The Touring Superleggera design studio in Milan, Italy. Carrozzeria Touring became well known for both the beauty of its designs and patented superleggera construction methods.
Touring’s skills with light alloy and fabric-covered tubing forms brought commercial success in aircraft production in the 1930s, leading Bianchi Anderloni to develop the Superleggera construction system, patented in 1936.
This “super lightweight” system consists of a structure of small diameter tubes to form the body’s shape with thin alloy panels attached to cover and strengthen the framework. Aside from light weight, the Superleggera construction system gave great flexibility, allowing Touring to quickly construct innovative body shapes.
