The Zagato-designed Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa has been unveiled at the Villa d’Este concours in Italy and won the award for best concept car at the event. Created by Zagato in Milan, Italy it is a tribute celebrating Alfa’s 100th anniversary.
The concept is equipped with Alfa 8C Competizione’s V8 with manually adjustable engine calibration and linked to a six-speed sequential gearbox. The setup is a combination between a carbon fiber body and a rear wheel drive tubular structure. The whole vehicle weighs only 850kg.
The racer is outfitted with 18 inch wheels with 245/645/R18 Pirelli PZero tires at the front and 285/645/R18 at the rear. The TZ3 Corsa sprints from 0 to 100km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of over 300km/h.
The design brings back memories from its 60s-era predecessors, the TZ1 and TZ2. For an overview of the wonderful car check out the gallery below!
This Zagato TZ3 and Pinninfarina’s spider concept triumph over Bertone’s unrealistic design unveiled at Geneva. Zagato should be given the contract to develop a realistically obtainable production road going coupe of this TZ3.
No ‘double bubble’ roof though…
The price for this great design is no rear view at all, but with these large flat panels under the doors it’s the perfect car to park like a Countach (seated outside).
Having just seen a “bread wagon” at the 2010 Essen Techno Classica, I can fully appreciate the evolution of the TZ3. The TZ3’s ancestors looked like kit cars in comparison to this! Just a bizarre weight to power ratio…
Admit it it is really hot.Not many cars in our days are by special delivery.
