Touring Superleggera is an Italian coachbuilder who has been designing and manufacturing exclusive cars since 1926. In this fall 2020, the Milanese company presents its new project, the Touring Aero 3, which will only be produced in 15 units. It is a modern interpretation of streamlined sports cars in the 1930s, and under the carbon-fiber body, which took 5,000 hours to paint, there is an “Italian supercar.”
To design this model, Touring Superleggera started from scratch. You may have recognized it; this model was made from a Ferrari F12berlinetta. Yes, Touring Superleggera transformed Ferrari’s supercar to design a completely exclusive model.
The Aero 3 is equipped with a 6.3L V12 naturally aspirated engine, producing 720 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 689 Nm of torque. The engine is quite similar to the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. It is still associated with the F1 dual-clutch or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission located in the transaxle position.
It reaches the estimated maximum speed of 211 mph (340 km/h) and acceleration 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 3.1 seconds.
Its style is different, however, starting at the back with that shark fin, which is only there for aesthetic reasons. The rear side has been largely modified; moreover, the bezel has disappeared; we hope that Touring Superleggera has not forgotten to add a reversing camera. The front of the Touring Aero 3 is less extraordinary, but you’ll notice that the company has designed a grille that is definitely reminiscent of Alfa Romeo’s. With that colossal rear fin stretching from the cabin to the rear end, the Aero 3 is around 7.9-inches longer than a standard F12.
As for the bodywork, Touring Superleggera used carbon in order to contain and even reduce the weight of the supercar by around 180 kg (total weight – 1,645 kg). The manufacturer says it is ready to meet customer expectations; everything is customizable.
Touring Superleggera has not yet disclosed the exact price of the model.
