Documented history since new Ex-1963 Le Mans 24 Hours, 1964 Targa Florio, Monza 1000 Km etc… Fully restored in 2012 English registration papers Chassis number: AR10126*00197 sold without technical inspection T he car Alfa Romeo wanted at the beginning of the 1950s, the first version of the Giulietta was presented in 1954 at the Turin Show. Building on the little Alfa’s sales success, several versions of the model were developed and it enjoyed considerable success in competition, thanks in particular to the agreement between the Italian car maker and the coachbuilder Zagato, which led to the development of a version with more aerodynamic styling and a lightweight aluminium body. And so the Giulietta SZ (Sport Zagato) came about, of which scarcely more than 200 cars were built in all. This limited-series model was also produced in SZ Coda Tronca form, a version also known as the SZ2, of which only 30 were built. It is one of these, chassis no. 00197, which is presented here. This Alfa Romeo Giulietta SZ Coda Tronca was delivered new in Bologna and made its competition debut in the 1000 Kilometres of Paris in 1962, driven by Giampiero Biscaldi and Romolo Rossi and entered by the Scuderia Sant’Ambroeus. For its first race, it finished 16th overall and 4th in its class. It then took part in the 1963 Le Mans 24 Hours race, again with the Scuderia Sant’Ambroeus, but was disqualified after an engine oil refilling stop too early in the race. It had completed only 70 laps. In 1964, now owned by Count Girolamo Capra, it came home 21st in the Targa Florio. Also a member of the Scuderia Sant’Ambroeus, Capra competed the same year in the Nürburgring 1000 Km race, the Mugello GT Grand Prix and the Italian hillclimb championship. For its fourth season in competition, the Giulietta no. 00197 was entered in the final round of the world endurance championship and achieved an excellent 6th place overall in the 1965 1000 Kil
