If you had any hopes of getting into one of the Italianized versions of the Nürburgring-record setting Dodge Viper ACR, Zagato's Alfa Romeo Stradale TZ3, you may as well put them to rest as the last of the nine-hand built cars rolled off the brand's assembly line and will be presented by its new owner at the 18th annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance field on Sunday, March 10.
"The Zagato Stradale TZ3 is a gorgeous car and one we feel honored to have debut at the Amelia," stated Bill Warner, Chairman and Co-Founder of the Amelia Island Concours. "The car's American underpinnings and Italian design make it a perfect fit for our field."
Presented in 2010, Alfa Romeo Stradale TZ3 dresses the track-conquering Dodge Viper ACR's platform and 600HP 8.4-liter V10 engine coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox to a Zagato styled carbon fiber body featuring the Italian design house's signature Kamm-tail (K-tail) and double bubble roof treatment.
The ninth and last example of Zagato's Alfa Romeo Stradale TZ3 was bought by an unnamed Florida-based enthusiast. "The TZ3 is a very serious machine and will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds," says the proud owner. "I chose the Azzurro California blue color to match the Florida Sky, and I'm looking forward to seeing it on Amelia's field on Concours day."
