ALFA ROMEO DISCO VOLANTE SPYDER
The Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spyder is a steet legal two-seater open top car, coach built on demand of discerning customers in a limited run of maximum seven units.
It is inspired by the 1952 Alfa Romeo C52 designed by Touring and nicknamed “Disco Volante” (Italian for Flying Saucer) on the eve of the space age and extra-terrestrial sightings. The public embraced the Disco Volante and its revolutionary streamlined contours, though the car’s ascendancy went far further: the bodywork was so innovative that it influenced numerous celebrated sports cars of the decades to come.
Chosen by Alfa Romeo to mark its centenary celebration with a bronze sculpture now displayed in Milan, the C52 Disco Volante is one of the most significant models in motor car history.© B.L. (creativevillage) / Carzzeria Touring Superleggera s.r.l.
As mind-blowing in design as its ancestor, The Disco Volante Spyder stretches the concept of open top car to extreme boundaries, though delivering an unexpected degree of comfort and riding quality. It is a bold interpretation of the open top car, fully devoted to the pleasure of riding with wind tousling one’s hair.
Endorsed by Alfa Romeo and proudly bearing the Alfa Romeo badge, it is based on the rolling chassis and drivetrain of the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione Spider.
