The Arese RH95 was born to share our passion for traditional custom coachbuilding; 18 units are expected, with deliveries beginning just one month after the official presentation.

The evolution of Touring’s “Streamline” styling philosophy, introduced with the Disco Volante Coupé and confidently reiterated in the AERO 3, Touring’s first venture into carbon fibre bodywork, is projected even more boldly into the future with the Arese RH95. It not only shares the AERO’s carbon structural methods, it is the first car in our long experience to utilize a centralized engine position, emphasizing yet further its inherent speed and performance bloodlines.

“This Arese RH95 is another milestone in the history of Touring, 95 years after its foundation” declares Salvatore Stranci, General Manager of Touring Superleggera. “Once again we demonstrate our ability to innovate, a practice renewed through the adoption of cutting-edge materials and construction techniques that are unusual for us.” Stéphane Sertang, CEO of Ginion Group, is delighted to be the official importer of Touring Superleggera for Belgium and Luxembourg: “At Ginion Group, we are passionate about state-of-the-art engineering and traditional craftsmanship embodying pieces of art on wheels. These aspects are not coincidentally found at the luxury and sports brands we are representing.

Therefore I am very delighted that we are the official importer for Touring Superleggera, an iconic Italian brand with a legendary history that we’ve always admired. We are also very pleased to have secured and configured with Louis de Fabribeckers, designer of the Touring Aero3, the second chassis of this new model car for one of our customers that will arrive in the coming weeks.”

Touring’s new Arese RH95 represents the next generation of the firm’s AERO range, established with our acclaimed Disco Volante Coupé of 2012. It’s a perfect synthesis between the sinuous volumes and ideal proportions of the Disco Coupé, and the aggressive and powerful form of the AERO 3, introduced in autumn 2020. “In fact,” explains Louis de Fabribeckers, Director of the Touring Style Centre, “Arese RH95 reflects the stylistic features of the entire AERO line in its many distinctive elements, and the cinematic openings of the exterior panels adds theatricality to a car that is art and design in motion.”

Arese RH95 expresses a touch of drama in all its features, and if the novel scissor doors are its most striking expression, every detail is fascinating but subtle. From the bright aluminium side-slash briskly interrupted by the front wheel arch, then continued elegantly along the waistline, inspired by the Disco, to the grille and front air nostril treatment derived from AERO 3, every flank and panel offers a visual delicacy.

The Arese’s stage presence reaches its zenith, however, with the rear clamshell, where the dorsal scoop is the car’s emblematic feature, simultaneously bold and functional, optimizing forced air circulation in the engine compartment. Aside from this dorsal, the shoulder air inlets and a corresponding rear outlet, the sleek rear body contours are otherwise simple and quite voluptuous, with not even a trunk opening to mar the fluid shape of the rear aspect and not a hint of the brutal faux-Le Mans-winner “styling” so typical in much of the current supercar genre—although a brief, enchanting memory tickle of Alfa 33 Stradale might occur to the connoisseur.

Meanwhile, thanks to the scissor-hinged doors and their generous roof cut-outs, ease of passenger compartment ingress/egress is exceptional. Interior ergonomics, overall visibility, and the AERO series “cocoon” concept of individual cockpits for driver and passenger give the former a highly usable and comfortable workspace, and the latter a viewing and sensory experience of a lifetime.

Touring’s ample choice of interior colours and materials greatly expand the client’s personalization opportunities, and exterior paint and trim choices are also liberal. Car Number One is finished in Verde Pino, with silver accent bands at nose and tail to accentuate its sporty character, and a cockpit blend of caramel and cocoa, with seat facings accented in shades of saffron. The brilliant red of Alfa’s 8C Competizione will grace Car Two, with white nose panels in the fashion of Alfa’s GTA racers from the 1960s. Likewise, Car Three takes livery from the motorsport world, wearing the famous Gulf Orange and Blue.

All examples of the Touring Arese RH95 will be built around the chassis and drivetrain of a well-known exotic, mid-engine donor car, whose active dynamics have been engineered to handle the new body loadings and specifics, and ensure performance and efficiency. Each will be thoroughly tested and quality assured before delivery to the client. Donor specimens may be provided by the client, or if desired, sourced through Touring Superleggera.

Cognisant from the earliest days of the industry that weight is the enemy, Touring Superleggera has returned once again to carbon fibre for the Arese coachwork. The thicknesses and orientation of the strands are selected for the best weight/stiffness ratio, and in the preparatory phase, the optimal use of materials was analyzed in terms of overall weight, strength, surface appearance and durability. For maximum precision and quality, each CFRP element is produced by vacuum infusion at 120 degrees Celsius.

Touring’s Arese RH95 price is on request. Touring Superleggera is able to deliver the completed car six months after receipt of the basic (donor) car. Every part manufactured or modified by Touring Superleggera is covered by an unlimited mileage two-year warranty, subject to the usual terms of industrial production. The availability of parts produced or modified by Touring is guaranteed for life.
