The TZ3 Stradale is a result of the “TZ3 program” managed by Zagato to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Alfa Romeo (1910-2010). The program started in 2009 with the manufacturing of the “one off” TZ3 Corsa which won the Villa D’Este Design Concept Award in 2010 and followed with nine (9) TZ3 Stradale.
Alfa Romeo Zagato TZ3 Stradale is based on the Viper ACR mechanical chassis with a carbon fiber body. “Bellezza necessaria” is the inspiration of this car which matches for the first time an USA power train and can represent the first American Alfa Romeo.
The first TZ3 Stradale has been delivered to the US Alfa Romeo and Zagato collector (and Saratoga Automobile Museum’s board member) Eric King. The TZ3 Stradale n°2 and n°3 will be delivered in Japan and Europe.
Alfa Romeo Zagato TZ3 Stradale is mentioned by the automaker as a Design Exercise and an Avant-garde car, not a race car like the TZ3 Corsa. The TZ3 Stradale is a tribute to the Alfa Romeo and Zagato street legal heritage and just 9 examples in the world.
The TZ3 Stradale celebrates the road legal heritage of Alfa Romeo Zagato coupés:
RLSS, 1500, 1750, 2300 and 2900 Zagato (20s and 30s)
6C 2500 Panoramica, 1900 SSZ and the Giulietta SVZ (40s and 50s)
SZ, 2600 SZ, Giulia TZ and Junior Z (60s and 70s)
S.Z. and R.Z. (80s and 90s)
