New RED color The Alfa Romeo Zagato TZ4 coming

A little less than a year ago, famed Italian coachbuilder Zagato celebrated Alfa Romeo’s centenary with the reveal of the TZ3 Corsa at the Villa D'Este Concours. Based on the hardware of the Alfa Romeo 8c Competizione, the TZ3 Corsa paid homage to its TZ predecessors. It was built as a one-off for a wealthy German collector named Martin Kapp.

In December of the same year, Zagato sent out a holiday card featuring the older TZ1 and TZ2 alongside the latest TZ3 and one more unnamed fourth model wrapped in a bow, hinting at a new TZ4. Fast forward to today, and German car magazine Autobild is reporting that the Italian coachbuilder is indeed planning a fourth TZ model, which could carry the TZ4 Stradale nameplate.
Alfa Romeo have made some of the most beautiful cars on the planet. And none more beautiful than those designed and built in collaboration with Zagato. We wouldn’t go as far as the Top Gear boys and claim you can’t be a Petrolhead if you haven’t owned an Alfa, but we would say you can’t be a Petrolhead if you’ve never lusted after one.
So we can be pretty sure that you’ll find Zagato’s Christmas card this year (pictured above) worthy of a Christmas drool, featuring as it does a trio of Alfa Romeo Zagatos – plus one. There’s the original Alfa Romeo Giulia-based TZ from the early ’60s and its updated version, the Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2.
