Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera has revealed a stunning new sports car known as the Touring Aero 3. The car started life as a Ferrari F12, but has been completely reskinned in a manner reminiscent of a classic sports car from decades gone by. The vehicle combines an Italian V12 supercar’s performance with retro styling.

The Aero 3 is a refinement of the company’s past designs and carries on a tradition of design inspired by the mid-20th Century “golden age” of Italian coachbuilding. It certainly looks like a race car from the earlier days of motorsports. It has an aerodynamic shark fin on the top reminiscent of those old cars, which can still be found on some modern racing cars. The chassis and mechanicals come directly from the Ferrari F12, including the 6.2-liter 65ยบ V12 that makes 630 horsepower and 509 lb-ft. of torque. That power goes to the rear wheels exclusively via a 7-speed electro-actuated sequential gearbox. The estimated top speed for the Aero 3 is 211 mph, with a 0-to-62 mph time of just 3.1 seconds.

Superleggera says that its craftsmen and engineers spent over 5000 hours to produce the car.
