Italian Coachbuilder to Release Its First Ever Mid-Engine Build
Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera Celebrating 95th Anniversary with the Release
Italian coachbuilder, Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera, has been in the business since 1926 and they have big plans to celebrate their 95th anniversary. They plan to unveil a mid-engine coupe but details have been kept under wraps until the big reveal in June.
According to MotorAuthority, the Milan-based company is said to be releasing a two-seater with a mid-engine – the first-ever mid-engine vehicle to come from the coachbuilder. The new car will likely be based on an Italian car. The design cues for the unreleased car will come from the Aero 3 and the Disco Volante – based on the Ferrari F12 and the Alfa Romeo 8C.
Touring says the car is in the final stages of production and has pegged a release of June 2021 – they have also said a more formal unveiling will be appropriated during the 2021 Monterey Car Week held at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering in mid-August.
While Touring tends to stick to a dozen production cars the chances are high that the new masterpiece will be available in the US. Last year, Touring launched the Sciadipersia – based on the Maserati GranTurismo, to the US market.
