 |  Mar 06 2013, 2:31 PM

Touring Superleggera makes some very custom vehicles, and this model, the Disco Volante, apparently takes 4,000 man hours to complete. That’s a long time to make what essentially looks like a Cayman on top of an Alfa Romeo 8C.

That’s not to say it’s particularly ugly, the Disco Volante uses classic front-engine, rear-wheel drive proportions. Under the long hood of the bespoke vehicle is the same 4.7-liter V8 that’s used by the Alfa Romeo 8C. Thanks to 444-horsepower, the Disco Volante dances its way to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds, and tops the speedometer at 181 mph.

For those not up to par with their Italian car history, the Touring Superleggera Disco Volante references the gorgeous Alfa Romeo C52 “Disco Volante.” Take a look at the whole gallery below.
