Alfa Romeo Disco Volante by Touring [video]

Posted on 25 February, 2014


To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the legendary Alfa Romeo 1900 C52 Disco Volante, Touring Superleggera has created an all-new Alfa Romeo Disco Volante based on Alfa 8C.

It is powered by a 4.7 liter V8 with 450HP (330 kW) and 480Nm (355 lb-ft). 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 292 km/h (181 mph). It is coupled with a 6-speed, sequential transaxle gearbox with electronic control and paddle-shift gear selection. In combination with the limited-slip differential and braking system with large diameter, ventilated discs, they deliver excellent driving dynamics and exciting ride.

Alfa Romeo Disco Volante boasts a combination of innovation, emotion and aerodynamic characteristics. The interior features LED lighting, aeronautical-inspired touches on the dashboard, instruments and controls. There is also bespoke leather upholstery and seats wrapped with black Alcantara.

Disco Volante has lightweight bodywork thanks to the use of a combination of aluminium and carbon fibre.
