Carrozzeria Touring was founded 80 years ago, but in the past years they haven’t brought anything new. Anyway, the company is about to make a come back with the launch of the new Touring Superleggera Concept at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on Saturday April 26.
In the past, the latest Carrozzeria creations were likewise traditionally presented to the well-heeled public at the Concorso on the shores of Lake Como.
"Apart from the historic vehicles and concept cars at the Concorso, a special exhibition traditionally held at Villa Erba on the Sunday is dedicated to one outstanding designer or carmaker. This year, the exhibition looks back on the 80-year history of Italy’s Touring Superleggera coachbuilders. As well as a retrospective featuring cars from Touring’s heyday, visitors can expect to see a line-up of automobiles from the Registro Internazionale Touring Superleggera. But the brand will not merely be presenting its past heritage at the Concorso: the future is to be unveiled as well. The coachbuilders promise to reveal a sports car with thoroughbred Touring DNA as a world premiere on the Sunday."
