THE “MONCENISIO”, DERIVED FROM THE NEW PORSCHE CAYMAN S, WILL BE AVAILABLE TO CUSTOMERS FROM NOVEMBER IN ONLY 20 EXAMPLES
Milan, June 7, 2013 – Pirelli, which has traditionally worked closely alongside bespoke car designers, will equip the latest product from Studiotorino: the limited edition Moncenisio, derived from the Porsche Cayman S.
The new “Fine Sports Car” from the northern Italian firm will be available from November on P Zero tyres in 235/35R20 size at the front and 265/35R20 at the back.
Pirelli’s most performance-oriented tyres are a perfect match for the sporting and safety attributes of the Moncenisio. The transformation of the new car into an exclusive limited edition has come under the responsibility of designer Daniele Gaglione, completing the style and line-up of the previous projects carried out by Studiotorino: the RK Spider and RK Coupe from 2005 and 2006.
The new car’s name is derived from one of the best-known Alpine passes of the Piemonte region in northern Italy. It’s famous not only for the historic ‘Susa-Moncenisio’ race, which is traditionally recognised as the world’s first hillclimb, but also for the particular blue colour of the lake: a colour that the Moncenisio has been inspired by.
The new car will be produced in 20 numbered examples and can be personalised to suit the desires and tastes of each individual customer.
