Like the original Alfa Romeo TZs of yore, the modern-day TZ3 Corsa is built to hit apexes with vigor. Molded from a carbon-fiber chassis, tubular frame, and lightweight aluminum body, the TZ3 weighs in at 1900 pounds. Traditional Alfa styling cues, including the low-slung nose and cutoff tail, mimic the venerable TZ1 and TZ2 racecars. And like the original racers, Zagato designed the TZ3 Corsa as an actual race vehicle, giving it Ohlins suspension, a 6-speed sequential transmission, and a 4.2-liter, dry-sump, 414-horsepower V-8. These features help propel the retro-cool coupe from 0 to 62 mph in under 3.5 seconds and attain a top speed over 186 mph.
Commissioned by German Alfa Romeo collector Martin Kapp, the TZ3 Corsa was designed to honor Alfa’s 100th birthday and motorsport heritage. If you have a special appreciation for all things Alfa, be sure to check out the photos.
