History

Legendary coachbuilder Zagato created a special version of the Giulietta for use in competition. The result was dubbed the Sprint Zagato, commonly referred to as the 'SZ'. This creation was built atop of the shorter Giulietta chassis and given the mechanical prowess of the Sprint Veloce. The aluminum body panels were hand formed at Zagato's workshop using designs by Franco Scaglione of the Bertone Studio. The aluminum bodies were placed on the space-frame chassis and given weight-saving perspex side windows. The interior was void of non-essential items resulting in a very lightweight vehicle.

The public was given an opportunity to view the SZ in all its glory at the 1960 Geneva Motorshow. There were a total of 200 examples created with the final 30 receiving a longer tail called the 'Coda Tronca.' This, along with its shortened body, was done in hopes of slicing through the air in a more efficient fashion. Other improvements included disc brakes in the front, a lower roof, cut-off Kamm tail and a front air intake that had been narrowed.
