Alfa-Romeo to revive Zagato SZ?

Alfa Romeo is planning to launch a series of dramatic new concept cars – one each year over the next five years – and Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato has confirmed that the company is already “working on potential one-off and few-off” projects. That means we can expect a mix of pure show cars and limited-edition production models, including collaborations with existing Italian design houses like Pininfarina, with the first one likely to be by Zagato.

The prospect of a new Zagato Alfa Romeo concept car was hinted at in Zagato’s corporate Christmas card (above), showing artwork of cherubs surrounding what is clearly an Alfa Romeo coupe. Its lines suggest that Zagato may be designing a 21st century SZ, inspired by the legendary 1989 car that saw limited production (below). The new Zagato Alfa concept car is set to be revealed in the summer of 2022.

Imparato has referenced the Alfa Romeo Duetto and 33 Stradale as reference points for future sports car designs, and says he also wants a new Alfa Spider to reach production. “We have so many ideas,” he said. “If you visit the [Alfa Romeo] museum, in five minutes you understand the potential of what we have in mind… I have to support the storytelling of Alfa Romeo in the future. It’s not for tomorrow, but I would love to have a Duetto one day.”
