Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Prototype. Back inside early 1950s, your original Alfa Romeo Disco Volante was just about the most radical cars of its time. The title, which meant “flying saucer” within Italian, was supposed to spell out the flattened as well as aerodynamic shape of the vehicle. Only four Disco Volante prototypes had been ever made. Your cars were using the Alfa Romeo 1900, and the curvaceous bodywork has been hand-formed by craftsmen in the coachbuilding company Carrozzeria Touring. Carrozzeria Touring ceased to exist in 1966, and for nearly 40 decades it seemed the actual company identify would be confined to the history books. Then throughout 2006 the firm was reborn beneath the title Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. Since after that they’ve been busy making and designing many world class supercars. Which include the Maserati A8 GCS, Gumpert Tornante, Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio Fastback as well as the Bentley Continental Flying Star. Earlier this particular week they announced their intention to reinvent the actual Disco Volante, and unveil your concept at the 2012 Geneva Motor Present in March.
The actual 2012 Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera Disco Volante is said to be based on the Alfa Romeo 8c Competizione. If it’s, that implies it’ll be greater than likely powered by the 8C’s 450 horsepower 4.Several litre V8.
