"Modus Vivendi" is an exhibit organized by Cav. Rodolfo Gaffino, director of the Turin National Automobile Museum, presenting 14 automobiles that have become legendary for having made special journeys.
Every car has an exciting story to tell of travels to new and different worlds far away from home.
Our Moncenisio is perhaps the only "prototype" to have reached the Steel Globe in Nordkapp in the dead of winter.
Just For the record, the northernmost point in the world passable on paved roads was reached on Jan. 30, 2015.

The theme of the meeting with Adolfo Orsi was inspiring. The topic of the thesis presented by Davide De Martinis, conceived and proposed in conjunction with Studiotorino, was: THE NEW MASERATI MOTORCYCLE m.y. 2016.
Not many people know that MASERATI produced motorcycles between 1947 and 1960. A meeting with someone so influential in the history of MASERATI was not an opportunity for Alfredo and Maria Paola Stola to miss in their roles as research supervisors for the thesis.
The aim of the thesis was two-folds: to analyze the history of the MASERATI MOTO and to imagine what its latest model would look like today if it had not gone out of production.

01February 8, 2016. The POST LAUREA DEGREE (IAAD) design by Studiotorino with Davide De Martinis. Project tutors for the style were Paolo Spada and Emanuele Battista of Spadaconcept. Research supervisors were Alfredo and Maria Paola Stola.

Davide De Martinis obtained his Laurea Degree in Transportation Design on July 9, 2015 at the Italian University For Design IAAD, Torino. Luca Bar and Marco Vendrame were his thesis advisors.
Paolo Spada and his colleague Emanuele Battista of Spadaconcept were his tutors on behalf of Studiotorino during his “Post-Laurea” period. They dedicated their passion and even some of their free time.
The name given to the imaginary re-invented motorcycle was VCM 322. It was chosen as a nod to the historic MASERATI address in Modena at Viale Ciro Menotti 322.

04Paolo Spada and Davide De Martinis during a creative moment.05The first drafts of a Maserati motorcycle inspired by the classic bikes of the 50’s and 60’s.

The VCR 322 DNA, is that of the 50cc motorcycle Type T2 Super Sport m.y. 1956, despite the great difference in engine capacity. The frame, the shock absorber details, the front fender, the color and the graphics have also been our references. There are also some automotive tributes, such as the holes on the frame and the plexiglass front lamp fairing pipes from the Birdcage Tyoe 61, the triple exhausts inspired by the iconic elements on the Quattroporte front fenders and wheel spokes from the GranTurismo.
The engine architecture, a 1000cc V6 90 degrees, it is not accidental, It is an homage to Ing. Giulio Alfieri, Maserati technical director between 1955 and 1975.
It took inspiration from SM engine employed on the Maserati Merak and later on the 1000 V6 Laverda, when in the 1977 Alfieri was consultant in this famous motorcycle company.

March 1, 2016 at the 86th Geneva International Motor Show. The LYKAN in red livery by W. Motors was presented at the MAGNA stand for the first time in Europe since its cinematographic appearance in Fast and Furious 7.
For the hypercar protagonist of the successful 2015 Universal Studios production, MAGNA ITALIA produced some of the stunt cars in 2013. Most of these were subsequently destroyed during the dangerous scenes. STUDIOTORINO was involved as an advisor for the restoration and finalization of the prototype for MAGNA STEYR ITALIA.

The late Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Jason Statham filmed all the Lykan scenes at the studios in Atlanta except for the jumps between the three skyscrapers which took place in Abu Dhabi.
Paul Walker’s brother doubled for him in the jump scenes. The film was delayed one year due to the tragic loss of the actor.
Vin Diesel who plays Dominic Toretto says behind the scenes: “This is the first film that Dom is caught in a car like that.”
In the first scene with the Lykan, Paul Walker says: “There’s seven of these things in the world and this guy keeps it locked in a vault.”
