Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera Sciadipersia is a Maserati GranTurismo in another Italian suit

Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera is back on the spotlight with its latest bespoke creation – the new Superleggera Sciadipersia. Set to be unveiled at 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the new Superleggera Sciadipersia coupe is set to light up the flare of excitement anew a few years after it launched the Disco Volante Spyder.

Essentially, the new Superleggera Sciadipersia is a conversion model that practically hides an appealing Maserati GranTurismo in Touring Superleggera-created clothing. The mechanicals are pretty much Maserati, but the exterior has been comprehensively revised, to the point that the Sciadipersia is hardly recognizable as one. Inside, the Sciadipersia is virtually identical to the Maserati GranTurismo, although some upgrades were implemented.

To create the new Superleggera Sciadipersia, potential customers have first to supply a Maserati GranTurismo to Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera before any kind of conversion is started. However, interested customers need to act fast since Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera will only do up to 10 conversions of the Superleggera Sciadipersia.

Touring Superleggera launches Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spyder to mark 90th anniversary

Touring Superleggera is celebrating its 90 years of existence by unveiling a new two-seater open top car at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show – the new Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spyder. Derived from the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione Spider, the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spyder is inspired by the 1952 Alfa Romeo C52 that is also on display on the Touring stand in Geneva, thanks to Museo Nazionale del 'Automobile "Giovanni Agnelli" of Turin.

On its part, the Museo is planning in autumn 2016 a retrospective exhibition that covers the entire history of Touring. By the time it was heading to the 1953 New York motor show, the C52 was already dubbed as “Disco Volante,” which is an Italian term for “Flying Saucer.”

The Disco Volante proved to be appealing to the public with its streamlined contours. Not only that, its innovative bodywork had come to inspire a number of iconic sports cars in the succeeding decades. Now, the C52 Disco Volante has been picked by Alfa Romeo to celebrate its 100-year celebration with a bronze sculpture. Just like the Touring Superleggera, the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spyder features lines and volumes whose creation had been guided by a certain functional requirement -- the new car should be "insensitive to wind."

Touring Superleggera Disco Volante gets a new paint scheme for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Back in 2013 at the Geneva Motor Show, Italian coachbuilder Touring Superleggera unveiled the production version of its Disco Volante Concept. The vehicle was inspired by the iconic 1952 Alfa C52 Disco Volante and it was so exclusive that it needed 4000 man-hours to be built over the course of six months.

For the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Touring Superleggera is bringing a new version of the Disco Volante, this time with a different paint scheme, featuring a green color with golden accents and wheels. Moreover, the new version comes with red taillights instead of the white ones featured on the original version.

The interior was also updated and now the Disco Volante features brown leather and Alcantara. Still, the interior is fully customizable and Touring Superleggera can make it pink if you really want to!

Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera is attending the 2013 Salon Privé

Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera is coming back to Salon Privé for this year. Touring Superleggera is famously known as the first custom car builder of an Alfa Romeo and an Isotta Fraschini made in 1928. With over 80 years of automotive expertise and thanks to its Superleggera (super lightweight) construction system patented in 1936, the Touring brand has become synonymous with elegance, quality and technical innovation.

For this year’s Salon Privé, Touring Superleggera’s exhibit will feature the Bentley Continental Flying Star. Touring Superleggera plans to build only 19 Flying Stars, each of which will be built in close coordination with their owner. Using their untainted expertise, Touring spends around 4,000 hours to complete each of the Bentley Continental Flying Star at its workshop near Milan.

Each of the Flying Stars will be made according to the specification set by the customer -- all to the highest bespoke standards. For those who want to attend the 2013 Salon Privé, they can get their tickets by visiting www.salonprivelondon.com or by calling the Ticket Hotline on 0808 100 2205.

Italian coachbuilder Touring Superleggera brought the production version of the Disco Volante Concept at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Inspired by the 1952 Alfa C52 Disco Volante, the 2013 Disco Volante needs 4000 man-hours to be built over the course of about six months, which makes it more exclusive.

Using an Alfa 8C chassis, the Disco Volante is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 engine delivering 450 hp and bolted to a six-speed sequential transaxle gearbox with electronic control and paddle-shift gear selection. This means that it can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 181 mph or 291 km/h.

Moreover, the Disco Volante uses a limited-slip differential and a state-of-the-art braking system with large diameter, ventilated discs. Regarding the design, honestly to tell you we are speechless, the Disco Volante looks incredible and the headlights borrowed from the Ferrrari 599 GTB are quite interesting on this sporty coupe. The interior is fully customizable and features high-quality leather and Alcantara.
