The Alfa SZ, built between 1989-1991, was an attempt to revive Alfa Romeo’s spotting heritage. Initial design was by Robert Opron, famous also for the design of the Citroen SM, while final details and interior were designed by Antonio Castellana. It was built by Zagato using unconventional thermo-plactic injection moulded composite body panels, helping achieve a low kerb weight of 1,260kg. Suspension was from the Alfa 75 Grp A/IMSA car, modified by Giorgio Pianta, manager and designer for the Lancia world rally team, and used a Koni damper system. Needles to say the cars handling is superb with measurements of 1.1-1.4G achieved under testing. The engine was the legendary Busso V6, one of the most sonorous and revered engines of all time. In this model producing 207bhp, which given the aforementioned light weight and handling made for a serious drivers machine.
