Recall fantastic super compartment was created last year to mark the 50th anniversary of the legendary Alfa Romeo C52 Disco Volante – an ultra-light and aerodynamically flawless sports car in 1952.
The new “flying saucer” delicately refers to the appearance of his great ancestor, yet organically adopts the ideology of construction of modern sports cars. Disco Volante Touring chassis is taken unchanged from Alfa Romeo 8C Competition, as the engine – a 4.7- liter V8, which develops 450 horsepower and 480 Newton meters of torque. Double rear-drive “Gran Turismo” accelerates to 100 km / h in 4.2 seconds and a top speed – 290 km / h.
The building occupies a Disco Volante 4000 man-hours of skilled labor and all operations, including forming aluminum body panels are made only by hand. That’s why Carozzeria Touring will collect super compartment only after an individual order, but what about the price, to be honest, we’re just afraid to ask. But to see the enchanting Disco Volante 2012 on the road – this is, of course, will be a real celebration of the heart.
