Alfa Romeo SZ

Alfa Romeo SZ

The Alfa Romeo SZ or Sprint Zagato was a limited edition sportscar unveiled at the 1989 Geneva Motor Show. Much was expected from this model as it was produced under the partnership of Zagato, Romeo and Fiat. The same Robert Opron, who styled the stunner Citroen SM, which was a marriage of Citroen and Maserati, conceived the design of this car with finishing touches by Antonio Castellana. 1036 coupes with injection moulded plastic exteriors were manufactured before production of the ES -30 or Experimental Sportscar 3.0L, was halted. The ES 30 is one of the last models with rear wheel drive brought out by Alfa Romeo before it was taken over by Fiat. It is fairly priced at $65,000, maybe because it is a very different looking, rare piece of architecture that still has a few admirers even now.

Interior

The interior is finished with tan leather, common to all cars with a hard leather covered steering wheel and a rack and pinion gear system. Simple and bold design of the dashboard in carbon fibre houses the instrument panel. Interestingly the SZ is fitted with a knob on the dashboard which can adjust the ground clearance by 50 mm by a hydraulic damper system made by Koni. Seats are made from soft, supple leather that are heavenly to sink into. They are also sporty looking and have adjustable supports. The interiors are done up in only one color - tan.

Exterior

This hard top, two seater coupe was produced in only one color combination of grey-headed chilly red with the only exception of one black car produced for Andrea Zagato. The body is a steel shell construction with plastic panels. Headlights are square shaped, in a row of three on either side. Extensive paneling work throughout the exterior form interesting ridges, angular edges and shapes, right from the bonnet and sides, to the rear boot and fenders. Rearlights are also square shaped with other brake and turning lights empaneled in tinted plastic above the rear bumper. The front wheels are 7J x 16, while the rear are 8J x 16 with a wheel base of 98.8 inches. The only round shape that stands out are in the wheels of the car with perforations instead of spokes. Alfa Romeo insignia adorn the bonnet and boot with a Zagato Milano signature on the side panel. A black rear spoiler gives it a sporty look that does catch the eye of those seeking something different.
