Touring Disco VolanteThe string of early reveals in front of the Geneva Motor Show continues with bonafide auto-porn shots of the Carrozzeria Touring Disco Volante concept. And if it's true that sex sells, Alfa Romeo could seriously clean up if it put this hot hatch into production.

Coachbuilder Carrozzeria drew heavily from the Touring Disco concept it created for Alfa in 1952. The boattail-like rear window and tiny twin taillights are direct descendants of the 60-year-old muse. Same goes for the long hood, short rear deck proportions that just scream speed.

Beneath the sexy skin is an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, including its 443-horsepower, 4.7-liter V8 and six-speed tranny.

Looking to add a Disco Volante to your harem of supercars? Get in line. Quickly. Carrozzeria says it will build only a few for the very wealthy who probably aren't you.

      I'm not saying I hate it, but it definitely didn't worth destroying an 8C for this.

      Build it, because once it becomes a drop top it will look like a Spider.

      Don't find this sexy at all--I find it outdated, and the builder needs to move on from their last, ancient successful design.

        While it doesn't have the cachet of one of more legendary (already mentioned) coach builders, Touring likely will land in the top five if you were to commission a survey with automotive design historians. In a world of corporate, cookie-cutter designs, it's a relief to see this old world artistic design amongst a sea of Orwellian conformist drudgery.

        Ahem, amateur reviews aside, if anyone is lucky enough to be in the Los Angeles area in the next few months, the Peterson Automotive Museum is showcasing classic Italian design from the likes of Pininfarina, Bertone, Ghia and others. You'll never see a collection like this, all in one place, short of the Concorso Italiano up in Monterey, CA.

          Ahem, you just confirmed what I argued--this design is one for a museum, not a modern car show. Sorry I didn't meet you elitist review expectations, but I am not impressed with the design at all; the previous one was better because it was created so long ago. This one is just a simple re-hash. No thanks...

        Yep, Disco is dead and so should this car.

      This has to be one of the most beautiful cars I've ever seen. The original is wonderful, as well. But this corrects some of the original's issues - chief among which is a comically narrow front track - while still retaining the original's strange shapeliness. I adore it.
