The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio TZ Coupe could arrive in 2019 to celebrate the centenary of the coachbuilder Italian. It is expected that the model comes in a limited series of a few units.
Para celebrate his centenary, which will take place in 2019, Carrozzeria Zagato would be preparing a special model and continuing with its tradition, will be a coupe that will be based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.
The confirmation came through a british publication dedicated to the cars of Italian origin, called Auto Italia, then an interview with Andrea Zagato. The new model will be referred to as Zagato TZ and it will be a sort of spiritual heir of the legendary Alfa Romeo TZ1 and TZ2 of the 1960s.
TZ (Tubular Zagato) were cars intended to be used within a circuit, which were constructed on a tubular frame in steel and used the mechanics of the Giulia, in addition to a body well light, with a weight that did not exceed 700 kilograms.
it Was not until 2010 to meet the heir of the “TZ”, although in that occasion, the basis chosen was the Dodge Viper, which even had a limited edition of a series of six specimens that could be registered and used on the public road, and that led to the appellation TZ3.
Still there is not much information about this as possible Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio TZ Coupe, but the first reports suggest that the model will take the frame and the mechanics of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, including the bi-turbo engine of origin Ferrari, a block V6 engine that develops 510 HP of power, according to the strategy implemented by the coachbuilder Italian in the last few years.
Zagato saves a long tradition of developing vehicles “off the charts”, based on models of production that many times are manufactured in a completely handmade in the limited series of a few units.
of course, in some cases, these models are intended to be displayed at any international exhibition, and that for various reasons never come to be transformed into production models, such as has occurred with the fabulous Fiat 500 Coupé of the year 2011.
