quote:When it was launched at the 1990 Geneva Motor Show the striking Alfa Romeo SZ caused quite a stir. Its angular and aggressive looks were at the same time unconventional and appealing; although they led to the Italian press labeling the SZ as il Mostro, or the Monster, they left little doubt that this was a performance machine.
Underneath composite body panels bonded to a steel frame – but with aluminum roof and carbonfiber rear spoiler – ground effect principles had been employed to further enhance the efficient aerodynamic shape which boasted a Cd of just 0.30. Inside, the two-seat cockpit was bereft of both electronic gadgetry and creature comforts, bar supportive and adjustable leather-trimmed Zagato seats with matching door trim.
The light alloy, fuel injected 2,959cc V6 engine produced 210 bhp at 6,300 rpm and 1,811 lb.ft of torque at 4,500 rpm. Mated to a five-speed, close ratio transaxle with limited slip differential this was sufficient to propel the SZ to 152 mph and 0-60 mph in 6.7 seconds, while braking was taken care of by large ventilated discs at each corner. But it was the roadholding and handling that really caught the imagination, leading the SZ to be considered one of the most exhilarating supercars available. So well was the SZ received by press and public alike that orders exceeded the 1,000 limited-production run before it had even begun.

Alfa Romeo GT Junior (ook wel GTJ genoemd)quote:
quote:In 1979 Alfa Romeo introduced their new flagship model, the Alfa 6. The four-door, three-box body used a similar style to the existing Alfetta model, although the considerably larger boot and bonnet made it a much more imposing vehicle. The drag coefficient was a respectable 0.41.The engine was an all new V6 with a capacity of 2492cc, which generated 158bhp at 5,600rpm using a total of six carburettors and a single, belt driven camshaft in each cylinder head. The drivetrain was conventional, with the engine and gearbox at the front and a limited slip differential at the rear. The suspension was similar to the Alfetta, with a de Dion system at the rear and independent front corners, but the gearbox was located in a more conventional position, aft of the engine (rather than at the rear like the Alfetta). A three speed automatic transmission from ZF was available as an option.
In 1983 the second series was launched. A minor (no changes to the metalwork), but noticeable facelift was conducted, with single square headlights replacing the twin round units, new bumpers, the addition plastic rubbing strips along the flanks, a new grille and new trim around the rear lights. Internally minor detail and trim changes were executed, whilst mechanically the engine received Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection to replace the six carburettors, the power remaining at 158bhp.
For tax reasons, a 1997cc version (135bhp, still with carburettors) of the 2.5 V6 engine was introduced, and at the same time a 2494cc 5-cylinder (105bhp) turbodiesel engine (by VM) was also offered.

Die Tipo 33 is echt mooi, die SZ is een regelrecht gedrocht .
Hier in Eindhoven kom ik em regelmatig tegen.
