It is a sales pitch, but some nice pics of details. Just uploaded in the last couple of days.

I rented a Maserati Levante S for a recent road trip. It's an all wheel drive SUV with a twin turbo V6 (426 hp). There is an upgraded version with 509 hp. It has a sport mode and an off road mode. On the highway at about 75 mph you get a display message that "Aero 1 ride height has been achieved". You can feel the car lower itself and louvers in the front grill close - active aero. Seeing that there was an "Aero 1" mode, I went looking for Aero 2, but never did find it. LOL

Pappy - guess you weren't going fast enough?

from brochure: their spelling - not mine
AERO 2
Automatically activated at even higher speeds, it reduces the vehicle's height by 35 mm compared to the normal mode to minimise aerodynamic resistance.
I'm still working on active wings - active suspension will be a bit of an effort. Progress has slowed while trying to sell a boat!

Quote:
more from brochure --
The height adjustments also interact with the engine operation modes for the ultimate in overall efficiency. This air suspension is then combined with Maseratiís acclaimed Skyhook system, with shock absorbers featuring continuous damping variation. The basic setting prioritises comfort, whereas for a more dynamic drive, the shock absorbers stiffen and the car assumes a more sporty character
Cheers - Jim
