I was just browsing around when I came across this. The Alfa Romeo Disco Volante (a homage to the 1950’s car).
A one of a kind 8C based Alfa that looks, well, utterly beautiful. Most Alfas are pretty, some are true beauties, there has been a few not so pretty ones, but this one is definitely the most beautiful of them all. I’m thinking of a word that describes beauty in a higher level, but I’m unsure. Gorgeous, stunning, striking, amazing, magnificent, overwhelming, etc. all of those words apply.
It is based on the 8C (an already beautiful Alfa) with its 4.7l V8 and 450hp customized by Italian design house Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. Handmade, designed in every detail and impressively finished, this car is what makes us car guys drool. This is the kind of stuff that puts the car in terms of art, it represents passion and craftsmanship, a true link between man and machine.
I hope to get to see this one live sometime, it could be the equivalent to that dreamed date with ones adolescence desired supermodel.
I’ve embedded a YouTube video of how it was made,… 3,205 man hours, handmade, with hammers! Not to mention the detail process, the gauges, everything on this car exclaims DESIGN! I love it!
