In its entire production run, Alfa Romeo only ever built 500 examples of the 8C Competizione – just 90 of which ended up in the United States – and another 500 Spiders. That makes it a pretty rare car indeed, but it's positively commonplace compared to the Disco Volante, the version reborn by the talented and steady hands at Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera.

In correspondece with Autoblog, Touring's CEO Piero Mancardi confirmed that the coachbuilder will only build eight examples of the Disco Volante, in colors chosen by their individual customers: one in black, one in blue, one in silver, the one in green you see here and the rest in different shades of red.

That makes this particular example a one-of-a-kind work of art that we were privileged to behold here at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, and you can see what we saw through the camera lens in the high-resolution image gallery above, or by checking out the video below.

      I think it is gorgeous, in a challenging way. Kinda like Uma Thurman. Classic Alfa Romeo

      This car is a re edition of the 1952 Disco Volante. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfa_Romeo_Disco_Volante So, the strange shape of this car is perfectly fitted on its history. And. No.. doesn't looks like the old Lexus SC300, maybe the opposite

      I'm completely okay with this not coming to the US. In my humble opinion, this is ugly.

      I think that is just an awful looking design, the 4C it is based on is much better looking!

      Not my cup of tea. Not sure what it will sell for, but if you put that amount of money in my hand, I wouldn't be coming home with this.

      Jeremy Clarkson tested one on top gear and loved it. I think it's ugly. Won't be sold here in the US anyways.
