Touring – Aero3
A two-seater high performance machine, shaped by the wind and readily identifiable as a rare fuoriserie.
Based on the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, the new Touring supercar will be built in 15 units and has a alluminium “superleggera” body. The first speciment is inspired by the 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B that raced in Le Mans. According to Touring’s chef designer Louis de Fabribeckers, the goal of this model is not to make the most efficient car, but rather the most beautiful.
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. AERO 3 is the third streamliner model in Touring’s recent lineup, after the highly successful Disco Volante and Disco Volante Spyder.
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. 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.
On road or track, electrifying performance is assured. Massive reserves of power from the large V12 motor see to that, but for customers wanting a little bit of extra spice for track use we can discuss bespoke options with you.
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.
Specially constructed according to the customer’s instructions, so ensuring a high degree of personalisation, each Touring AERO 3 will be a unique example of the fuoriserie art.
This is a car with a strong character, with highly distinctive features, so it is entirely appropriate that the owner’s own personality is stamped on it from the beginning. Exotic materials and unusual colours produce a finished product with its own distinct style.
