Carrozzeria Touring returning with new SuperleggeraEnlarge Photo
Carrozzeria Touring built many of its cars using fabric-covered lightweight frames, a construction method it dubbed ‘Superleggera’ (Italian for super light), and even patented the concept at one point. Aside from light weight, the Superleggera technique gave great flexibility, allowing Touring to quickly construct innovative body shapes.
In 2006, international automotive group Zeta Europe BV bought the rights to the company and has set about reestablishing the coachbuilder at its original location in Milan. The company now plans to reveal a modern day Superleggera (pictured) at the upcoming Concours d'Elegance Villa d'Este and there are plans to reignite old ties with a number of international carmakers.
