Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera was an automobile coachbuilder established in 1926. It was founded by Felice Bianchi Anderloni, who had previously worked for Isotta-Fraschini as a test driver, as well as the Italian operations of Peugeot. The company was built as off of what was once Carrozzeria Falco by Anderloni and Gaetano Ponzoni. They adopted the name Touring shortly after.
The company started to produce custom built automotive bodywork with two core mantras form the very beginning: sporting elegance and lightness. Early customers were car makers Isotta Fraschini and Alfa Romeo. The ‘Superleggera’ (Super lightweight) construction system - patented in 1936 - consists of a structure made up of thin steel tubes that forms the body’s shape, then hand-hammered alloy panels are attached to cover the framework, adding extra strength
