Pair of Alfa Romeo Zagato Classics Heading to Villa d'Este Auction

The Zagato is, for Alfa Romeo fans at least, the equivalent of a 250 GTO for the Ferrari faithful. The car is rich with automotive history, as it scored a remarkable 1-2-3-4 class finish upon its race debut at Monza in 1963, complimented the same year by class wins at Sebring, Le Mans and the Nurburgring, plus a win at next year’s Alpine Rally.

One of only 112 examples ever made, this particular model (chassis #750006) was prepared by Autodelta (the same Alfa tuner still operating in the UK) and fully restored to its original 1964 Le Mans condition, after it was owned by just one family for 23 years.

“In July 2010, the TZ was entered into the prestigious Le Mans Classic and also took to the show field at the Le Mans Heritage Club Concours, where it was awarded first in class. On 4th and 5th September, the TZ was entered in the Paleis Het Loo Concours d'Elegance, where it was awarded second in its class. Most recently, 750006 was exhibited at Auto Moto Italia in Houten, Holland in October 2010, followed by a December 2010 appearance at the Essen Motor Show in Germany,” states the RM Auctions press release.

Also bodied by Zagato, this 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulietta SZ "Coda Tronca" (chassis #0184) is one of only 30 such examples made, out of 200 total SZs.

Both cars come with a DOHC four-cylinder engine - a 1.6-liter in the TZ and a 1.3-liter for the Coda Tronca. They heading for the auction block at the forthcoming RM auction Villa d'Este, where the TZ is expected to fetch €475,000-€575,000 ($690,000-835,000) and the Coda Tronca €260,000-€300,000 ($377,000-435,000).

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
