2019 Maserati Levante Trofeo is pretty darn fast and equally fancy

If you want one of the fastest Maseratis ever made, you don't have to wait for a Gooding & Co auction. You can just stroll down to the dealership.

I'm not quite sure how many people out there looked at the Maserati Levante SUV and said, "I'd buy one, but only if it were way too fast for its own good," but at least one person did.

The 2019 Maserati Levante Trofeo is a performance-oriented SUV that Maserati claims is one of the fastest production Maseratis ever.

Its engine is a 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 putting out 590 horsepower and 538 pound-feet of torque -- a variant of the engine found in the Quattroporte sedan.

The Levante Trofeo will hit 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and keep going past 187 mph.

Those figures are pretty close to the MC12 supercar, a sibling of the Ferrari Enzo, which hit 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds and topped out a hair above 205.

The outside sports a bunch of carbon fiber elements, and there's a set of 22-inch aluminum wheels filling the wells. LED headlights come along for the ride, too.

The interior has a set of sport seats wrapped in natural leather, and there's a new shift lever that Maserati says has "improved functionality," even though the other one does a plenty fine job of changing gears already.

There's also a new Corsa ("race," in Italian) mode, in the event you feel like taking your luxury SUV to the track.

The car you see in these pictures is the limited launch edition, which sports matte paint, matte wheels and red brake calipers.
