Description

Sometimes certain cars continue to haunt you. And in the case of this Alfa Romeo SZ we are of course very happy with that. We have had the pleasure of selling this SZ before in fact to the owner who, after having fully enjoyed it for 7 years, has asked us to find a new enthusiast for it. And we can not wait to do that, because the SZ is high on our list of rare, low production numbers, easy to drive, relatively affordable, easy to maintain and very real driver’s cars.

On June 23, 1992, the beautiful SZ with production number 972 (from 1990 to 1993 only 1036 units were built) was delivered in the Netherlands. In total, only 25 copies are allocated to the Netherlands. The first owner was a very real Alfiste because she traded in her other SZ. One lady is busy with handbags and shoes, and the other with Alfa’s. Our preference may be clear …

We sold the car to the current owner on 30 June 2012, and among the documents we came across was the advertisement too, showing the following text: “this is a stable in value and a pur sang sportscar. It speaks for itself that such a real car like this one, comes with all the factory-supplied booklets and the tailor-made cover ” And the same text still applies, on the understanding that we must admit that the car has actually become even more beautiful since then. “Why more beautiful?” we hear you think. Well, because of this: the owner is a real fan of the Milanese brand and knew that he had bought something special. And you have to take care for something special like an SZ. And the owner took that very literally. All maintenance was done professionally and carefully by a specialist and of course all invoices are present. The exhaust system had to be replaced in 2014 and a tailor-made stainless steel exhaust with a double end pipe was installed. Something that should have been delivered from the factory instead of a single exhaust pipe that does not do justice to the potential of the 222 bhp 3.0 V6 engine. The fitting of a Squadra chip increased the power from 210 till now 222 bhp.

It is known that the fiberglass body of a SZ is not really tight and and the paintwork could be better too. And that also bothered the owner. And since there are very good professionals in the Netherlands who know how such a specialist job should be brought to a perfect end, the car was provided with a new paint in July 2014. With such a stunningly beautiful result that the SZ is a lot more beautiful than when it left the factory. It goes without saying that the extensive file also reported on this with photos and invoices. The paintwork is still in new condition and that also applies to the beautiful cream-colored leather interior. There is really no trace of use. Fantastic to see.

The current mileage is only 55.902 km. and with our four decades of Alfa Romeo we can assure you that this is an SZ of the highest quality. An SZ for an enthusiast who wants to take care of his beautiful property with passion and who wants to optimally enjoy an iconic and very special Alfa Romeo.
