Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale
BY NORIHIKO HARADA
FOR ZAGATO
A Supercar which is both sporty in the extreme and sinuous and elegant to look at, the Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale manages to make an icon out of a car first produced over 50 years ago (the Alfa Romeo TZ). In a period when the automobile sector has reached a phase of relative maturity, design seems to have become the most important, if not the only, distinguishing characteristic.
The unavoidable standardization of component production and the tendency on the part of the major car manufacturers to share investment and the carry-over of mechanical and technical components effectively guarantee that in certain if not many cases, design is the only element that differentiates a model or a brand from another. In 2010, to celebrate the centenary of the Alfa Romeo brand and to coincide with the FIAT group entering into partnership with Chrysler, Zagato created a tribute to this partnership with the Alfa Romeo TZ3 project. The first phase was the presentation of the Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa; the second phase represented the logical development on the first with the delivery of the first of only nine examples of the Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale, created with the use of the Viper mechanical chassis, Viper being a brand belonging to the Chrysler Group. The Viper shares certain technical details with the Alfa Romeo TZ and TZ2: mechanical chassis, mid-engined, set-back cabin, short rear section, double-bubble roof, side exhausts. In this sense, the Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale has become a vintage car.
