Touring AERO 3 world premiére at Salon Privé 2020
September’s 15th Annual Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance, held at historic Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill, has seen the launch of Touring Superleggera’s exciting new AERO 3. The latest in a design concept that hails back to their historic role in developing the science of automotive aerodynamics, the AERO 3 perfectly reflects the prime directive of Carlo Felice Bianchi Anderloni, son of the co-founder and company saviour for decades: weight is the enemy, air resistance the obstacle.
Following Anderloni’s principles in fact made Touring synonymous with lightweight construction techniques, and wind-cheating bodies with tapering profiles. Employing research from their own wind tunnel, the first used by any major coachbuilder, cars clothed in Touring’s streamlined fashion excelled in competition for various European manufacturers and earned them a solid reputation for combining aerodynamic efficiency, speed and style.
