2012 Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera Disco Volante Promo Video Released

Earlier this month, we shared images of the Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera Disco Volante 2012 Concept that debuted at the Geneva Auto Show. Drawing inspiration directly from the 1952 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante, the homage concept becomes reality as a limited quantity series will be produced for select aficionados.

Built upon a donor Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione body, the front-mid engine rear-wheel-drive italian sports car carries over powertrain and running gear including the 444-hp, 4.7 liter V8 which makes 347 lb.-ft. of torque, the 6-speed sequential gearbox, a limited slip differential, as well as front and rear double-wishbone suspension.

Virtually identical to the 8C Competizione, the Disco Volante 2012 reaches 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds and attains a top speed of about 181 mph.

Touring Superleggera will leave the interior of the 8C Competizione untouched but if requested by clients, personalization to meet tastes and preferences will be eagerly accommodated.

Each donor 8C Competizione will undergo an extensive build process that takes approximately 4,000 hours under the hands of highly skilled craftsmen and engineers of Milan. This translates to a delivery time of eight months after the reception of a donor 8C. As for its price, if you have to ask (and if you don’t already have an 8C), it is more than likely that you will not be able to afford it.

Check out the promotional video of the Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera Disco Volante 2012 below.
