Touring Superleggera Reappears with a Luxury F12

Posted by on Mar 9, 2015

Touring Superleggera is back in the spotlight at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show with a world premiere: the Berlinetta Lusso. The main character on stage is a street-legal 2-seater coupe, the first of a series of five units. Behind its birth is the desire of a passionate Ferrari collector to have his own F12 dressed up. The tailor-made lavish coupe in the purest spirit of Italian Carrozzeria features a three-box architecture, itself a statement of luxury. It makes the hailed F12 rolling chassis with its overpowering naturally aspirated V-12 even more special. The Touring Berlinetta Lusso celebrates the legacy born with the feature line introduced by Touring on the iconic Ferrari 166 MM, the first series-produced Ferrari. It is the ultimate expression of the creative inspiration of the Italian coachbuilder, recently appointed with numerous awards at the major contests. Design: The Touring Berlinetta Lusso takes inspiration from the golden era...
