Italian design firm Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera made headlines at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show when it debuted the gorgeous Alfa Romeo Disco Volante. The Disco Volante (Italian for ‘Flying Saucer’), has the kind of looks that can stop you in your tracks, but Carrozzeria Touring has managed to top it with the debut of the Disco Volante Spider at this year’s Geneva show.
The debut of the Disco Volante Spider, which is based on the 1 of 500 Alfa Romeo 8C Spider, marks the 90th anniversary of the coachbuilder. Only seven will be made and each will be painted in a different color. As you can see in the video above, the first of seven has been graced with a rather attractive ‘Blue Ceruleo’ hue, which is complimented by a black interior.
Carrozzeria Touring didn’t release technical details on the Disco Volante Spider, but it’s likely that it retains the 8C Spider’s 444 horsepower 4.7-liter V8 and six-speed automatic transmission. That would give it a theoretical top speed of 180 miles per hour, but you’d be best to drive the car as slow as possible so passersby could drink in its curves and applaud your astute taste in automobiles.
