The Giulietta body-styling by Alfa Romeo during the 1960s certainly fits well within the romantic mood of the 60s and the place Alfa Romeo holds in the heart of many of its passionate fans. One of the most passionate and evoking of the Giulietta body-styles would be the Sprint Zagato. Boasting of elements from Alfa's extensive racing heritage, and yet, having supple and appealing lines, it would be little wonder the Sprint Zagato would be one of the most desirable of the Giulietta line. Much of the draw and exciting surrounding the car would be the sheer amount of time Zagato would spend on each and every body that would be mated to the Alfa Romeo chassis. Apparently no fewer than 300 hours would be spent refining and making sure each body fits perfectly with its mate. For this reason alone it would not be at all surprising that less than 200 examples were ever to be produced. Premiered at the 1960 Geneva Motor Show, the SZ or 'Sprint Zagato' was intended to be a special version of Alfa Romeo's Giulietta more suited for competition. To keep the SZ as light as possible, the interior is devoid of non-essential items and Perspex was used for the side windows.
The car has been delivered new in 1962 in Italy to Fiorenzo Genta of Turin, who takes part in October to the sprint race Alghero-Scala Piccada. Later, he'll take part to many hill climb races: Stallavena-Boscochiesanuova, Bologna-Passo della Raticosa, Garessio-Colle S. Bernardo, Bolzano-Mendola, Cesana-Sestriere, Aosta-Pila, Sanremo-Colle dei Fiori. At the end of the racing season 1963, the car is sold to Claudio Maglioli, test driver then most famous tuner of the Lancia Stratos, and brother of the most famous Umberto Maglioli, Formula 1 driver in the 50's for Ferrari, Maserati and Porsche, and winner of the 1954 Carrera Panamericana. In 1990 the car has been exhibited on the Zagato booth at the Turin Motor Show. After having spent the biggest part of its life in Italy with identified owners, the car was exported to England and then came back to Italy again. Purchased by its current owner in 2013, the latter commissioned the famous workshop Furiani Racing to make a race engine, maintain the gearbox, set up the chassis and the brakes, the rest being entrusted to the famous ATS workshop in Le Mans. More than 150,000 Ç have been invested. Since then, the car makes the happiness of his driver at the Tour Auto and Modena Cento Ore, among others. The car is now offered for sale with its FIVA and FIA HTP certificates, serviced and ready to race. Also, a complete rear diff with longer range, spare wheels and a set of front disc brakes will be provided.
