Born to run
The Alfa Romeo Disco Volante by Touring is a two-seater coupé with front-central engine and rear-mounted transaxle drivetrain.
Inspired by a design icon
Showcased at 2012 Geneva Motor Show as a full scale style model, now coach built in the Touring atelier in Milan as a very limited series for discerning customers. It is inspired by the Touring designed Alfa Romeo C52 of 1952, a design icon so innovative that it influenced a number of celebrated sports and racing cars in the decades ahead.
Insensitive to wind
Following our founder’s credo of “Weight is the enemy, air resistance the obstacle” Disco Volante’s shape has been honed to be “insensitive to wind.”
With its light and stiff structure, the compact 4.7 litre, 450 PS V8 engine coupled to a sequential paddle-shift transaxle, with limited slip differential and double wishbones suspension, the package provides stunning performance together with precise, dynamic and proactive drive.
Our brand is “unique”
Built strictly to order, and only in very restricted numbers, each car is manufactured in accordance with the customer’s instructions. Colour choices, fittings, accessories and materials are all configured by the customer, who is encouraged to be adventurous in creating his own singular atmosphere, while being mentored by our designers.
Bringing it to life
Only by hand-forming the aluminium sheets is it possible to produce the intricate shapes of Disco Volante’s coachwork. That is why Touring’s designs are so different from series-produced cars.
In some areas of high stress or exposure, such as the lower valance, carbon fibre has been integrated, blending high skill with high tech.
Our craftsmen use the same tools and skills that have been in use for decades, but to assist them in their pursuit of perfection we now incorporate sophisticated electronic measuring and testing machines. Unlike hand-built thoroughbreds from the past our modern thoroughbreds are symmetrical from side to side!
An obsession for getting it right
The hand-built nature of the car means literally a hands-on process, so no detail gets overlooked. A constant series of checking, fettling and re-checking ensures flawless build quality.
