Touring Aero3 VS Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B

The Touring AERO 3 represents the most up-to-date interpretation of Touring’s streamlined style originating in the 1930s. The most prominent design element is the teardrop shape, which defines the purity of the body as a whole.

The design of the AERO 3 was inspired by the Alfa Romeo 2900B Le Mans Touring. This unique machine dominated the 1938 Le Mans 24 Hours race, its aerodynamic coachwork endowing it with a monstrous top speed. Let’s analyze together the design of both Touring Superleggera master pieces.

In accordance with time-honoured Touring practice, the AERO 3 avoids jarring, heavily angular architecture in favour of more sweeping, harmonious, but well-defined curves.

The dorsal fin, today commonly seen on pure racing cars, reflects pioneering “wind profile” studies into aerodynamic theories by Touring in the industry’s first wind tunnel, during The Golden Age.

This detail, while evoking design traits from Touring’s heritage, is artfully blended into the overall visual harmony of the machine.

While the sculpted flanks give the shape dynamism and suggest power, and the large, muscular bonnet fires the imagination with promises of invigorating performance, the emphasis is on Touring’s signature balance of proportions and lightness of touch.
