1983 Alfa Romeo Disco Volante 2000
Tribute by Ferrero

  • The only one example buildt in this configuration
  • Alluminium body
  • Based on a 1983 Alfa Romeo Spider
  • 4 cyclinders, 2L engine
  • A dream which comes true

The Alfa Romeo 1900 C52 “Disco Volante”, commonly known simply as Alfa Romeo Disco Volante (Italian for «Flying Saucer»), is a series of experimental sports racing cars produced between 1952 and 1953 by Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo in collaboration with Milanese coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring. The car was distinguished by streamlined, wind tunnel tested bodywork.

Three spiders were made in 1952, with a 2-litre all-alloy four-cylinder engine; a year later one was modified into a coupé, and another one into a more conventional-looking spider. Two more examples were built fitted with a six-cylinder 3.5-litre engine from the Alfa Romeo 6C 3000 CM racing car. Four of the five cars built in total survive today.

The 1900 C52 was originally developed in 1952 to take part to Sport category races. Its fully enveloping aerodynamic bodywork was developed and built together with Carrozzeria Touring, and wind tunnel tested. Studied to achieve a low drag coefficient even in crosswinds, the body featured a lenticular cross-section both viewed from the front and from the side; the underbody was faired-in. According to some the design of the Jaguar E-type has some design cues similar to the Disco Volante.

This tribute to the Disco Volante was built by Carrozzeria Ferrero of Milan during the 1990s and it was completly restored 6 years ago.
This car was built on the base of an Alfa Romeo Spider “Duetto” 3rd series 2000cc. The body is in aluminium and the 4c Alfa Romeo engine sounds fantastic.
It’s known that Carrozzeria Ferrero made only 2 tribute of the Disco Volante, one with the 1900cc Alfa engine and the other one based on a 1983 Alfa “Duetto” 2L, this one. So this is the only one exmplar ever made in this configuration.
It comes with the Italian Libretto of the Alfa Romeo Spider which is based.
This is one of rare opportunity to buy something unique and legendary.
We accept also part exchange.
