Touring Superleggera Disco Volante

Touring Superleggera Disco Volante

  The Touring Superleggera Disco Volante was unveiled in Geneva in 2013 and features a 4.7-liter V-8 engine with 450 horsepower and a 0-to-60 time of 4.2 seconds.

Last year at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Carrozzeria Touring unveiled a very cool interpretation of the 1952 Alfa Romeo C52 Disco Volante. Since then, the company changed its name to Touring Superleggera and for this year’s 2013 Geneva Motor Show the company prepared a production version of the concept.

A very strange move, considering that last year the company announced this was just a styling exercise and that it lacked any running components. Just like with the concept version, the production version Disco Volante will be based on the 8C Competizione, but it will receive a few design changes, carbon-fiber components and aluminum panels.

The model will be built on request and will be limited to only 500 units. Each unit takes approximately six months to complete. Also, the company announced that each unit will be built as a one-off edition, as customers will have the possibility to customize the car by their own heart desires.
