Italian coachbuilder Touring has unveiled a new production model - a chic supercar called the Superleggera Berlinetta Lusso - at this week's Geneva motor show.

Based on Ferrari's current flagship GT car, the F12, the Lusso has been painstakingly re-bodied for a more elegant, classic appearance. Most notable amongst the revisions are a smoothing of the F12's heavily creased bodywork, and a large, retro-style grille that dominates the car' nose.

Inside, however, the cabin is completely unchanged from the donor model, with the Lusso retaining the digital dashboard and centre console layout of the Ferrari.

Also kept unchanged from the F12 is its snarling 6.3-litre V12 engine, which develops a heady 731bhp. Touring claims its model's performance figures are identical to the Ferrari's, so expect a 0-62mph time of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 211mph.

While initially showcased as a concept model, Autocar reports that Touring is to put the Berlinetta Lusso into a strictly limited production run of just five units.

This is not the first time Touring has wowed the crowds at the Geneva motor show. In 2012 it lifted the covers of the Disco Volante, a voluptuous, hand-beaten creation based on the Alfa Romeo 8C.

Prior to the Lusso's unveiling at Geneva, Touring released a short teaser video, highlighting the company's connection to Ferrari, including images of the classic 166 MM Touring, which you can view below. We think this is a fitting latest chapter in the Touring story, do you? Let us know in the comments section below.
