NOVITEC has never been one to shy away from the creation of over-the-top enhancements, especially when speaking on today’s most luxurious vehicles. But what happens when the outfit takes a more understated approach to the process? Its ESTESO widebody, which originally debuted on the Maserati Levante over three years ago, sheds light on the company’s ability to deviate from its exaggerated persona — and now, a redesigned iteration has been scheduled for release sometime this year.
NOVITEC’s ESTESO widebody once again adorns the exterior of Maserati’s luxurious Levante SUV, calling upon enhanced fender flares, extensions, and a sport-styled front and rear fascia to bring the vehicle out of its hovel, and into a new era of opulence. Below the hood, the Levante’s original Ferrari-supplied 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine has been massaged to garner 624 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque, a staunch departure from the already-formidable 590/538 that it boasts from the factory floor. As a result, the naked-carbon-contrived SUV accelerates from 0-62 miles-per-hour in just under 3.8 seconds, allowing it to reach its top speed of 192 MPH with relative ease. The vehicle has also been lowered by around 25 millimeters, complementing its standard air ride suspension and soliciting a low center of gravity for ultra-tight hairpin turns.
