2012 Geneva Motor Show: Disco Volante Concept
Touring Superleggera has announced the staggering Disco Volante Concept at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. It is inspired by an old Alfa Romeo and features two seats and powerful V8 engine at the front.
The Disco Volante shares a lot of details from 8C Competizione like the engine, suspension and some other elements.
The mighty 4.7 liter V8 delivers 450PS (331 kW) and 470Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque. It is mated to an electronically controlled 6-speed sequential gearbox with paddle-shifters on the steering wheel. All that power is sent to the rear wheels through a LSD (limited slip differential) ensuring perfect traction at every conditions and even in sport driving. 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 292 km/h (181 mph).
We just can't imagine what will be the price of this car, because every one of these needs more than 4000 hours of highly skilled artisan and engineer work to be completed. Furhtermore, it needs an entire Alfa Romeo Competizione 8C for donor parts.
