Description

The fascinating history of Touring, a name of absolute excellence among the creators of Italian car bodies, told through a wealth of illustrations and brief texts.

From the early 1930s until the mid-60s, Touring created true works of art. In that period, Touring brought to life its unforgettable Superleggera, cars of extraordinary fascination and elegance that were always the descendants of in-depth aerodynamic studies.

Their client list became longer from 1947, with other customers, including Ferrari and the iconic 166 barchetta, Maserati with the extraordinary 3500 GT, Aston Martin, Lancia and Lamborghini.

That brilliant trend came to a close in 1966, when Touring was forced to close, only to return 40 years later when the Touring Superleggera returned to spawn a new generation of one-offs.
