Studiotorino Moncenisio based on Porsche Cayman S (981)

Article by Andrew Christian, on May 14, 2014

If you think that a Porsche Cayman is not suitable for you and want something even more special, the Studiotorino Moncenisio is the car for you. Based on the Porsche Cayman S Type 981, the new sports car is a tribute to Italian motor sports, the Susa-Moncenisio race a.k.a. the first hill-climb competition in the world.

For those who don’t know, the first race at Susa-Moncenisio took place on July 27, 1902 and was won by Vicenzo Lancia in a Fiat 24 hp. So, if you want a piece of history, you’d better hurry up as Studiotorino will only build 19 units of the Moncenisio coupe, each priced from 145,000 euros.

Still, the price is in addition to costs incurred by the client to provide and deliver the vehicle that wants to be transformed. The vehicle you see in the photos is dedicated in memory of Francesco Stola, father of Alfredo Stola, the founder of Studiotorino.

According to the official press release, the design of the Moncenisio was inspired by the 1963 Porsche Type 904 and continues the design of Studiotorino’s RK Coupe. Theblue color developed for the exterior and some parts of the interior recalls the reflection of the sky upon the lake at the summit of the mountain pass.

Studiotorino didn’t offer any specs of the vehicle, but we do know that the standard model is powered by a 3.4-liter flat six boxer engine that develops 325 hp (293 kW). Bolted to a PDK transmission and equipped with the Sport Chrono package, the Cayman S accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds, while top speed is limited at 280 km/h or 174 mph.

MONCENISIO COACHBUILT IN THE ITALIAN TRADITION

Studiotorino presents today, in the area dedicated to contemporary design at the National Automobile Museum of Turin, its new coachbuilt
model the "MONCENISIO".

Derived from the Porsche Cayman S Type 981, this rare built to order coupé will be available a limited production run of 19 numbered specimens.

Its name is a tribute to Italian motor sports: the Susa-Moncenisio race, the first hill-climb competition in the world.
The first race took place July 27, 1902 and was won by Vincenzo Lancia in a Fiat
24 Hp.

The MONCENISIO maintains the original structure, frame, mechanics, engine, emissions, safety and reliability characteristics of the vehicle of origin.

Traditional Turin school methods of manual modeling and styling of the body, painting and interior trimming will be utilized.

The starting price for a MONCENISIO coachbuilt is € 145,00 in addition to costs incurred by the client to provide and deliver the vehicle to be transformed complete with license plates and all pertaining documents. The above price excludes all taxes. Considering an international clientele, taxes have been excluded in order to accommodate each country's tax rate and tax regulations. The base price includes a long list of features and standard options. Visit www.-studiotorino.com and click on "Buy It" for details regarding purchase, features, and custom options.

The prototype presented today is identified with the code name S.F. 1/1. It is dedicated in memory of Francesco Stola, father of Alfredo Stola, founder of Studiotorino. Clients and the press will be able to test drive and appreciate the MONCENISIO and why not on its namesake the Moncenisio Alpine Pass?

The MONCENISIO'S styling is the work of architect Daniele Gaglione, long time friend of the Stola family, who has generously given his name to the design work. The styling was inspired by the 1963 Porsche Type 904 and continues as well as evolves the styling of Studiotorino's 2006 RK Coupé. More contemporary, clean and dynamic lines characterize the MONCENISIO.

The particular shade of blue developed for the body and part of the interior of the prototype recalls the reflection of the sky upon the lake at the summit of the mountain pass. With an altitude of 2083m the Moncenisio Pass can be found just one hour away from Turin and connects Italy with France along the ancient "Via Francigena".

With the new MONCENISIO, Studiotorino wishes to share with its clients and fans its passion for rare sports cars and to continue the legacy of a now 95-yearold SFamily tradition of coach building.

With this press release we wish to thank our "Partner Sponsors" with whom we have had a close working relationship for many years. Together lead actors, each one with its own expertise, in the research of excellence.
