#superleggera

Superleggera (super light) is an automobile coachwork construction technology developed by Felice Bianchi Anderloni of Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. Touring licensed Charles Weymann's system of fabric-covered lightweight frames, which led to Touring's own superleggera construction. Patented by Carrozzeria Touring in 1936, the Superleggera system consists of a structural framework of small-diameter steel tubes that conform to an automobile body's shape and are covered by thin alloy body panels that strengthen the framework. Aside from light weight, the superleggera construction system allows great design and manufacturing flexibility, enabling coachbuilders to quickly construct innovative body shapes.


We'll tell the story of the cars built with the Superleggera body on the occasion of its anniversary or when it will reach a sufficient number of cars.
