Sz - Targa Florio

HISTORY OF THE SZ - Part 3

Alfa Romeo finally decided to legitimise the Zagato connection and entered into a design phase resulting in the Sprint Zagato (SZ) in December 1959.
Using the short wheelbase and more powerful engine of the SS, combined with the lightwight and functionality of a Zagato body and ideal compromise was reached. The SZ had arrived. Over the next few years, the SZ went on to achieve sparkling competition success for Alfa Romeo on the race track, in rallies and hillclimbs.
