But what kind of vehicle is the 4,6 meter long and only 1,3 meter high Alfa Romeo Disco Volante with space frame architecture?

The car is the street version of the show car that was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012.
Alfa Romeo Disco Volante!
A crisp coupé with the spirit of yesteryear and the attractiveness of today. He is smartly dressed in aluminum and has plenty from 450 HP under the hood. And it exudes the spirit of a famous role model. Namely from the Alfa Romeo C1952 racing car built in 52 "Disco Volante" with Alfa 1900 Sprint engine, which because of the streamlined shape "flying saucer" was called. In Italian: Flying saucer. But he is not a nostalgic copy, but according to his own statement a "Saucer in neo-retro". The highlights of the body are a circumferential Aluminum profile front, fat Fenders all around and the art that has come true of mixing smooth, calm surfaces with striking sheet metal cuts. At the back there is a dramatically rising end and a paint job in "Flame Red". The one mentioned 4,7 liter V8 is a Ferrari engine and hangs on one sequential six-speed gearbox (Transaxle gear).
Exchanged: carbon cover for aluminum skin!
And under the aluminum skin is the complete technology of the Alfa 8C installed. Thereon based the Carrozzeria Touring Alfa Romeo Disco Volante namely. That means you had to open one back then 500 limited 8C for at least 160.000 Euros deliver in order to be able to realize the conversion. In the workshops at Terrazzano, the expensive carbon fiber shell of the 8C was then removed and the Touring aluminum skin set over the steel frame. Until an Alfa Romeo Disco Volante was completed, according to their own statement, went well 4.000 working hours. The mentioned 450 PS and 470 Nm torque catapult the Disco Volante in just one 4,2 seconds at country road speed and easily up to 292 km / h top. At the end... Alien!
