With the body panels removed, it is now possible to see at first hand the sophisticated structure of the tubular space frame that provides a supporting scaffold for the Touring Superleggera body.
- When stripped down, the vehicle weighs approximately 850 kg. The CMC replica offers revealing looks into the interior of its cockpit, the assemblage of its suspension system, and the arrangement of its drive chain, complete with engine and transmission. Also clearly visible are details of the cooling system, the powerful fuel tank and the housing of the spare wheel.A centerpiece in the front chassis is the impressive 8-cylinder in-line-engine with a maximum output of 220 hp. It featured the relocation and integration of the 4-gear transmission to the rear axle as a block unit that came to be known as transaxle. This arrangement was motivated by the need to shift weight towards the rear of the vehicle. Likewise, the placement of the huge fuel tank right behind the driver’s seat over the rear axle contributed to a balanced weight distribution. Hydraulic brakes on all four wheels served to ensure a reliable and necessary delay when the car slowed down from a top speed of approximately 245 km/hr.
