1991 ALFA ROMEO SZ Sprint Zagato ECC-086

 

ZAR162000*03000440 7500 miles

 

Remarkable, show car example with very, very low miles and many tasteful upgrades. Truly a one-of-a-kind exotic. This SZ has a very low 12,500 original kilometers and is in excellent condition (less than 7,500k miles). A very unique and cool SZ in show car condition.

 

This awesome exotic Alfa was a recent find that we have just imported. Originally sold in Europe, this SZ was purchased by a Japanese collector, nicely upgraded and driven very sparingly, just enough to stay in shape without getting used. We discovered it in Japan and brought it to the US under the 25-year exemption rules.

 

Original paint is near perfect and the interior is in beautiful shape. Sparco racing seats upholstered in the original leather have been installed with 4 point harness belts. Custom floor and trunk mats add a stylish accent. Steering wheel is a limited edition Momo style and a dynamic custom shifter has been installed. Overall interior condition is virtually flawless.

 

Under the hood, the entire compartment has been detailed with many show car touches, custom hoses, power-coated airbox and valve covers, color accent wiring etc. Starts, runs and drives like new. Sounds great, no issues, no problems with running gear or electronics.

 

Wheels have been upgraded to modular style with alloy rims and gold coated centers.

 

A stunning example, with very low mileage in superb condition. Can be driven and enjoyed now, shows beautifully now. Needs nothing. Ready for exciting driving and attention getting showing.

 

Offered at $89,995

Price plus tax and DMV fees in California, USA.

BACKGROUND Alfa Romeo SZ Coupe

 

Created as a halo car for Alfa, overall performance/value ratio compared favorably with period Ferrari 348 model.

 

Also known as Il Mostro in Italy, and revered as one of the most exotic Alfa Romeos produced in the modern age.

 

The Alfa Sprint Zagato was unveiled as a concept show car, the ES 30, at the 1989 Geneva automobile show. Reception was very positive and the production version debuted later that year. The SZ was a very significant flagship car for Alfa Romeo, developed as a high performance GT with a unique advanced styling featuring composite body panels, it was based on the chassis of the Alfa Romeo 75 model (Milano in the US market).

 

Styling was primarily done in house at Alfa, and production was sourced at the Zagato works in Terrazzano di Rho near the Alfa factory in Arese. Interestingly, the SZ was one of the first applications of the CAD process to automobile design. The SZ was envisioned as an experimental coupé and a return to Alfa Romeo’s legendary sporting image. It was also to be a symbol of pure sports car design without compromise. The production car was very true to these ideals and to the legacy of the extreme coupés that distinguish Alfa’s history and relationship with Zagato : the 1900 SSZ 1954, the Giulietta SZ (Sprint Zagato) 1960, the Alfa Giulia TZ and TZ2 and the 2600 SZ 1965, Junior Z and Alfa Z6.

 

The powertrain of the SZ features an all alloy 3-liter Alfa Romeo V6 and a 5-speed transaxle. The rev happy Alfa V6 produces 207 HP and is a joy to experience. The compact SZ is 160” long, only 51.6” tall and sits on a wheelbase of 98.8”. Curb weight is listed at 2,769 lbs. Performance is very strong with 0-60 mph in under 7.0 seconds and a top speed of over 150 mph.

 

The SZ featured some unique technical details. Handling is outstanding, as the chassis was tuned by Giorgio Pianta, engineer with Abrath racing and Alfa Corse, and team manager of the Fiat and Lancia rally teams. Many suspension components were taken directly from the Alfa 75 IMSA racer. Weight distribution is near the ideal 50/50 front / rear. Hydraulic dampers were made by Koni and offer a feature to raise the car by 50 mm for speed bump clearance, as the static ground clearance is very low. The front suspension is via torsion bars and the rear a De Dion tube with inboard rear brake discs. This combination produced outstanding qualities and the SZ can sustain over 1.1 G in cornering on road tires, and up to 1.4 G with race rubber. This remains excellent performance even by today’s standards.

 

The interior is entirely bespoke to the SZ and offers very sporting accommodations for two in well bolstered bucket seats. There is a definite “race car” ambience and emphasis on functionality rather than luxury, but the SZ is still a very comfortable GT. One nice feature is the considerable and useful luggage space under the rear hatchback.
