Ferrari will supply all future powertrains, electrified and conventional.
Spoiler: the Chrysler 200 didn't make it.
With 590 horsepower and 538 pound-feet of torque, the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine powering the all-wheel-drive Levante Trofeo boasts the greatest power-per-liter of any engine ever installed in a Maserati. Not surprisingly, the engine and its 156-hp-per-liter output are the product of the men from Maranello. The Ferrari-based V8 pushes the Levante Trofeo to 60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 187 mph.
In some ways, Maserati had it easier in the 1980s. We don't necessarily mean in a financial sense, or that the cars were especially reliable, but it has to be said both the Biturbo and the third generation Quattroporte are both simple, three-box shapes that are easy to re-create from blocks of solid wood.
Ram and Alfa were bright spots.
The change applies to Ghibli, Quattroporte and Levante.
This is a slightly less hardcore GT430.
Plus, Alfa Romeo and Maserati won't be spun off under Marchionne's watch.
There were some great cars borne during the malaise of the 1970s. Cars any car enthusiast would give a limb to own. These 11 are some of the greatest.
More details to come after the official reveal.
Maserati makes sense, though, right?
It's a significant change for Maserati, and for FCA as a whole.
The Maserati's brash anachronism is a breath of fresh air.

I see an Italian car and I want to paint it black.
