I’m pressing the start button. The 6-cylinder engine, built by Ferrari, howls under the stylish shaped hood. It’s a unique sound in the car world and everybody love it. Me too. I fell in love with Maserati Levante S GranLusso when I first met him in Cannes.
Not just a car
It is often said a car is just a commodity. For me – not only! The oldest wheel with an axle in human history is 5200 years old. It brought the world closer and changed it positively. A car is a synonym for the genius of the human brain, which is capable of producing such inventions.
If you talk to Maserati’s car designers or factory employees, you’ll immediately recognize it’s not just any tinplate, it’s passion and love. Every move that contributes to the perfection of this car reflects the creativity of each individual who has worked on this Italian beauty.
If we pay attention to emphasizing our personality through clothing style and accessories, why don’t we pay attention to the car in which there is so much passion and love of an engineer, designer, modeller, technician?

A journey is made especially by...
A journey or an excursion is always exciting, because it promises new experiences, unexpected adventures and encounters that even can change somebody’s life. If you travel with a special car, every trip will be a special event.
A fellow traveler through Oman
The next few months I’ll travel through Oman. The land of 1001 nights is also the origin of Sindbad and the best frankincense in the world. They were always mobile, the Omanis, also in the antiquity, which helped them to the wealth.It’s with camels and donkeys they went through the desert to export spices, frankincense and other luxury goods.
Sindbad went down in history as the seafarer with his unique ships, called Dhau, which were the best in the world at that time already. Even today these historical splendid specimens are handmade of wood. Sometimes it takes two years to finish this nautical jewelry. And the price? A half a million it may become.
But that’s a price one likes to pay for rare beauties. This is also the case with the Maserati Levante S GranLusso. I travel like a Roman goddess through the streets with 430 horsepower, while I’m literally bedded on the finest silk. The red leather of the sports seats is extravagant, combined with anthracite-colored elements woven from silk fibres, created by luxury designer Ermenegildo Zegna. The trident of the sea god Neptune adorns the black radiator grille. It’s as if the Roman god changed his chariot for this Italian beauty to explore Sinbad’s homeland.
The eclectic Oman
The coasts of the country are vast, mostly deserted, breathtaking. But also in the inland there’re many treasures to discover. Castles, fortresses, ancient sites, canyons, deserts, wadis. Most of these destinations can only be reached by a 4×4 wheel SUV. Maserati Levante S GranLusso is the perfect companion and gentleman. He fulfills almost every wish. With him I’m courageous and I explore new ways. I am curious …
What could be hidden behind every curve or every rock? Gravel road, desert or beach sand – my good-looking bodyguard on four wheels masters all surfaces without any problems.
Maserati’s design and soul, a symbiosis of temperament and comfort, reflect the Italian way of life – pure modernity without ignoring worthy traditions. It’s the same way of culture you’ll find in Oman. “Power comes to those who dominate the sea. Neptune’s trident is the sceptre of the world” is a quote from the 18th century. Indeed, the Maserati logo is, was and remains a good choice.
