Based on the 2014 Porsche Cayman S, Italian coachbuilder StudioTorino will soon unveil its latest project, the Moncenisio.

In 2006, StudioTorino built the RK Coupe, a sports car that was based on the previous-generation Porsche Cayman and packed 440 hp. This time around, on the way to the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, the team at StudioTorino began thinking of a project to replace the RK Coupe, and the Moncenisio was born.

Though details are light, it will make its official debut on March 21 at the National Automobile Museum of Turin and production will be limited to just 19 units. The Cayman S will go through an extensive overhaul inside and out including an aerodynamic body kit with several components made from carbon fiber, a new set of 20-inch wheels and will be offered in seven different shades. StudioTorino also announced that the Moncenisio will be priced at around $180,000.

For that price tag, look for some added performance as well.
