Zagato released the details of their new Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale, which is part of the company’s celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the Italian manufacturer.
The Zagato Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale is based on a Dodge Viper ACR mechanical chassis and features a carbon fiber body. Zagato says that the TZ3 Stradale could be the first American Alfa Romeo, since it’s powered by a USA engine. In terms of design, Zagato’s philosophy when it comes to the TZ3 Stradale, is ‘Bellezza necessaria’ which means basically, ‘beauty is necessary’.
It features the same 600HP 8.4-liter V10 engine as the standard Viper SRT-10 along with a 6-speed manual gearbox and a race-spec suspension.
The TZ3 Stradale is Zagato’s second and final tribute to the 100th anniversary of Alfa Romeo (1910-2010), which started in 2009 with the presentation of the 8C Competizione-based TZ3 Corsa that won the Villa D’Este Design Concept Award in 2010.
