Ever looked at the Levante and thought it was too tame? Startech did, and then they remedied the situation.

The subsidiary of Brabus gave the Maserati a more aggressive touch by adding a custom body kit with 21in Monostar M wheels and exclusive interior options. The new front spoiler helps give the luxury SUV a meaner face while around the back it gets a new diffuser with four tailpipes, part of the Startech sport exhaust system.

The cabin gets scuff plates with backlit logos, aluminium pedals and a footrest and carbon-fibre trim on the dash, centre console and door panels.

This was Startech’s first attempt at sprucing up an Italian brand — and we must say it was a job well done.
