PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Touring Superleggera Sciadipersia Cabriolet Just Might Be The Secret Star of the Geneva Motor Show

The 2019 Geneva Motor Show brought out a vociferous diet of coachbuilt cars, including the Touring Superleggera Sciadipersia Cabriolet. Developed and built by famous Italian coachbuilder Touring Superleggera, the Sciadipersia Cabriolet is the open-top version of the 2018 Sciadipersia that the company brought to Geneva last year. The design of the Sciadipersia Cabriolet remains true to the look of its coupe sibling, minus, of course, the hard top. Power is provided by a naturally aspirated V-8 engine that produces a tidy 468 horsepower. Touring Superleggera only plans to build 15 units of the Sciadipersia Cabriolet, the price of which has yet to be announced.

The Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera name traces its roots back to 1925 when the coachbuilding company was founded. Over the years it’s been instrumental in designing many vehicles that we now consider timeless classics (the Lamborghini 350 and 400 GT, Aston Martin DB5, and Maserati 3500 GT, among others). The company closed its doors in 1966, but the trademark was acquired in 2006 by new owners that, ultimately, tried to pick up where the brand left off all those decades ago.

PostHeaderIcon Touring Sciàdipersia Pays Tribute To Luxury Travel Of The Past

In case you were unaware, Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera is a legendary Italian design house and bespoke coachbuilder, best known for products like the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante, Bentley Continental Flying Star, and Touring Berlinetta Lusso, among others. Now, Touring is offering a new limited edition custom two-door dubbed the Sciadipersia, bringing superlative European grand touring style as a celebration of the 60th anniversary of the bespoke Maserati 5000 GTs that Touring created for the Shah of Iran back in the ‘50s. The
Sciadipersia was “designed to cover long distance with complete ease and in total comfort,” much like the travelers that booked passage on the Orient Express so long ago.

The Full Story

“The Sciadipersia features an utterly unique exterior, with a plethora of horizontal details that enhance the car’s natural low and wide stance.”

First up, the name. Sciadipersia is Italian for “Shah of Iran,” which frames this custom two-door as a nod to the three Maserati 5000 GTs that Touring customized for the last Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, back in 1958.

The new Sciadipersia features an utterly unique exterior, with a long hood line, a rear-biased greenhouse, and a plethora of horizontal details that enhance the car’s natural low and wide stance. Aluminum trim with a polished finish is found just about everywhere, as is hand-brushed satin. The exterior also features Orient Night Blue paint, as well as select carbon fiber elements.

“The surface treatments portray an arrow about to be loosed from a bow,” Touring gushes, “with a sharp front and a suggestion of the fletches at the rear.”

“The upholstery consists of leather from Foglizzo, and comes with a “special aroma” specially developed for Touring applications.”

The interior is equally customized, with a four-seat layout employing a quartet of individual captain’s chairs. The large windows provide a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape, a feature that’s meant to mimic the “luxury travel in the days of the Orient Express and the great ocean liners.”

The upholstery consists of leather from Foglizzo, and comes with a “special aroma” specially developed for Touring applications. The blue hue found outside is matched in the cabin, and comes complemented by contrast stitching and piping detailing. The seat backs come with an embroidered Sciadipersia logo. Naturally, the vehicle also includes a customized Foglizzo luggage set that fits into the trunk.

Under the skin, you’ll find the Sciadipersia is based on a modern Maserati GranTurismo rolling chassis, with the naturally aspirated V-8 powerplant and corresponding mechanical features going unchanged from the stock vehicle.

Providing motivation is a 4.7-liter V-8 making 460 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, all of which is sent rearwards through a six-speed automatic transmission. Performance specs match the standard Maserati, with a claimed 0-to-62 mph time of 4.6 seconds and an estimated top speed of 301 km/h (187 mph). Curb weight is rated at 1,700 kg (3,748 pounds).

“Pricing is available upon request, but rest assured, this is one very expensive automobile.”

Pricing is available upon request, but rest assured, this is one very expensive automobile. Like “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” expensive. Each example is hand-built in Milan, with Touring limiting production at 10 units total.

Furthermore, the hand-formed panels will offer a high-degree of precision fitment to make sure the Sciadipersia meets the standards expected of such a vehicle. Even though it’s a custom automobile, Touring says it will conduct rigorous NVH (noise/vibration/harshness), ride quality, weather-proofing, and finish tests.The whole build takes six months to complete.

PostHeaderIcon Touring Superleggera Berlinetta Lusso

Touring Superleggera, a custom coachbuilder based out of Italy, got its start installing custom bodies on Alfa Romeos back in 1928. Now with over 80 years under its belt, the Italian coachbuilder is one of the best-known in the industry, and it builds some of the most amazing rigs. Its latest creation, the Berlinetta Lusso, made its debut at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show.

As soon as I laid eyes on its name, I knew the Italians came to Geneva to pay homage to one of the most exquisite grand tourers ever built. To achieve that, Touring Superlegerra brought together the styling and technology of a modern-day Ferrari with the elegant and sexy lines of the classic 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso. The end result is a stunning automobile crafted in the same vein as the Alfa Romeo 8C-based Disco Volante and a limited-edition supercar that’s likely to become tomorrow’s most sought-after collectible.

Updated 03/04/2915: Touring Superleggera unveiled its Ferrari F12 Berlinetta-based Berlinetta Lusso at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The model will be built in limited edition and will be put on sale later this year.
