Zagato Previews new Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa ahead of Villa d'Este
Alfa Romeo and Zagato have a long history of collaboration between them. 90 years in fact, out of Alfa's 100-year history. So to mark the automaker's centenary, the famous design house – which has recently undertaken work for Ferrari, Bentley and Spyker, to name just a few – is preparing to unveil a new vehicle at the upcoming Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
Following an earlier report forecasting the creation of the vehicle, Zagato has now released a handful of details and the solitary overhead shot you see above. Called the TZ3 Corsa, it follows in the footsteps of the original TZ and TZ2 racers. Built upon a carbon fiber frame with lightweight aluminum body panels that evidently bear much in common with the flagship Alfa 8C Competizione on which it is based, the TZ3 Corsa has been commissioned by an unspecified gentleman racer in Germany, who apparently intends on campaigning the one-of-a-kind creation in actual motorsport competition. Stay tuned as the prestigious open-air auto show on the shores of Italy's Lake Como approaches at the end of the month.
