The Alfa Romeo Disco Volante (Flying Saucer) known also as 1900 C52, is a concept car series with production starting from 1952. The cars were racing car concepts with mechanics from the Alfa Romeo 1900 and made in collaboration with Milan based coachbuilder Touring. The engine was a slightly tuned 1900 engine (1997 cc) now producing 158 bhp (118 kW). The car was very streamlined, windtunnel tested, and the body was built on a tubular space frame. This aerodynamic shape made a top speed of 220 kilometres per hour (140 mph) possible.

Three different body styles were made: one open seater and two different coupé styles. There was even a 3.5 L version made for Juan Manuel Fangio. None of these automobiles ever attained to the status of truly successful racing cars although they were tried a few times, with one victory having been taken at the Gran Premio Supercortemaggiore. According to some the design of the Jaguar E-type has some design cues similar to the Disco Volante

Evolution. The new Mini looks small compared to most cars in America, but HUGE when compared to the old Mini.

Depth of Speed: Poetry in Motion.

This 300SL Gullwing is the culmination of a thirty year dream. This car doesn't represent one piece in a collection, it is the entire collection. This is a dream that has come to fruition after 30 years of hard work and getting oneself into a position to own the car that has been yearned for for thirty years. For myself, the idea of dreaming for one car and working hard for years and years is truly inspirational. It helps me keep the dream alive for the cars that I desire to own in the years to come.
When I first came across this story I was in disbelief that there was someone who drives a car of this magnitude often and all across the country in various states of weather. Knowing there was someone who was doing so brought a smile to my face and made me happy that this car was being enjoyed in a way it was meant to be. Other Gullwings in museums and private collections have their place in preserving their place in history but there is just something about knowing that you can come across one of these on the open road or on your favorite drive is mind blowing.
