How Can You Not Love The Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spider?

2016 Geneva Motor Show / Comments

Just look at the thing.

The Geneva Motor Show has been a dream come true with extremely fast and expensive supercars. But what about the coachbuilders that are looking to create masterpieces that look gorgeous from any angle, are outrageously expensive and aren't meant to be driven fast? That's where Touring Superleggera comes in. The Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spider is the roofless variant of the regular Disco Volante and we think it's the better-looking one, too. With only seven models being built, this is the closest people will get to the Volante Spider.

Press pictures of the car don't do it any justice. Just look at the beautiful thing in person. It has curves, flowing lines and looks good from any angle. Unlike other supercars, the performance figures of the Volante Spider don't matter that much. It's powered by a Maserati-derived 4.7-liter V8 engine. The Volante Spider puts out 444 hp and 345 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels through a rear-mounted six-speed sequential automatic gearbox. If one of the seven lucky owners were to smash the throttle, the car would scream to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 180 mph. That's plenty fast enough for a car that looks this good.
