Carrozzeria Falco was sold to two lawyers from Milan in 1926, and lawyer Bianchi Anderloni (who had been a test driver) took over design and engineering whilst his partner Gaetano Ponzoni took over the business side. Touring specialised in lightweight construction, initially with the Weymann licensed fabric covered wooden frames, but later with their very own Superleggera system. 'Super Light' was patented as 'Superleggera' in 1936 was a system of small bore tubes made to the car's shape and then covered by alloy panels. After World War Two a number of manufacturers licensed 'Superleggera', notably Aston Martin, but as the 1960s dawned monocoque construction saw manufacturers develop their own skills and turn away from coachbuilders. Touring ceased production in 1966. Carrozzeria Marazzi has revived the 'Touring' name for cars designed since 2006.
