Collector car broker Auxietre & Schmidt recently posted a listing for a 2017 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spyder by Touring. With a name like that, you are right to assume it’s a beautiful Italian convertible sports car, but that is only the tip of the custom-built iceberg. This Disco Volante Spyder is the last one in a limited production of seven ever built by famed coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. Underneath the Disco Volante’s art-in-motion sculpted bodywork is the DNA from an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione Spider.
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spyder uses a Ferrari 4.7-liter naturally-aspirated V8 to produce a healthy 450 horsepower controlled by a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Touring took great inspiration for the car’s name and design from the 1952 Alfa Romeo 1900 C5S Disco Volante. The 2017 re-imagining took the 1952 smooth floating-cloud body and gave it a modern edge. Alfa Romeo Disco Volante’s 2017 styling can steal the spotlight from supercars with even the most outlandish vinyl wraps. The next owner of this rare Touring Alfa Romeo Disco Volante Spyder will be able to go on a grand tour adventure with a bespoke luggage set and a custom car that comes included with purchase.
