The Moncenisio has a unique, special body, maintaining all the original safety elements of the chassis and mechanics, the original engine guarantees compliance with emissions regulations.
The modelling, detail construction, painting and upholstery of the interior was all done by hand in the classic Turin tradition.
Historical partnerships with the Secoli family, Gavina and Gatto made all these activities a skillful blend of technique and craftsmanship.
The style was deliberately inspired by the Porsche 904, as drafted by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, the knowledge of which was picked up by Alfredo between 1999 and 2000 whilst having had the honor of working, with his team of Stola spa modellers, on the Cayenne project, in Turin and Zell Am See.
June 2014, on the Moncenisio pass for the first test in the mountains after the snow thaw.Here is the reason for the name Moncenisio: the exterior with the color of the lake and the interior with the colours of the pastures. The bold trim and colors were created by Maria Paola Stola.
Before the official presentation in Turin, Moncenisio was previewed on March 11, 2014 in the presence of Wolfgang Hatz Director of Research and Development and designers Grant Larson, Matthias Kulla, Martin Khal and Conrad Hummel at the Porsche Styling Center in Weissach.

In January 2015, the Moncenisio partook in a test drive around the arctic circle in Scandinavia, between the regional capital of Rovaniemi, Finland and NordKapp in Norway.
1589 km were travelled, traversed on icy roads with temperatures often below -30 degrees and made even more hazardous with the presence of reindeer and elk.
It is possible to suppose that the Monceniso is the only "One Off" to have reached the northern most paved road in the world, in winter.
The journey's end is marked by a monument depicting a terrestrial steel globe.
