Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera teases Geneva concept car

Wed, 15 Feb 2012

Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera has released a teaser image of its 2012 Disco Volante Concept, which will debut at next month's Geneva motor show.

In 1952, the Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring teamed up with Alfa Romeo to create a series of special-bodied cars to trial new technologies as well as being easily adaptable for racing.

Perhaps the most famous (and beautiful) was the 1952 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante (C52) which was based on the Alfa 1900, with both coupe and Spider convertible bodies produced.

This year, Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera is commemorating the 60th anniversary of these cars with a new Disco Volante. It is again based on a road-going Alfa Romeo, believed to be the 8C Competizione.

Touring is the latest of the Italian design houses to mark this year's Geneva show with a commemorative concept car, following the Bertone Nuccio and Pininfarina Cambiano.

Few other details of the Disco Volante, but CDN Live will bring you the latest on this and all the news when the Geneva motor show commences on 6 March.
