Touring Superleggera Aero 3 is Ferrari F12 with retro sauce

You can entrust the gentlemen and ladies of Touring Superleggera with an exotic to make something special out of it. This is proven with its latest creation: the Aero 3. A tribute to racing cars from the 1930s based on the Ferrari F12Berlinetta.

Over the years, Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera has treated us to various high-profile creations. It transformed a Bentley Continental GT into a shooting brake , the Alfa Romeo 8C was transformed into the Disco Volante and it was based on a Maserati GranTurismo with the Sciadipersia . The Ferrari F12 has also been taken care of by the Italian company. It is now again the F12 (Berlinetta) that has been tackled by the rough. See here: the Touring Superleggera Aero 3.

Unlike the last time they put the saw in a Ferrari, Touring Superleggera is now fully on the retro tour. According to its creators, the car should be a contemporary tribute to the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 B Le Mans from the 1930s. That car, which, as the name suggests, was intended for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, already received its bodywork from Carrozzeria Touring. Now, 82 years later, the Aero 3 has to recall memories of that car despite its base from another manufacturer.

Although it takes a second look to recognize the F12 in it, the majority of the Ferrari has been left untouched, according to the body builder. That is to say, they have not been concerned with the technology. The bodywork has of course been taken care of from head to toe. The car has become almost 2 centimeters longer, but due to the use of carbon fiber it has become lighter. 180 kilos even. The split grille with next to the two air intakes placed loosely in the bumper are clear references to the Alfa Romeo from 1938. Just like the very special pointed rear, although the Alfa did not have such a wing in the center of the rear of the car.

As said, it is a lot more famous under the special coach and that means that the 6.3-liter V12 in the nose still squeezes 740 hp. In 3.1 seconds, the Aero 3 shoots to 100 km / h and spears to 340 km / h. A lot of people will not be able to enjoy it alone: ​​Touring Superleggera is only going to transform 15 F12s into an Aero 3. They will leave out what the whole party should cost, but you will probably buy a detached house in the middle of the country for the same money.
