1989-1994 ALFA ROMEO SZ/RZ specifications


First conceived as a design study in 1987, the Sprint Zagato caused such a sensation that, in 1989, Alfa launched a production version at the Geneva Motor Show. Based on a heavily modified 75, the SZ had the performance (and sound) to back up its sporty yet unconventional looks. Its ability to hang on in bends really made the SZ special – it could generate 1.1g of cornering force. The RZ (Roadster Zagato) was produced from 1992 until the end of 1993. Only 284 were made, making it highly sought after – and more expensive than the SZ.
