    Yes, I know.
    Once I almost bought a race car from the Trofeo MC World Series 2014.

    As you can read user Bay had doubts regarding the name "Trofeo" because Alfa Romeo used this name already for a few "special" models. I guess now is it clear, his doubts were unnecessary.

    For Maserati in the 21st century anyway Trofeo had a very different meaning until now. It was much more than Sport. At best this new version of the Levante is a Sport model so this a quite tortured use of the term for cutesy marketing purposes.
    Maserati has been quite sloppy when it comes to respecting and with the caretaking ever single the end of the 60-70s era GT cars. They neglected to protect the Bora name so now it's VW POS :rolleyes:. They never should have named the Biturbo coupe redesign a Ghibli II because it wasn't one even if it was a nice car. Then they used it again for a mid sized sedan more recently. Is there a Corvette sedan or Thunderbird sedan? No. So Trofeo it its then. Whatever ...

    Very boring side profile. They missed an opportunity to make it stand out more from the side with some interesting differences from the regular model.

    IMO you're right Boo, I fully agree, that could be done better.

    Yeah, same here. We are planning to trade the QP GTS for one later this year if we can get one. I would be happy with the GTS but someone else has said that isn't going to be in the US for another year.

    From the article: "A special Levante Trofeo Launch Edition, offered only in the United States and Canada, includes additional black exterior details, a serialized Launch Edition badge on the center console, and available black leather seats with Launch Edition–exclusive blue or yellow stitching. Production of the Levante Trofeo begins this summer with sales expected to start shortly thereafter."

    Oh goody, who doesn't want a serialized launch edition badge on the center console so that you know it's special! Will it say limited somewhere on the exterior as well? :rolleyes:
