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.
