NAZA ITALIA –
MASERATI CELEBRATES A DECADE OF ITALIAN
INNOVATION AND EXCELLENCE
It’s been ten years since the first Trident automobiles arrived on Malaysia’s shores in 2009. Naza Italia–Maserati, the sole importer and distributor of Maserati, celebrates a decade of success in introducing the wide range of Maserati innovative models, as well as creating full lifestyle and ownership experience of the iconic Italian marque for discerned Malaysian clients.
As part of its 10th Anniversary celebration, Naza Italia–Maserati unveiled the limited edition SUV (sports utility vehicle), the Levante Vulcano Limited Edition, where only 10 units will be available for the Malaysian market.
The Levante represents the turning point in Maserati’s history. It trail-blazes through new territory for the brand as the marque makes its first foray into the world of luxury sport utility vehicles in its more than 100-year history. When the Levante was first launched in 2016, it also made a key contribution to completing the marque’s luxury and sporty fleet line-up. Since then, the Levante has been a popular addition to Malaysia’s luxury automotive market.
Indeed, the new Levante Vulcano is produced in a series of just 150 units for the European and Asian markets. The units for Malaysia are available with twin-turbo V6 engine of 430 hp, as well as exclusive finishes and matte Grigio Lava colour exterior that comes with the new Vulcano logo and the words “one of 150”.
Present at the 10th Anniversary celebration was SM Nasarudin Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin, Group Executive Chairman of Naza Corporation Holdings Sdn Bhd who attributed the distributor’s success to Maserati’s innovation and the dedication and commitment of the Malaysian team to the brand and business.
Speaking to the media at the celebration, Datuk Samson Anand George, Group CEO of the Automotive Division at Naza Corporation Holdings Sdn Bhd, emphasised that the flagship centre represented Naza Italia–Maserati’s commitment towards the brand and clientele in Malaysia. He said: “We strive to make the entire experience of owning a Maserati unique and sensational – from the moment you walk through the doors of our showroom, to the point of your car’s delivery and the dedicated after-service. To this commitment, and to the delight of Maserati fans and enthusiasts in northern Peninsular Malaysia, I am pleased to announce that plans are in the pipeline for our network expansion in Penang.”
The public is invited to visit the Naza Italia- Maserati showroom in Petaling Jaya to view the Levante Vulcano and speak with Naza Italia – Maserati’s team in greater detail about Maserati’s newest offering.

The Vulcano limited edition is available with twin-turbo V6 engine of 430 hp, designed by Maserati Powertrain and built at the Ferrari plant in Maranello.
The exclusive matte “Grigio Lava” shade of the exterior highlights the Trident SUV’s sporty lines to magnificent effect. The exterior look is completed by the Nerissimo pack details (dark look rear light clusters, black chrome front grille and logos, glossy black window surrounds, body-coloured door handles and burnished exhaust tailpipes), the 21- inch Helios wheels, also with matte finish, and the red brake calipers.
The 6-piston Brembo Dual Cast braking system guarantees excellent braking performance.
Inside the new Levante Vulcano, every finish is redolent with sporty elegance. The heated, ventilated full Pieno Fiore leather seats come in red colour, featuring electrical adjustment with memories, complete with contrasting embroidered Trident logo on the headrest, and are designed to underline the model’s “volcanic” personality. In addition, it is fully equipped with an impressively comprehensive range of Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) with more active functions, whilst retaining the razor-sharp steering feel symbolic of any Maserati. The functions include Integrated Vehicle Control, Forward Collision Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition, Surround View Camera, Highway Assist System, Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist.
The exclusive allure of the new Levante Vulcano limited edition is further enhanced by the interior trims in high gloss carbon fibre, also used for the gearshift paddles and the insert on the electrically adjustable sport steering wheel, and the chromed aluminium badge on the central tunnel bearing the legendary Trident, together with the new Vulcano logo and the words “one of 150”.
The standard outfit is completed by the Bowers&Wilkins premium sound system, soft door closure system, front and rear parking sensors and full-LED Matrix adaptive headlights.
