Maserati Levante and Jamie Barrow with great performance on ice

Maserati Levante

Briton Jamie Barrow has fallen into the Guinness Book of Records after becoming the world’s fastest snowboarder in the car. The Maserati Levante Crossover has entered the role of a trailer.

The achievement was recorded on a frozen lake near St. Moritz (Switzerland). In one direction the snowboarder developed a speed of 151.57 km/h, and in the opposite – 147.72 km/h. Thus the Guinness Book recorded an average speed of 149.65 km/h. It is 50 km/h more than the previous record – 99.87 km/h.

The used Maserati Levante was equipped with special Pirelli Scorpion winter tires, each with 474 separate studs. The route has previously been switched from snow-clearing machines to maximize traction.

Modification of the crossover involved in the record is not specified. The Maserati Levante comes with a 3.0-liter gasoline twin-turbo V6 engine developing 350 or 430 hp. Diesel versions also for 3.0-liter – 250 or 275 hp. All versions are equipped with 8-speed ZF gearbox.

It is expected this year that Maserati will release the top-of-the-line GTS, which will teach the 3.8-liter unit with two turbines from the Quattroporte GTS sedan. This engine develops 530 hp. and 710 Nm of torque.
