Alfa Romeo’s are special, just ask any car fan. Some of them don’t look astonishing, some don’t even function very well, but despite this people who know their cars love Alfa’s. Somehow these Italian machine are capable of provoking an emotional response from those who love driving. They are amongst the most soulful things you can possess and to use such a word to describe them highlights my point. Since when do people describe nuts and bolts as soulful? The Alfa Romeo Disco Volante by Touring is a masterclass in beautiful design. This work of art comes to geneva.
We have seen the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante by Touring before, but it is such an unusual car that its appearance at the geneva motor show is worth a mention. Its curvaceous body is being shown in a dark green which has something of a mystique about it. Highlighted in gold and proudly wearing an Alfa red grill, this car is really something special. Underneath its exquisite bodywork is an Alfa Romeo 8C chassis complete with V8 engine. Touring don’t just re-body the car, they tune it to perfection making this one of the ultimate GT cars. That 4.7 litre v8 engine can get the car from 0-62MPH in 4.7 seconds and the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante will go onto a top speed of 181MPH. This examples tanned leather interior compliments the colour scheme perfectly.
How much are they? Each is sold at an unspecified amount, but you know what they say… “If you have to ask how much it is, you likely can’t afford it.”
