Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera
By Giovanni Bianchi Anderloni
Published by Fucina S.r.l.

The history of Touring is described in this new book by Giovanni Bianchi Anderloni, grandson of the founder using the Bianchi Anderloni family archives and with the support of the national archives, as well as vintage magazines.

For all lovers of vintage cars, Carrozzeria Touring is synonymous with elegance, sophistication and aerodynamic efficiency. The Superleggera Berlinetta, the Barchetta Ferrari, and the Disco Volante are just three examples that represent the achievements of the famous Milanese designer who was born in 1926. Other cars featured in the book are the Alfa Romeos - the 6C 1750 Flying Star, the 6C 2300 Mille Miglia, the 8C 2300 and 2900, the Sprint 1900 and 2000, and the 2600 Spider, the 3500 GT Maserati, the first Lamborghinis (350 GT and 400 GT), the Lancias, including the Lambda Flaminia, and many other major brands (Isotta Fraschini, Fiat, Bianchi, Ansaldo, OM, Mercedes). These are cars that have all won both in concours d'élégance and on the track. Also covered is the period of Carlo Felice Anderloni who led the Alfa Romeo Centro Stile.

5 of 5 Carrozzeria Touring September 14, 2020
Reviewer: Timothy Heggland from Mazomanie, WI United States  
As always with Dalton Watson books, this title is superb in every way and is a wonderful addition to any serious automotive library, especially one devoted to automotive design.   These two volumes are superbly printed, the authors are ideal, and the hundreds of photos are a feast for the mind and the eyes.

5 of 5 Excellent pictures June 10, 2019
Reviewer: Jacques Helot from Ingolstadt, Bavaria Germany  
The story is told in a captivating way through many beautiful period black and white pictures. They are not only of the finished cars but also of the models, the drawings and of the cars being assembled. This gives a feel of how the cars came to be. Touring made the most beautiful cars for a few decades. It is also interesting to see that the Touring proposal for what became the Miura was not that far off the final end result...
