Milan-based coachbuilder to build five of its Ferrari F12-based Berlinetta Lusso coupés
3 March 2015

Italian coachbuilder Touring Superleggera's Berlinetta Lusso has been revealed at the Geneva motor show.

The car is based on the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, though adopts minor styling changes to give the car a more retro appearance.

Most noticeable is the large grille which dominates the front end of the concept. The interior of the F12 also appears mostly unchanged, and keeps its digital dashboard.

Previously, an official video released by Touring Superleggera hinted at a deep Ferrari connection, with the Carlo Anderloni-penned Ferrari 166 MM Touring starring alongside snippets of the firm's concept. Included in the video was a quote by late Fiat owner Gianni Agnelli: "A well-done thing can be made better."

The Berlinetta Lusso retains the F12's naturally aspirated 6.3-litre V12, which produces 731bhp and 509lb ft. Performance is claimed to be the same as the Ferrari F12, meaning the Berlinetta Lusso should be capable of sprinting from 0-60mph in just 3.0sec.

Touring Superleggera has revealed low-volume production cars in the past at Geneva. Two years ago, the firm pulled the wraps off its Alfa Romeo 8C-based Disco Volante, and three years prior to that it revealed its Bentley Flying Star shooting brake.

If only, The 612 was my favourite modern Ferrari, particularly in blue.
The Disco Volante was revolting, but the Bentley Shooting Brake was superb, much better looking than the GT on which it is based.

Please, Please with a cherry on top do something like this on an MX5 platform. Keep it narrow so it fits on tight UK roads but keep the perfect proportions. This way it would be affordable and offer a level of performance that is fully usable on real roads. The world would be a pretty place with stuff like this on the roads, instead of a rich guys private collection.

If you were buying this you'd want to do a lot of driving Holidays round Europe,down to the South of France,Monaco,not just going to do the Weekly shop,British Roads are in a terrible state just now you'd get your fillings rattled out of your Teeth.

Those of us that cannot afford one would like to do that but, most buyers will put it in the garage, along with all the other cars they have collected, to show-off to their rich friends.

 

I'm a disillusioned former Citroëniste.
