Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa to be revealed at Concorso d'Eleganza


Zagato announced they will unveil the Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa at the 2010 Villa D’Este Concorso d’Eleganza on April 24, 2010. As the third part of the celebration of Alfa Romeo’s centenary anniversary, the TZ3 Corsa is a symbol of the historical cooperation between the two brands. The first two parts being the Bertone and Pininfarina models unveiled at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show . The idea of "utilitarian beauty" found in the TZ3 Corsa is rooted in a philosophy of functionality and inspired by the tradition of motor racing shared by Zagato and Alfa Romeo since 1919.

The original Alfa Romeo TZ (Tubolare Zagato) was a small sports car built from 1963 to 1967. The TZ1 featured a 1570 cc twin cam engine that delivered a total of 160 Hp. It was capable of a top speed of 134 mph. The TZ2 was revealed in 1965. It featured a new fibreglass bodywork, but it was built only as a racing car. There were only 112 TZ1 units built and 12 TZ2, making from the sports car quite a desired car among the collectors.

However, much like Zagato’s recent GTZ, this will likely be a one-make race car that likely won’t be raced, but rather collected by the wealthy individual who commissioned them.

The 8C Competizione also hinted at motorsports as well but has never had factory-supported racing. This will probably be first 8C variant that has real racing intentions.

Alfa designers look at the grill of this car and take note. Also look at where the headlights are in relation to it. This is what an Alfa grill should look like, not that over-sized Edsel thing on the MiTo and Giulietta. Take a look at the back of the TZ2, that is what an Alfa hatchback should look like. Now take the MiTo and Giulietta platforms and make cars that look like this.

Well in his time, a DOHC engine with 134MPH is already menacing but i guess AR just want to show their humble beginning to the people. Plus this is a great car for geneva car show.
