Exactly. This is a rare bird. Alfa only built 1036 examples during the 1989-’91 production run and didn’t send any stateside. They’d leave our market, in fact, only a few years later. 

Zagato handled the styling, while a 3.0-liter V6 sends power to the rear axle. Manual transmission? Of course. 

This 1991 Alfa Romeo SZ spent time in Japan and received a few modifications, including coil-over shocks, Wilwood brakes and 17-inch wheels. 

This one will cross the block during RM Sotheby’s upcoming Scottsdale sale. Find more details here.

One advantage of going to the Carlisle Import show every year - if a car is weird, obscure, but not horrifically expensive, you'll probably see one there.

This is precisely the sort of bullE36 M3 I would drive if I had stupid amounts of money.

I drooled in and around the one at the Lane Museum earlier this year. So cool in person.

I saw this thread and thought great - a friend used to race one with me in my MGA.

Then I opened it and realized that we weren't  talking classics.

He ran this:

(He also ran this, but I think that he sold this one and paid off his mortgage!)
