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.

This Alfa Romeo 8C-R Tazio Is Pure Hypercar Material

One of the best design studies we’ve seen all year

The name Alfa Romeo has always been tightly tied to the world of motorsport. The 8C-R Tazio design study fully reflects that bond, as its name itself is a tribute to Italian race driver Tazio Nuvolari, who manhandled grand prix Alfas back when you could hardly find faster vehicles on the planet.

At the same time, the Alfa Romeo 8C-R Tazio is both a nod back to one of the most intricate designs to come out of the brand’s studios - the Disco Volante – and a celebration of the company’s 110th anniversary. And the best thing about it: it was imagined by an independent designer who’s had a long-lasting crush on Alfa Romeo.
