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 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. 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 “Family” tradition of coach building.
