Italian coachbuilders are probably the inventors of words like 'car porn'. They usually give us machines that go straight to our bedroom wall. Case in point, the Touring Superleggera Aero 3.

What you see above is a 730 horsepower masterpiece that comes from the house of an Italian coachbuilder called Touring Superleggera.

Underneath the car you shall find a 6.3 litre V12 that can produce 730 horsepower and 690 Nm of torque. As a result, this beauty can reach 60mph in 3.1 seconds and reach 211 mph (340 km/h).

The numbers though aren't the main highlight of the car. Something that has stolen the should of many is the lovely angular exterior design of the Aero 3. Touring claim that they have given the car a "harmonious, but well-defined curves" and we like them. A lot.

Also, you might have noticed the shark fin by now. That, my friend, is there to show that the car is truly "designed by the wind". What's more intruguing is that, like many coachbuilt cars, it takes Touring 5,000 hours to build one of these. WOW

Step inside and you will find a very modern looking steering wheel, racing seatbelts, the Touring logo alongwith polished aluminium, black matte aluminium and matte carbon fiber detailing.

Touring claim that the car on which the Aero 3 is based is a “premier Italian supercar". Want to know the name of the Italian supercar? Well, the Aero 3's donor car is the Ferrari F12.

The Aero 3 shares its frame chassis, running gear and other electronical bits with the F12. If you want one of these, then you need to approach Touring with your cheque book and also a Ferrari F12.

Only 15 F12s will be converted into the Aero 3. To sum it all up, Touring say that this car shows "weight is the enemy, air resistance the obstacle".

  • Looks like a tribute to the Alfa 8C 2900 Aerodynamica Coupé. Unconventional for it to be based on an F12, but I'm not complaining. Just wow!

    Then I'm gonna get it out on the road and drive it.

    And then I'll give it a DogScore.

  • So they took a beautifully designed car the F12 Berlinetta and then,

    took the design reference from Maserati books like lights looks like Ghibli and then came to the rear and took the inspiration from,

    disco volante like shape from Alfa Romeo or the older Stirling Moss era LE Mans enduro racer design and added the old school sharkfin design and took the rear design from the front of Renault Megane and then the overall exhaust and diffuser design taken from Centodieci {Shotgun Exhaust} and called it a day,

    what happened to coachbuilders nowadays they tend to make the already beautiful cars even more beautiful but looks like they've lost something in which they're resorting to some lifting off some design bits and make them look like even more uninspiring in their designs,
