Following the dramatic Perana, iconic styling house Zagato appears to be on a roll, especially when judged by its latest creation, the "breadvan"- shaped TZ3 Corsa, a car whose styling harks back to the beautiful TZ and TZ2 models of the '60s.
Said to honour the memories of the Scuderia Ferrari racing cars of the '20s and '30s, the Alfa Corse cars of the '40s and '50s, Autodeltas of the '60 and '70s and the Scuderia Zagato cars of the '80s and '90s, the TZ3 Corse is a racing car, celebrating 100 years of racing and victories across the 20th century.
The car was commissioned by Alfa Romeo Zagato collector Martin Kapp and recently unveiled at the Villa D'Este concours meeting. The TZ3 is based on a mono shell carbon fibre tubular chassis with a tubular frame and lightweight aluminium body. Power is provided by a 4,2-litre V8 developing 309 kW. This engine is mated with a six-speed manual gearbox and features manually-adjustable engine calibration.
