Meet the Touring Arese RH95
Ferrari-based supercar celebrates Touring Superleggera's 95th birthday
You don’t hear a lot about Touring Superleggera, but that’s probably the only real downside to being an Italian coachbuilder. The company got started back in 1928 building custom bodies on Alfa Romeos, and over the years it’s given the world some pretty cool custom cars, the latest of which is this very limited Arese RH95 – named for the location of Touring Superleggera’s HQ in Milan and the initials of the project’s ‘founding patron’ – is the company’s first mid-engined car.
Touring Superleggera Arese RH95 is a custom coach-built Ferrari celebrating 95 years of coachbuilding from Touring. Underneath the skin is most probably a Ferrari F8 Tributo (or a 488, not sure), cars that proved themselves to be very fast and capable on the road and track. Now Touring Superleggera has given it a completely new look, and it's completely bespoke.
The RH95 is the first mid-engined car Touring has made, and the styling certainly gives plenty of clues as to the engine placement. Its body is mostly carbon-fiber, the front-end styling is reminiscent of the Aero 3, while the rear clamshell (with integrated, and fully functional, dorsal scoop) is described as “sleek and quite voluptuous” by the coachbuilder. The rear haunches feature large air intakes covered with a mesh grille for cooling, and the rear window assembly is mostly replaced with an induction scoop for feeding airflow directly to the engine.
Performance is broadly on par with the Ferrari F8. Touring Superleggera says the RH95 makes 710hp (719PS) and 760Nm (560lb-ft) from the twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission driving the rear wheels. 0-62mph (0-100kph) takes around 3.0 seconds and the estimated top speed is 205mph (330kph).
And yes! Only 18 units will be available worldwide, making it one of the rarest cars too!
