The Sugarloaf Cable Car is a cableway in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It moves between Praia Vermelha and the inselberg Sugarloaf Mountain. It stops at Morro da Urca (at 722 feet (220 m)) on its way up and down. It reaches the summit of the 1,299-foot (396 m) mountain.
The cableway was envisioned by the engineer Augusto Ferreira Ramos in 1908. He sought support from well-known figures of Rio de Janeiro's high society to promote its construction. It was opened in 1912
