Is it necessary to remind connoisseurs that the legendary 911 Targa , published by Ferdinand Porsche in 1963, had from the start a special flavor? Removable hard roof, engine in the back, key on the left of the steering wheel ... Its distinctive and precursor signs, as well as its technical performance, have made it one of the most daring sports cars of its time, ensuring a prestigious destiny who did not take a ride. These qualities are reminiscent of those of Berluti , which for more than a century has ensured the perpetuation of its winning duo, unique know-how and creative originality.

The fantasy of the giant shoebox

No wonder then that these two jewels of luxury find the time of a small madness that will leave dreamer more than a collector: the Porsche 911 Targa 2,4L "S" by Berluti. Without touching the original body and engine, to keep all the soul, this unique model has been technically refurbished before moving to the aesthetic moulinette, in the expert hands of the craftsmen of the house Berluti. A tailor-made customization that will have required some 500 hours of work, from upholstery to embossing through the patina of the legendary leather Venezia to the color "cocoa" recognizable among a thousand. The whole signed Berluti Paris on the lid of the glove box, with reminder B on the steering wheel and keychain.
