Maserati presents the Royale special series: a contemporary homage to the heritage of the Trident Marque

  • Only 100 units of this series will be manufactured, available across the full V6 range for Quattroporte, Levante and Ghibli.
  • Available in two unique colours, Blu Royale and Verde Royale, with exclusive interior features.

Beauty can be reflected in a jewel, a painting or a landscape. Elegance, on the other hand, is not only confined to a glance. Elegance can be found in a movement, in an expression or in conversation. Simply put, elegance is beauty in motion, and no car moves with more elegance than a Maserati, the ultimate expression of dynamic beauty.

Throughout its history Maserati has created unique models and exclusive series. Amongst them, the 1986 Royale version of the 3rd generation Quattroporte stands out, a restyling featuring exclusive blue and green colours, improved interiors, with soft leather seats and extensive use of wood in the dashboard and door panels. The Quattroporte Royale was equipped with a powerful 4.9l V8 engine delivering 300 HP and only 51 units were produced.

Today Maserati pays tribute to its heritage with the launch of a special series bearing the same name, available across all models with V6 engines featured in the current Maserati range: just 100 Maserati Quattroporte, Levante and Ghibli Royale will be produced with engines ranging from the 275HP 3.0l V6 Diesel, to the 350HP and 430 HP 3.0l V6 petrol.

The new Royale special series is available in two unique blue and green colours: Blu Royale and Verde Royale. To complete the elegant exterior look, the Levante Royale features 21” Anteo Staggered Anthracite rims and Titanium Anthracite rims on Ghibli and Quattroporte, all bespoke for the series, and all with silver brake calipers.

The Royale interiors, based on the GranLusso trim, are available in Zegna PELLETESSUTA™ Cuoio or two-tone Pieno Fiore leather in Black/Cuoio. The Zegna PELLETESSUTA™ is a woven leather textile made exclusively for Maserati vehicle interiors. Born of old-world Italian traditions and today’s innovative technology, it was ingeniously fashioned using thin strips of Nappa leather to create an ultra-luxurious “fabric” that is lightweight, soft and durable.

High Gloss inserts (Metal Net for the Levante, Ebony for the Ghibli and Black Piano for the Quattroporte) and a distinctive “One of 100” plate complete the interior look, which also features the Bowers&Wilkins Sound System, electric sunroof and privacy glass.

The Royale Special Series comes with extensive equipment, thanks to the Cold Weather, Premium and Drving Assistance Plus Packages fitted as standard. Whether driving down city streets or taking part in an exclusive grand tour, high-powered luxury will be met with greater-than-ever safety on the road.

The Maserati Levante, Quattroporte, and Ghibli Royale feature comprehensive Advanced Driving Assistance Systems to actively respond to the road’s greatest potential hazards and enhance comfort and safety for driver and passengers.

Like the rest of the range, the Royale Special Series features the Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC+) unit, an 8.4” touchscreen interface that takes pride of place at the centre of the dashboard and is extremely straightforward to use. The MTC+ controls all the key vehicle functions, including the front seat heating, as well as the ventilation, steering wheel heating and the operation of the rear sunblind, where fitted. The screen also displays the rear view depicted by the reversing camera, with guidelines for ease of use.

The state-of-the-art system features both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® mirroring functions. In addition, for iPhone® users, Apple’s Siri® system acts as a personal assistant, allowing them to carry out tasks using voice command. Through naturally spoken language, it is possible to make a call or access music, messages, reminders, emails, websites and much more.

Although the first deliveries are scheduled for March 2020, orders for this series limited to only 100 units can already be placed. Prices for the Royale Special Series are available on request.

Review and Benefits of Writing Service

When I first looked at, I was skeptical. There are a ton of companies out there that promise to write essays and do similar work. When I started exploring their site more, I realized they do so much more than just essays. These guys are professionals, capable of doing all sorts of research and complex order requests. They prefer reasonable deadlines but will expedite your order if you’re willing to pay a little extra. Their easy-to-use home page lets you mouse over for an estimate of deadline difficulty. Eight hours is red, and green begins at fourteen days. That makes total sense.


I hunted high and low for hidden fees but didn’t find any. Title and bibliography pages are free and if the work comes back and you’re not satisfied you may be eligible for an entirely free revision. The conditions are available via their revision policy, but the gist of it is you must keep the same or similar instructions for the revision and not add any contradictory ones. Then, you submit using the “request revision” button on your personal page. Finally, don’t forget to call for the revision within seven days of the initial approval. You can still request a change after the 7-day deadline, but there may be an additional fee. I don’t see that being a problem for most people. It’s a whole week to take a look at the work and make sure you’re happy with the result.

The best part of is they’ve hired experienced writers that produce plagiarism free papers with proper citations. Whatever you need an essay for, they’ve got the skills to write it for you. Just tell them everything you know about the article and they’ll take care of it. No worries or stress for you, just look it over after it’s finished. If you need a change, just tell them within seven days. It’s that simple. Add in 24/7 customer support and you really can’t go wrong. What better way to have a job done worry-free than to be able to ask the company you’ve hired questions about it anytime, day or night? is innovative in their approach to large projects. They offer something they call progressive delivery. If your order is eligible, you will receive the document one section at a time. This process significantly reduces the risk you’ll get an extensive text you dislike. If you need changes to the overall document, you can make those adjustments early causing much less pain and stress. Then future deliveries can incorporate those changes, and you’ll no longer need to worry about those major concerns. It does cost additional, and there are limitations, but even so most other writing services offer nothing like this service.

Do you hire writers for essays frequently? offers discounts for loyal customers. Also, they have 24/7 customer support available via email, phone, and live chat. All of these features determine my review of to be nothing but positive. Just in case you’re on the fence about hiring a writing service, there are general benefits of hiring a writing service in general. You get a high-quality document written without hours of research, writing, and revision. You can access a talented pool of writers with experience in areas relevant to your request.

You’re also able to read the document before accepting it and ask for changes as needed. The author will update the paper for you at no additional cost and with minimal inconvenience to you. It’s great to meet deadlines with ease while freeing you up to focus on other important aspects of your life and career. Not to mention, if you usually write the task yourself you can get a unique new perspective on the entire assignment.

There are a ton of benefits of writing service websites. As I mentioned before, my review of is nothing but positive. I highly recommend hiring them for your next assignment. Their competent team of skilled writers will help you with your task and work with you to make sure it meets your needs. Let assist you with your next document. You’ll be glad you did.

Bayete Zulu Game Game Reserve | Interview With Graham Adams

Last month I was lucky to be one of the bloggers given an opportunity to experience staying at Bayete Zulu Game Reserve. I sure had a great time and really enjoyed spending some time with some of the bloggers that came along.

I interviewed the Bayete Zulu Game ranger, Graham Adams – who’s actually the coolest and youngest Game Ranger I have ever met. I had a lot to ask him as I was really impressed to see how passionate he is about his job.

Read our Q&A Below:

Tell me more about when you first started working at Bayete, did you experience any challenges getting yourself familiar with the reserve since it is such a huge place?
I started with bayete on the 1st of December 2012, being my first real guiding position I was
Nervous. You sort of wonder if you are going to be good enough, will guests like you, colleagues ECT. Then you get given a vehicle and a map and told go drive 23 000 hectares with most probably 400-500 roads on it. Eish. quite often your only indication of what direction to head in is to take a left at that “green“tree, and might I say how familiar you get with a certain “green” or dead tree when you know that if you miss that turning you and your guest are now on an adventure in the bush heading the opposite way from the lodge. It took me about 3 months to learn roads although even now I still find new places to explore.

How did you hear about this post, I mean – you are from the South Coast…?
My girlfriend and I were doing our walking safari training up here in Zululand and even though we were just doing a short course the guys from our training provider (Bhejane nature training) were nice enough to find us placement, Louise (my girl) was offered a position at Bayete and I was sent up to hoedspruit to work on Balule game reserve, where after 2 months I didn’t agree with their ethics and safety procedures (as well as home sick) and parted ways with them. I then joined croc world down on the south coast where I helped out with crocodile feeds and venomous snake shows until Louise gave me a call one day, bayete was looking for a new ranger and she had recommended me. I came up for an interview about a week later and the rest is history.

Were your parents comfortable with letting leave your home?
As sad as they were about me leaving home, the fact that I had followed my dream my whole life and finally made it come true made them happier than they ever could be. Not many people are lucky enough to know where they belong in this world, what to do with their futures ECT and i think that is a big worry for any parent as well. I had also had a rough couple years through high school that I think had put even more worry of my future on to my parents mind, so when in a matter of a year I had pulled myself out the gutter and found my calling that really reassured my mom and dad that their son wasn’t a failure as everyone had proclaimed.

What made you choose a career in tourism?
My love ,my passion for the bush is its animals and protecting them, but being young and clueless I didn’t even know how to start getting my career in order .Then one day I was lucky enough to sit down with a guide and find out how to get into the bush , the just of it is that a lot of life in the bush is who you know and building a good reputation ,so you need to start somewhere and for me my option was a guide ,where I get to learn about my natural surroundings ,spend time with the animals I love  ,educate people on conservation and slowly be able to work my way up to a point where I might get asked to help more on the animal front.

Where did you study and how long was your course?
I did my entry level course which is known as your FGASA level one ,with a company called Africa nature training(ANT) up in Limpopo where I was involved in a very basic 6 week course(due to my funds). But there are courses available from 6weeks to 3 years depending on how deep your pockets are. I then did a tracking course with Limpopo field guiding academy and all my firearms and walking qualifications with an amazing company Bhejane nature training based in Zululand.

Tell me more about your love for animals and how do you feel about people who abuse them?
My love has stemmed from a life time of being fascinated , awed and just in love with every animal I’ve come across , from pets at home to reptiles and birds I found in the garden , long walks and bike rides with my dad through our local nature reserve. But my real love was for the animals of the bush I saw on TV when I was little, watching lions, elephant, cheetah ECT on national geographic got me hooked and even at 4 or 5 I just wanted to be a Ranger! An animal in this day and age stands no chance against what us as people are capable of; they have no one to protect them as we protect ourselves and other humans so they are the ones suffering. My hair is on end and my blood boiling just trying to answer this question. Why do us as a “superior” race (I use that term lightly) have to torture and abuse another species for our pleasure and how is it right? I mean how is it right to hunt an elephant at 100m with a high powered rifle for a trophy and the thought that you are a “man” but shooting a bad person who is stealing your hard earned money after raping your wife can land you in jail…

You seem to have a very good relationship with your colleagues, why do you think it is important for people who work together to get along in the workplace…
In this industry where you live and work with the same people all day for weeks on end, sometimes without any outside influence you become very close, it’s not colleagues its family and that is exactly what it is like at bayete we are a big family that laugh and cry together, we fight yes but I could not ask for a better team to do our daily battles with. I also believe in a place where there is so much danger around every corner that trust has to be strong. if I’m catching a mamba for example from the lodge I want to know who ever is helping me trusts me with the snake and I can trust them to close the bucket or whatever it might be.

Where do you see the South African tourism in the next 10 years?
I think if more people in south Africa can pull fingers out their bums and see just how important eco tourism is in this country ( I mean I saw a tourist map of SA the other day and next to the flag and our national emblem , languages ect was a thing that said SA is best known for: its wild animals and natural spaces, that says it straight) then we are in for an amazing future for tourism but at the same time if poaching persists , and we keep destroying all these natural areas for urbanization soon we are just going to be like every other city locked county where you will only be able to see these animals in zoos , what’s going to differentiate us from Europe or USA where they will also be able to see the same animals in zoos without leaving their own country.

What has been the greatest highlight of your career as a game ranger thus far?
Being able to share every day and my life with our three elephants that has changed my life beyond words. Just feeling of peace with myself that only being in the bush can provide, I could make a list as every day brings new highlights( watching lion cubs play, leopards relax  ,elephant families all playing In a mud wallow) or just enjoying the most beautiful sunsets the world has to offer with some of the most incredible people.

What’s your favorite animal?
Every animal! But definitely elephants spark a deep love for me! they show emotion ,love ,their number one in life is family and protecting them , the mourn and cry ,they smile and play with each other and help when others are in need regardless of status or wealth and that I think we could learn a big lesson from. Entire families will put their lives on the line for one of their own species.

Do you fear any animal at all? If yes what animal is this?
Fear no. . . . I’m slightly creeped out by over sized stick insects, I won’t lie. I have a fear of climbing a tree and grabbing a large moving branch.

What’s the best advice you would give to aspiring game rangers?
Do the qualifications they ask for and try have one or two extras as a bonus. Once you find a nice lodge to work at stick it out for a bit, companies are looking for permanent employees they can trust .Our industry is known for having a large turnover of staff, most only making between 3 to 6 months before going elsewhere.

What do you enjoy most about working at Bayete Zulu?
The E.L.E.P.H.A.N.T.S duuuh.

How often do you get to see your family?
I try to get home once every two months if I can.

What’s your secret to having such a special way of communicating with animals?
Just a passion and an understanding for them. We are all animals and if you understand that you understand them . . .  if like most people now days put themselves above other species then your thought process will never reach that far.

Why do you think people visit Bayete Zulu?
A unique family opportunity, that isn’t on offer anywhere else and at a reasonable fee. Not many places that you can experience the bush with the whole family, in luxury at a middle class price. Then of course there is Rambo, Rachel and Jabulani who I believe are the stars of Zululand and the biggest attraction to our reserve.

If you were to convince a tourist to visit Bayete Zulu – in one word, what would you say?

What other fun things can people do when they visit Bayete?
We have guided walks available, elephant interaction , birding , close to the sea for diving ,whale watching ,near to the famous Isimangaliso wetland area where you can watch turtles nest, hippo and croc boat tours , reptile farms ,horse-back riding ,you name it Zululand can offer it.

Bayete Zulu is___where only special things happen!
Being a game ranger is___the best thing that has ever happened to me.
I wake up every day and___love my life , my job and the choices I have made.
Tourism is___the biggest thing South Africa has to offer this world, we should cherish it and what it means to us as a nation.

Thanks so much to the guys at 1stZulu Safaris for transporting us and the awesome Lauren Wallett for organising everything.
