2012 Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera Disco Volante Concept


This is the first Alfa Romeo since the 1970's that I think looks great. I like older Alfa Romeos. The 1750/2000 GTV and the Alfasud ti in particular.

This is a concept based on 8C Competizione mechanicals, with styling from the 1952 Alfa Romeo C52 Disco Volante concept car (which some think was the inspiration for the E-Type).

I adore the straight cut of the front fender openings, the line of the bonnet, the blistered rear quarter panels, and the way the cabin tapers. And for the first time in ages the Alfa grill doesn't look out of place.

The only mistake I can see are the telephone dial wheels.
