Edition is proof that attention to detail and visionary innovation can create beautiful design,” says Glen Sealey, Chief Operating Officer, Maserati Australia and New Zealand. “Through the longstanding partnership between Zegna and Maserati, we are the only automotive company to bring this ground-breaking PELLETESSUTA™ interior to market, and we’re delighted to have secured just seven of these models from such a limited global run.”
