Almost live from Geneva 2016: More Superleggera Touring

Our roving reporter, Robertas Parazitas, has been out with his Hasselblad to capture some of the vehicles at the Geneva Motor Show.

Thus we have these exclusive images of the Superleggera Touring Alfa Romeo. Yes, it’s still very fine looking. Alfa Romeo’s own designers are having a very hard time expressing how a modern Alfa Romeo should look. To judge by this, Superleggera Touring have their finger on it. The car is actually deeply retro and yet isn’t at all. This is a first rate synthesis of old and new.

  1. Bizarrely, another convertible that visually betters its coupe sibling. To me, this car exudes joy.

    Richard has a point. A lot of manufacturers – not just Italian ones, although that would be a good start – could do with a little carrozzeria magic back in their lives.

  2. In fact, Touring Superleggera isn’t really still in business after all these years. It’s a new company who purchased the name in 2006, after it had been dormant for 40 years. Not that I’m knocking them for that. Possibly a more business-oriented model could make an independent design house more relevant to the 21st Century.
