Disco Volante 2013 preview
At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show Touring Superleggera will unveil the Disco Volante Touring 2013, a one-off based on the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione and derived from the design study presented in 2012.
The two-seater GT was developed by Touring Superleggera in just 10 months and features aluminum and carbon fiber body panels mounted on the 8C Competizione chassis.
Penned by designer Louis de Fabribeckers, the Disco Volante pays homage to the 1952 Alfa Romeo 1900 C 52 nicknamed Disco Volante (‘Flying Saucer’).
The original concept was unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The production version will be built to order in a limited series of just six units.
For more information on the concept check the report published by Classic Driver magazine, which documents the entire prototype construction process, which takes approximately 4,000 man hours and six months.
