Final Alfa Romeo Zagato Stradale TZ3 will debut at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance

Article by Christian A., on March 1, 2013

At the 18th annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance field on March 10, the last of just 9 custom built ALFA Romeo Stradale TZ3s will make its debut. The event takes place at the Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island. This automobile is regarded as the Italian sports car with "the heart of a Viper and the soul of an ALFA." Only nine Stradale TZ3s were built to commemorate the centenary of Carrozzeria Zagato in 2010.

The Azzurro California hued example that’s scheduled to debut at the 18th annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance is the last car in the special series. The Stradale TZ3 was assembled by Carrozzeria Zagato as an exercise in design. It uses the very old traditional ALFA-Romeo badge of the serpent as well as the wreath from the 1925 world grand prix championship.

The new Zagato TZ3 Stradale may have an elegant and luxurious bodywork built form carbonfiber but it’s highly powerful and features the 8.3 liter 600 hp V-10 of the new SRT Viper. Bill Warner, Chairman and Co-Founder of the Amelia Island Concours, described the Zagato Stradale TZ3 as a “gorgeous car” and that they are pleased that it made its debut at the Amelia.

He also said that the car is “perfect” for its field due to its underpinnings from the U.S. and its Italian design. Zagato refers to the Stradale TZ3 as "the first American ALFA in automotive history" that merges U.S. power with “Italian grace.” The TZ3 takes inspiration from the "bellazza necessaria" (beautiful necessity) motto. It comes with major Zagato design elements like the Kamm tail, "double bubble roof" and round taillights. Stradale’s owner said that the TZ3 is capable of accelerating from a standstill to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and that the Azzurro California blue color was picked out to match the Florida Sky.
