Zagato's new SZ (Sprint Zagato). or ES30 (Experimental Sportscar
3. 0 litre) was nicknamed 'Il Mostro' (The Monster). From its first
sketch to its unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1989. br/>only took 19 months. Designed by Walter de Silva. who was later to
design Alfa Romeo's very successful 156. the SZ was based upon the
Alfa Romeo 75 3. 0 litre chassis. Walter worked in conjunction with
Zagato and came up with this aggressive and brutal design. br/>resulting in the 'Il Mostro' as offered today.

The structure is clothed with a composite body with an aluminium
roof section resulting in a lightweight but strong design. The
prototype spent many hours in Fiat's wind tunnel. and the engineers
did an incredible job getting the front profile design's drag
factor down to 0. 30 while still managing to create down force;
especially challenging as the car is shaped like an aircraft wing.
The SZ has few driver aids. not even ABS. which results into a real
driver's car. At speed the car settles on the road and you can
easily cross continents whilst keeping the occupants in comfort.
The SZ has an incredible cornering ability that makes it really
special. a factor assisted by its near 50-50 weight distribution
over both axles.

We are delighted to offer car number 090 which has an
interesting history. The original engine was removed and a similar
unit from a 3. 0 litre. 164 installed and supercharged. In this
format. the SZ was featured in the popular Auto Italia magazine. br/>however; the supercharger has now been removed but is available
with the car if a new owner wishes to re-instate it. In recent
times. the SZ has been under the care of Alex Jupe of Alex Jupe
Motorsport. one of the leading specialists in the Alfa Romeo
Alfetta and 75 based models. Under Alex's care. the SZ has had a
Squadra chip installed. gaining a further 10 to 15bhp and fresh
coolant and plugs. The front brakes have been uprated to Brembo
four-pot calipers with 320mm discs attached to aluminium hubs that
assist heat transfer. The alloy wheels. which commonly suffer from
corrosion issues. have been replaced with one of the last set of
genuine items and are still as new. The SZ was only offered in
lefthand drive with red coachwork and tan leather interior. The
coachwork is striking in red but does suffer from its common malady
of some very minor micro blistering on the bonnet but otherwise is
very good. To the interior. the smell of the leather is immediately
apparent with the trim all in good order. The SZ comes with its
indoor silk cover and will arrive at the sale with its SZ number
plate and an MoT test certificate valid until February 2016.

With a low estimate. this surely represents an opportunity to
own one of Alfa Romeo and Zagato's most sensational motor cars.
