Alfa Romeo – C52 Disco Volante Spider

Produced between 1952 and 1953 by Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo in collaboration with Milanese coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring, the Alfa Romeo 1900 C52 “Disco Volante” is commonly known simply as Alfa Romeo Disco Volante (Italian for “Flying Saucer”).


Vehicle Overview

The car was distinguished by streamlined, wind tunnel tested bodywork. Three spiders were made in 1952, with a 2-litre all-alloy four-cylinder engine; a year later one was modified into a coup, and another one into a more conventional-looking spider. Two more examples were built fitted with a six-cylinder 3.5-litre engine from the Alfa Romeo 6C 3000 CM racing car. Four of the five cars built in total survive today.
