The model

The Porsche Cayenne Transsyberia derives from the street version of the SUV of the Stuttgart house, specifically set up for off-road racing. Only 26 units were made to participate in the Transsiberia Rally, an offroad race starting in Moscow and arriving in Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia, a route of over 6,600 kilometers. By regulation, the car had to be standard; therefore the Cayenne did not undergo any particular technical transformations. The engine remains the 4.8-liter, 385-hp 8-cylinder, the same as the road version, with a specific adaptation to the injection to be able to operate even with a low percentage of ethanol (up to a quarter). The tires were replaced with specific Michelin for the rough terrain, with a unique tread, able to guarantee traction on all surfaces. From the mechanical point of view, careful work was done on the transmission: self-locking differential and reduced gears on the axle transmission, while the gearbox remained the same as the standard version: the six-speed Tiptronic S with a different final ratio. The electronics include Porsche Active Suspension Management and Porsche Traction Management, in this case flanked by Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, preset to a special offroad mode that allows the Cayenne to cross water obstacles of up to 76 cm. In the parts most exposed to contact with the ground, the car was equipped with a bumper sled on the underbody and steel flooring. To traverse deep waterways a snorkel was installed on the roof; along with a battery of additional lights, front winch, rear winch and a sports exhaust. The interior of the car is reduced to the essentials, to save weight and make room for the double spare wheels and two spare tanks that occupy the space of the rear seat, while the front seats have been replaced by two Recaro bucket seats, with four-point belts. Of the 26 Cayenne Transsyberia made, 16 took part in the 2007 edition; of these, two representing Italy: the official one of the Italian branch with the crew Antonio "Tonino" Tognana-Carlo Cassina and that of the Centro Porsche Brescia led by the duo Angelo Lancelotti and Biagio Capolupo. Italian cars were presented at the "Festival nazionale della letteratura e giornalismo di Viaggio" in May 2007 in Padua, two months before the start of the race.

The car

It is one of the 16 specimens that took part in the 2007 edition of the Transsyberia Rally and one of the two cars driven by Italian crews; in this case it is that of Centro Porsche Brescia, driven by Angelo Lancelotti and Biagio Capolupo. The car came in 29th place; could have been better classified, but due to frequent punctures, the crew lost position. The car covered a total of 12,440 km and was never used after the race. It comes from the cars chosen for the Saottini Collection. It has always been cared for by the Centro Porsche Brescia and is still fully set up and painted in the serigraphy with which ran the 2007 Transsyberia Rally. The car is equipped with additional headlights on the roof and is complete with the equipment (tent and so on) provided by the original Transsyberia equipment. The car is accompanied by a German delivery note for the car to Porsche Italy.
