1 narrow side , fianchi stretti Touring or Colli
1 coupe Touring
both the 4cyl and the 6cyl was tested
I don't have the book about Disco Volant and have not read it. But in the book, Touring Superleggera, Anderloni writs Quote.
In 1953 this led to a redesign of the vehicle and the so called "Disco Volante fianshi stretti",
a version the lenticular section was only a faint memory, while the wheels remained uncovered like those of a normal sports "barschetta" of the Italian sporting tradition.
Unfortunately we don't have photograph of this version which was also built by Touring within the framework of its normal cooperation with Alfa Romeo. end Quote
We know that there was a lot of sups playing from the smaller carrozzeria to the large, and the cooperation between Colli and Touring was close. The Colli Brothers had got there craftsman education in the Touring workshop , an thy placed the workshop opposite to Touring in the same street, and maybe Bianchi Anderloni has edged the brothers to open there own carrozzeria.
If the assumption is correct, then can the sentence "within the framework of its normal cooperation" mean that Touring had got the order for a alternative design and passed the order to
Tourings subs player Colli, as it was supposed to be a one off order. The history has brought knowledge, that the narrow side was build by Colli and everybody has forgot that it was Touring that originally got the order to build an alternative version. Rudolf Hruska played a part in this
I suppose as a consultancy, as he was at this time, and maybe he was under pressure from the management by Alfa Romeo. The management was under pressure from the general board because they had approved a very high sum in connection with the Grand Prix/formula 1 , so spending in connection with racing activities was not popular. So Hruska had to come up with a result of his activity, and then pressed Anderloni to accept that other tried within the " normal cooperation".
It is assumptions, I am aware of that. But sometimes we must look behind the lines to have a impression of what really was going on.
The narrow side bodied came in 1953 parallel to coupe wide side and the 6C3000CM, so a lot of thing was going on Via Ludovico da Breme in this period.
The 6C3000CM, according to Fusi, was produced in
Whey do you suppose that there was only one spider. Wu usually have fait in the statement by Fusi, he states serie 1361 there was 6 chassis and 6 engines, no chassis or engine numbers, ( Fusi third edition) not mentioned.
You don't regard the 6C3000PR as a part of the wide interpretation of Disco Volante, whey not.
The reason whey Colombo left Alfa Romeo to Lancia and the Busso taking over, was that the last expression from the new generations engineers, that had also led to Janos move to Lancia.
Or was it only the result of closing down on the racing activities
