Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spider Stuns in Blue

6

Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera is back at the Geneva Motor Show with a stunning new version of the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante.  

The brand first showed the Disco Volante at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show as a coupe and now it has returned in 2016 with a convertible variant.

Based on the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider, the car uses a 4.7-liter V8 to send 443 horsepower and 353 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox controlled by paddle shifters. A limited-slip differential, performance brakes and a double-wishbone suspension are also included to make sure the car can perform.

But really, this car is all about the way it looks and how exclusive it will be. The company says that only seven will be produced in total, most of which are likely already spoken for. All seven cars will be feature a unique color, with the first example shown off in Blue Ceruleo.

Inside, a black and brown color scheme is used with Connolly leather trim.

  • Nope. Absolutely not. Disagree. Looks hideous. The waistline makes the hood lines look overly bulgy and the cutoff across the top of the front wheel well makes it look like the Mach 5. The back end is a mess. This design is a train wreck.

    Well said! I would rather be seen in a Honda Element.

  • Chris Daigle

    Not the ugliest car ever, but they can do much better. The 8C was a nice car.

  • Wow. That’s a rather low bar you’re setting, Oldman 🙂 LOLZ in the extreme ;D I’ll call your Element and raise you an Aztec, or is that going too far 😀

  • AK Oldman

    Yeah, the Element is kinda low. However, You’re correct, the Aztec is going too far, though not by much. This Alpha looks like it was modeled off of a 1950s era futuristic car design. It might have looked oK back then, but not now.

    For such a small car, look at how low it is sitting on the ground.
