Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ/TZ2
Created as a replacement for the gorgeous Giulietta SZ, the Zagato-styled TZ and TZ2 continued that car’s glorious looks and race-bred handling. The TZ nomenclature stands for ’Tubolare Zagato’, denoting the car’s tubular chassis. It was powered by Alfa’s twin-cam with up to 170bhp, and its suspension was a sophisticated all-independent set-up – in other words, here was a true thoroughbred. The TZ was the first Alfa Romeo with a glassfibre body (ten were built that way), and the TZ2 (pictured left) had even more dramatic styling. Incredibly desirable now.
