If you watched the most current episode of Leading Gear, you will have seen Jeremy Clarkson driving a red model of Touring’;s Disco Volante around Italy, then showing off a silver-completed 1 in the studio back in the United kingdom. But when the doors open at the Palexo for the 2014 Geneva Motor Display this week, Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera will have an additional version to present off.
