Built at Carlo Chiti’s Autodelta, the TZ2 benefited from the engineer’s experience as well as a strong relationship with Alfa Romeo and its president Giuseppi Luraghi. Encouraged by the success of the TZ1 (also built by Autodelta), Alfa Romeo purchased the firm to take over its competition wing.
The newly reformed Autodelta became responsible for all of Alfa Romeo’s race development and team management. One of their first jobs was to upgrade the TZ1, a lightweight, spaceframe race car, into an even lighter, lower and more powerful machine for factory racing. The team at Autodelta took the TZ1 and transformed it into what many have called a ‘mini Ferrari GTO’.
