An American in Italian leather? The combination of the elegance identified with Zagato and the vulgar character of the Viper can be hugely successful. For some, though, it’s too much of a rattling mix…
And there are bound to be alfists and American muscle car enthusiasts among them. However, that didn’t stop Zagato’s designers from taking a risk. They created the ‘first American Alfa Romeo’, or rather limited themselves to designing a completely new look for the Dodge Viper ACR.
Alfa Romeo TZ3 features:
- Top speed – 320 km/h
- Acceleration to 100 km/h – 3.5 s
- Horsepower – 640 hp
- Specific power – 441 hp/t
- Engine volume – 8382 cm³
- Vehicle weight 1,450 kg
In the style of the TZ3 Stradale we find quotations from the historic TZ1 and TZ2 models, as well as from last year’s TZ3 Corsa prototype. The carbon fibre bodywork hides a 600bhp 8.4-litre V-10, paired to a six-speed manual gearbox.
Zagato will build nine Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale cars. We already know that the first one went to collector Eric King in the USA, the second will go to Japan and the third will stay in Europe. Price? For insiders only.
