This Zagato-Styled Giulietta SZ Is The Ultimate ’60s Alfa Romeo GT Car

The story of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta SZ began in 1956, when noted Italian coachbuilder, Elio Zagato took possession of a wrecked Giulietta Sprint Veloce. The Milanese craftsman proceeded to produce new aluminum speedster-style bodywork, the results of which lead local Giulietta SV owners to request their own Zagato body kits. Eventually, the Zagato-spec caught the attention of the Turin marque, which commissioned Elio to produce a limited run of SZ (AKA “Sprint Zagato”) versions of the Giulietta.

With a short wheelbase, high-end running gear, and a high-performance, all-alloy, 1.8L, double overhead cam, inline-four Type AR00120 engine, the Giulietta SZ was quite the performer, with an aerodynamic and lightweight design that enabled it to go toe-to-toe with 1960s cars with markedly more displacement. In total, only 200 units were produced before Alfa pulled the plug, making remaining specimens incredibly elite and highly sought-after. Known for selling off some of the most expensive cars in history, Gooding & Company is currently offering a pristine 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Zagato with an asking price of $495,000. This particular 1960 specimen was purchased new in Italy by Rinaldo Parmigiani, an Italian racer who regularly competed in the Mille Miglia and Mugello throughout the ‘50s and ‘60s.

Purchase: $495,000
