Only Italy could design and build something this beautiful.
Officially unveiled last March at Geneva, Alfa Romeo has now officially endorsed the gorgeous Alfa Disco Volante that was built by Touring Superleggera. What does that mean exactly? Limited production is currently being planned. Based in Milan, the coachbuilder's striking design was inspired by the 1952 Alfa Romeo 1900 C52 "Disco Volante." The modern day bespoke version is based on the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, yet another fine example of beautiful Italian design.
The Disco Volante retains the 8C's 450-horsepower 4.7-liter V8, but the car's body has become something else entirely. It'll go from 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds. While the body is new, the Disco Volante also shares the 8C's windshield, dashboard, instruments, pedals, steering wheel and 20-inch alloys. The interior is covered in leather upholstery, black Alcantara trim and few other unique touches throughout. Each Disco Volante will be built to order since each one requires 4,000 man hours and six months to complete. It's also possible for 8C owners to have their car converted into a Disco Volante, and pricing will depend on the customized specs.
