Torino Design is one of the most innovative companies of the Italian panorama. Since the beginning they have pioneered a creative approach towards automotive design through a wide range of activities, spacing from styling to CAS 3D models, from feasibility engineering to full size models and running prototypes.
Torino Design was founded on the idea of putting together the best people so to offer high quality services, focusing on competence, reputation and vision. A premium design house with worldwide experience and premium brands as clients.

Thanks to their ability to adapt to the single request of every client and trend of the global market, they have built a solid reputation worldwide. Working efficiently and discretely they gave birth to more than 200 projects, producing more than 200 full scale models for clients all over the world. It isn’t for nothing that they worked for Ferrari, McLaren, BMW, Geely and many others.
Now the Italian car designer is preparing a new compact supercar that will be equipped with a V12 engine producing over 800 Hp. The body and chassis will be made of carbon, while it will have a length of 4.4 meters, a width of 2 meters, and a height of 1.2 meters.
The Super Sport has been created for a Torino Design client who plans to build 20 to 50 units based on the concept. A full-size styling model will debut together with a carbon fiber running chassis that will underpin the production model. Torino Design CEO Roberto Piatti – an engineer who had previously worked for at I.De.A. Institute and the Stile Bertone design centre – said more details about the Super Sport and the commercial plans of the unnamed client who commissioned the concept will be disclosed at the car’s unveiling. The Super Sport will make its debut at the event ‘Parco Valentino – Salone & Gran Premio’ in 11 to 14 June in Turin, Italy.
The event aims to create a similar atmosphere of the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed held on the grounds of Goodwood House, West Sussex, England, every summer, as well as the Valentino Gran Prix races held between 1935 and 1954 in Turin’s Valentino Park.
The event will recall the past glory days of the Turin auto show that was held every two years from 1900 to 2000. Industry executives and designers from around the world attended the show to see debuts from renowned coachbuilders and design houses such as Bertone, Ghia, I.De.A. Institute, Italdesign-Giugiaro, Michelotti, Pininfarina and Vignale. The show fell into decline in its latter years and stopped taking place after visitor and exhibitor numbers dwindled.
