The Italian based design and coachbuilding company Touring Superleggera has recently placed into the spotlights, for the second time, the Disco Volante Concept, by releasing a promotional video with the model.
After being officially presented to the public at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Touring Superleggera Disco Volante is highlighted once again, by releasing a promotional video with it. According to the manufacturer, the Disco Volante was inspired by the 1952 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante, being a modern interpretation of the 60-year old vehicle. Touring Superleggera says that the Disco Volante Concept will be produced in a very limited series in order to be bought by collectors.
The Touring Superleggera Disco Volante is coming in a front-mid engine and rear-wheel drive layout, being powered by the same engine as the 8C Competizione, the 4.7 liter V8 unit, which is developing a total output of 444 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 470 Nm (347 lb-ft). The engine is mated to an electronically controlled six-speed sequential transmission with paddle-shifters and limited slip differential. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration takes 4.2 seconds and the model has a top speed of 292 km/h (181 mph). Each unit of the Disco Volante will require more than 4,000 hours to be made and more details about it will be released close to its launch.
