A car with such an amazing name is bound to astounding. Touring Superleggera Berlinetta Lusso is the name of the latest masterpiece by the Italian coachbuilder whose Disco Volante made Jeremy Clarkson clutch at his tinkle and run around in circles. The Lusso is set for debut the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

The mere mention of Touring Superleggera’s name is enough to grab our attention, but they have released an intriguing teaser video to give us a taste of what they are cooking:

As you can see in the video, Touring Superleggera Berlinetta Lusso is a bespoke, hand-built reinterpretation of a car that in Touring’s words is “a well-done thing” which they are attempting to make better. As per Superleggera tradition, there is no carbon fiber in the body of the car. It is made using hand beaten aluminum, hammered into shape by master craftsmen.

That is part of the reason why TS cars are so expensive. They are literally like a piece of jewelry created over a long period of time using old methods by someone in possession of an artist’s eye and a sculptor’s hand. The teaser also shows a Ferrari 166 MM Touring which means the Lusso is most likely Ferrari-based, and that it draws inspiration from this particular classic.
