Audemars Touring Automotive
The finest Automobiles

Image


History...


>Audemars Touring was founded in 1961 by Carlo Audemars, an ambitious young coachbuilder who wanted to make cars a from of art. Carlo started the company in April 1962 with the name of Audemars Touring Sport Automobiles. The company was situated then in a tiny workshop, in the center of Catello di Franco a beautiful village just outside the city of San Venice. The beautiful Monte Marean riviera is the perfect area for creating automotive art as Carlo used to call his creations. There were a lot of automobile companies in that time as there was a big economic growth in Monte Mare, but Carlo didnt want to create simple cars which would be driven by the middle class he wanted to make the finest automobiles in tiny scales for the fortunate people who could afford it.
After some months he hired 40 people and started working on a very iconic car which was copied by a lot of companies and would become a classic, the Superleggera TZ1.
Image

The Superleggera TZ1 when presented was one of the most beautiful cars made and it surely got some attention as King Giorgio III ordered a red one in 1963. The Superleggera TZ1 was presented in the 1962 San Venice Concours D'elegance one of the great events where the elite of Monte Mare used to go and show off their wealth. The TZ1 became iconic not only because the King had purchased one, but because the top actor of the time Steve Queen, a great petrolhead, used the TZ1 in races all around the country. Only 23 TZ1s were made and there are only 15 known examples today.
But the history of the Superleggera TZ1 doesnt stop there. In 1965 a widely known Arab multimillionaire, a petroleum mogul, ordered a very special TZ1. He already had a standard TZ1 but he also wanted a convertible version. The company hadnt planned to produce a convertible version so he ordered one.
Image

The Superleggera TZ1 Convertible was a one-off, as the buyer paid a lot of money to keep it unique and exclusive. Before its delivery to the customer, the car was shown in various shows. It was declared the most beautiful car in the Monte Mare Concours D'elegance, a very important title for a small company. The convertible was re-bought by the company some years ago, and its worth today is estimated to be more than 4 million euros.
In 1968 Audemars Touring presented the Superleggera TZ2 again in the San Venice Concours D'elegance. The TZ2 had a lot of styling cues borriwed from the TZ1 and it soon became the one of the finest automobiles of the time.
Image

The Superleggera TZ2 was more track focused that the TZ1 and so its aerodynamics were more effective and active. The V8 superlight engine was one of the best that time and it could give the car some incredible performance. The TZ2 was for some time the fastest car in the world. A slightly tuned version of the the car took part in the 24 hours of the Riviera in 1969. Carlo himself drove the car. The TZ2 Corsa as it was called finished 1st giving the car a great reputation in the motor community as it was considered a very difficult event. Only 54 TZ2 and 10 TZ2 Corsa units were made.
In April 1991 the TZS was presented in the San Venice Concours D'elegance as all great models were presented there. The TZS was an evolution if the TZ1 and TZ2 and it had the same possitive reactions as those. It was elected for the 3rd time the most beautiful car of the show, giving Audemars Touring TZ saga a new record.
Image

The TZS had for the first time a quite luxurious profile, consodering the spartan beauty of the previous models. The TZS wore as tradition demanded a superlight V8 engine which produced 390bhp and had a top speed of 295km/h. The car was shown in auto shows all around Monte Mare and soon a pretty big customer list considering it's price. Only 85 units were made, and you can purchase one today for a million euros are there are some for sale.
In March 2011 the Superleggera TZ3 was unveiled in the 2011 Can Venice Concours D'elegance.
Image

You can learn all of the details in the car's description bellow. The TZ3 will be made in limited amounts every year as it is handmade from scratch. A convertible version is cyrrently developed. Purchase your own Superleggera TZ3 by forming the application in the car's description.


Present, future & Customer service...


Image

>The company today is run by Jean Audemars, who is the CEO and at the same time the PR & Management director. There are 70 people currently working in the small workshop in the village of Castello di Franco. There are various departments in the factory the biggest one is the engine department where 15 people work to make the incredible and famous V8 superlight engines.
The present of the company is quite possitive as the company has a basic wealthy clientele formed by true car entusiasts who will follow the company's products. The company was always focusing on car enthusiasts, and it is formed by most of its clients today.
The future of Audemars Touring Automotive isnt assured of course but with the right management and investments the company will stay in the family and keep its luxury profilem because that is the purpose always make handmade automotive art, as Carlo Audemars used to say. The model line up will always be limited and small and we are currently in the final design stage of the Superleggere Stradale the evolution of the TZ3. The stradale will be unveiled in a few months but the presentation hasnt been decided yet.
Customers are the most important element in the company's structure. All of our cars are made upon request so with no customers no cars would be made. The customers can customize everything on their car, as each and every vehicle we make is unique.


Design Studio & Services...


Image

>Audemars Touring Automotive it is not only an exclusive car manufactor but inside the factory there is also a design studio which can also design cars for other companies upon request. The chief designer of the studio is Franco Castello and there are 3 more designers working there. The Audemars Touring Design studio has been active the last 8 years and it had designed more than 10 cars for other companies all around the world. The studio's design services offer design in stage level 1 and 2. Stage 1 is sketching and renderings of the car and Stage 2 is the making of a 1/8 scale model with clay. The other stages such as the engine is made by the company requesting it. The design team will be in touch with the company as the making process start and evolves. If your company needs a car with beauty, style and passion the Audemars Touring Design team will gladly help. Unfortunately the status of the team wont let design any kind of car, but you should specify what you want. So if a company needs something new they should contact the team and specify what they want, then the design team will decide wether carry on or not with the project.


Workshop, location & Chateau...


Image

>The workshop is located into the grounds of a 17th chateau which was bought and restored in 1970 by Carlo Audemars, and it became the small factory of the company. The workshop is actually behind the chateau, and it is a very modern glass factory just the right size for creating our cars. Inside the chateau you will find offices, a customer area, a great dining room/ ballroom, meeting room and the design studio. There are 2 suites in the factory for guesting our customers, who want to get involved into the building of their own car. The workshop is very modern as mentioned and it is perfectly comfortable for the 70 people working in it. There are various sections: the assembly section, the engine & chassis section, the interior & materials section and the body design section. The factory has a lot of important machinery such as the high pressure carbon fiber ovens which are used to make carbon fiber parts. The company has 2 of them and when they are not used by our company they are used to make carbon fiber parts for other companies. There is also a highly-secured warehouse where a lot of historic cars are kept such as a one-off TZ1 roasdter made for an Arab gas mogul who died 10 years ago as mentioned in the history section of the storefront. The worth of the TZ1 roaster could be more than 4.000.000 euros today as it is in a perfect state. More unique cars are in there such as a 4 door version of the TZ2 which was also made for a very wealthy customer who wanted to carry his children with him. A superleggera TZ2 Stradale is also kept in the warehouse, only 3 Stradales were made and it was a more track focused version of the TZ2. The TZ2 Stradale has an estimated worth of 6 million euros. The cars are shown every 2 or 3 years in exclusive events all around Monte Mare.

Audemars Touring Superleggera TZ3
When automobiles become Art

Image


Audemars Touring Superleggera TZ3


>The Audemars Touring Superleggera TZ3 is a perfect example of Automotive art. The Superleggera TZ3 is for the real car entusiasts and for those who can appreciate an automobile. The car is an evolution of the Superleggera TZ1 & TZ2 cars that made Audemars Touring well known in the automotive history. The TZ3 is what we could call a track focused supercar, as all of the TZ saga models are designed to be able to compete in races, as the racing history of the company has shown. The TZ3 is very focused on superlight performance thats why the car has a quite Spartan personality. The TZ3 wears a V8 superlight engine, handmade by the small team of engineers in the small village of Castello di Franco. As the TZ3 is handmade it takes about 4 or 5 months to make one, and a single engine is completed in 1 or 2 weeks. The chassis and body of the car are made with carbon fiber and aluminium to keep the weight down, but safety is not a problem as it has an interior layout made out of titanium. The TZ3 has been designed with the previous TZ models as a base but of course with a lot of new features to make it modern and an opponent to other supercars of it's league. Aerodynamic efficiency is also one of the strong points of the car, as the codatronca back gives the car as much downforce as it needs, and also helps the air circulate through the car, it also makes the car more agile on corners. The acceleration on the sport mode is mind-blowingly fast as it gets from 0-100 in 2.8s enough to give anyone some serious adrenaline dosis. The engine is located in the front, and the gearbox on the back of the car to help weight distribution. The Superleggera TZ3 will be made upon request so no specific amount of cars has been decided yet, but we are planning to make a maximum number of 40 cars per year, with a price of 920.000 Euros.

Interior Design & Materials


Image

>The interior of the Superleggera TZ3 is as the name of the car suggests light, light and a beautifuly made. The interior has a very peculiar and eccentric design and it will certainly attract the customer. Leather, alcantara and carbon fiber have been combined in the interior and it certainly have a very special impact on the design, as it is something innovative and something new in the supercar world. There isnt a basic dashboard but the main consol is connected with the steering wheel base. A small 5" screen is in front of the driver just above the steering wheel. In that screen the speedometer and all the other features are displayes and with the touch of a button the GPS navigation pops out (The speedometer will be transfered to the small screen in the center consol as soon as the GPS is active). There is even a small carbon fiber glovebox on the interior, and a superb B&O sound system. There is a small manettino on the steering wheel with 3 modes Normal, Sport and Race. The suspension, stability and power of the car are adjusted depending on the option chosen by the driver. The Normal is the most comfortable and it is recommended for normal every-day driving. The interior wont be exclusive to the coupe version as the TZ3 Roadster is currently developed, it will have a very similar interior.

Image

>The Audemars Touring TZ3 Superleggera GT is a limited edition of the standard TZ3. The GT Edition is one of the most exclusive, fast and beautiful cars on the market, and it has been made for our best current & future customers. The lucky owners will have the chance to own and drive a very special automobile made with passion by the artisans at the Audemars Touring small factory. The GT Edition has a lot of unique features and changes both on the exterior, interior and the performance of the car. The most notable exterior changes are the new superlight wheels, specially made to improve the handling and the grip. Air intakes have been added to the hood and on the side of the car in order to channel air to the back, and of course to cool the V8 engine. The changes on the interior aren't visible. There has been an extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminium on the interior to make the car as light as possible. The GT Edition is 200kg lighter than the standard TZ3, that is very positive as it improves the speed, handling and balance of the car. The GT Edition has the same V8 Superlight engine, with some changes on the power. The GT Edition now produces 560bhp at 6.000rpm, and it has a top speed of 340km/h. The GT Edition is going to be one of the most exclusive TZ3 variants, with only 5 units made at a price of 1.150.000 euros each.

Dear Sir,

It is not often that I order my automobiles personally, but in this case I feel the need to do so. I would like to place an order for a total of three Audemars Touring Superleggera TZ3. One of those vehicles will be entirely original, as advertised. It should be red, with a Magnolia leather interior.

The second and third vehicles will feature engine and drivetrain modifications which I hope you are able to implement. The engine should be equipped with a racing-spec camshaft, racing-spec head gaskets, high compression pistons, a shorter air intake (with a modified sport intake manifold), a racing exhaust system (with a modified sport exhaust manifold) and various other modifications, including an ECU that has been programmed to fit the modified engine. These specifications should make the 6.2-litre V8 capable of reaching 700 bhp. Further modifications should be a short-shift 6-speed manual gearbox and an uprated braking system with carbon-ceramic brakes.

The first of these two modified vehicles should be a roadgoing vehicle. It should be white with a cocoa leather interior, and retain as much of its stock look as possible. The second vehicle will be delivered in black, and this vehicle should be a track car for racing purposes. It should have a rollcage and racing seats with five-point harnesses, as well as a dashboard with STACK instruments and a removable steering wheel. It should have an enlarged fuel tank for use in endurance racing, magnesium wheels for reduced weight and further weight reduction measures. The windows should be made out of perspex for weight reduction and strength. The window winding mechanisms may be eliminated for weight saving purposes. The vehicle should, in general, be capable of participating in endurance races.

It is my hope you are able to build these vehicles for me. The vehicles will become part of one of the largest automobile collections in the world, and will be exhibited regularly, but also used frequently. Below I have filled in the application form, but I assume this is nothing but a formality following the descriptions given in this letter.

From: Carlo Audemars, sales manager



>We will gladly make 3 Superleggera TZ3s for Mr. Van Luxemburg, and we are sure he and his family will highly enjoy the beauty, exclusivity and the passion the TZ3 carries around. The Superleggera has been made for people who appreciate automobiles as art and thats why we are very happy to have the Grand Duke as one of our customers. His car collection is very well known all around the world for its size and the masterpieces it contains.

Image

The first Superleggera TZ3 requested will feature a red exterior and magnolia leather on the interior. The red TZ3 will be normal as requested and it will feature all of the equipment mentioned in the car's description as well as the standard V8 superlight engine which produces 510bhp.

Image

The second vehicle will feature a white exterior and cocoa interior. As each TZ3 is made upon request customers have a great variety of options and features, so the implement of those requsted features wont be a problem at all. The only thing it will affect is the price of the car/s and its delivery date. As requested the camshaft operating valves will be replaced with racing spec camshafts, something that will affect the performance of the car. The gaskets will also be racing-spec and a compression ring will be placed allowing higher flange compression while preventing gasket failure. The exhaust wont be a problem, as it will also be replaced by a racing spec one from the 2010 Superleggera TZ3 GT that raced in the 24h Porto Royale endurance race. The noise will be louder we warn. Then the car has already some top quality ceramic brakes, so those will be kept. Indeed our engineers made some calculations and those modifications will increase importantly the power and top speed of the car, at around 700bhp and a top speed of 337km/h, the weight will decrease by 40kg. The price of the car along with the modifications will be 1.040.000 Euros.

Image

Finally we have the special edition car you requested the Superleggera TZ3 Corsa (Thats the name we give to our top performance cars requested by customers). This TZ3 will feature a black exterior and a black cloth interior. The changes requested for the white TZ3 will also be implemented in the black TZ3. As this Black TZ3 is wanted to be a racing purpose vehicle we also took some liberties in designing the interior. If agreed the car could have a similar interior with the 2010 Superleggera TZ3 GT. This interior is completely racing focused as carbon fiber is used in a lot of parts such as the steering wheel (which is removable as requested). The seats will be lighter and the fuel tank bigger borrowing it from the TZ3 GT. The front air intakes at also bigger and an additional side air intake has been added to make the aerodynamics and the engine colling more effective. The wheels will be made by magnesium and roll cages will be added in the interior. All those changes will decrease the weight a lot, making it 1.070 thats 180kg lighter than the original car. If wanted a spoiler will be added in the back, although the downforce is very good. All those changes make the car lighter and more powerful and it will surely have some presence in endurance races. The price of this very special Superleggera will be 1.190.000 Euros because of the extensive changes made.

The Grand Duke shall receive the red TZ3 with the magnolia interior in about 5 months, but the other 2 TZ3s which implement a lot of non-standard features will need an extra 1.5- 2 months in order to be tested and made as good as possible. We will keep in touch with the Grand Duke and his personal engineers, and we would really like a visit from him to our Castello Di Franco factory so he can take part in the making of his cars and be present for any changes he want to make. We are very happy our cars will be part of the Grand Duke's collection and we would like to inform him that a convertible versio will be available in some months, the convertible version will be more powerful and limited to 10-15 units.
Total:3.150.000 Euros
Thank you

Audemars Touring Superleggera TZ4 Stradale- Teaser

Image

>The Superleggera TZ4 Stradale will be presented soon in our storefront and this is a preview of the car. The TZ4 Stradale is basically a more luxurious and more affordable car, based on the Superleggera TZ3. The TZ4 Stradale is more of a Grand Tourer and it isnt track focused like the TZ3 (It doesnt mean it wont be able to perform on a race track of course), but it is based on driving pleasure. More details soon, the only thing we can disclose right now is the price, so a TZ4 Stradale will se you back 720.000 Euros...

RE: Audemars Touring Superleggera TZ3 Monterrey Special Edition

Greetings Mr. Audemars:

When I placed an order for a customized Audemars Touring Superleggera TZ3, I did not know what to expect. I was assured by a close friend of mine (who owns a Superleggera TZ3) that the final product would turn out ok. Well, he was wrong - the car looks great! Never did I imagine that so much detail, craftsmanship, and time would be spent on this automobile. It truly is a work of art. The full payment for this car has been wired to the Monte Mare Royal Bank as previously requested. I am interested to know if perhaps your company, Audemars Touring Automotive, would like to discuss a possible business deal with Energizia Incorporated. Let me know if you wish to do so by means of more secure communications. Thank you once again for creating this magnificent automobile for me - I shall truly enjoy driving it. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Paolo Mancini,

CEO of Energizia Inc.

FROM THE DESK OF GRAND DUKE KOEN VAN LUXEMBURG

Dear Sir,

I am glad Audemars Touring can be of service to me. The specifications presented are indeed as desired, and I hope to make several visits to Monte Mare and specifically Castello di Franco during the construction of the ordered vehicles, and of course to eventually take delivery of the respective cars. Advance payments totalling 1.5 million Euros will be made to Audemars Touring in order to cover the costs of materials and development for these vehicles. The remaining 1.65 million Euros will be paid shortly before delivery of these cars.

Having heard of both the TZ4 and the convertible TZ3, this letter can also be considered a pre-order for one of each of these models, to be added to my collection.

Kind regards,

HRH Koen van Luxemburg
Grand Duke of Van Luxemburg
Count of Philipsbaai, Kariba and Rehoboth, etc. etc.
