CENTRAL ENGINE AND DESIGN
The Touring Arese RH95 marks an epochal turning point in the history of the Touring Superleggera bodywork: it is the first car, in fact, for which a mid-engine configuration was chosen, built on the basis of a mid-engine donor car, precisely: to push it a 720 horsepower V8, paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission. Performance is supercar: from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in less than 3 seconds and 340 km / h top speed. The two-seater’s carbon fiber bodywork enhances aerodynamics and performance: in design, the front grille is reminiscent of the Aero 3, and the one-piece rear hood opens into the wind integrating the air intake. The soft and sinuous volumes are reminiscent of the Disco Volante, with a thin aluminum line that runs along the side, and original solutions such as the vertical exhausts, the diffuser, the LEDs of the headlights inserted in the air vents. To add a certain theatricality to the car, the upward opening of the doors.
INTERIORS AND LIVERY

The different liveries will be inspired by the history of racing: for one there is the bright red of the Alfa 8C Competizione, with a white front to recall the GTAs of the fifties and sixties, while for another the inspiration comes from the American tracks. , with the orange and blue Gulf Oil.
