The Gumpert Tornante by Touring is a prototype built for the German sports car maker to be added to their existing Apollo. Combining ultra high performance with great comfort, it defines a new class of automobiles: Fast Tourer.
Elegance is part of our DNA
Known for building extremely high performance sports cars, Gumpert delegated the design of its newest model to Touring, whom they selected because of their history of creating the most elegant styles.
A tribute to craftsmanship
The Tornante replicates the original Touring Superleggera construction principle: a shape-defining space frame, over which are fixed the body panels, but in this instance they are made from carbon fibre. This superstructure is built onto a carbon fibre chassis.
Proof of concept
The proof of concept model is machined from a solid block of composite material.
At full size the dimensions are checked and evaluation of shapes, contours and clearances can begin.
The visual check
Visual checks confirm the project is moving in the right direction.
The final touch
Only when the designer is satisfied and the body has been finished and passed final inspection can the legendary Superleggera script be attached.
