Footnotes

  • This SZ is an early production car, being number '131' of the 1,036 built between 1989 and 1991 (38 were prototypes). According to the records held at the Alfa Romeo Museum near Milan, this SZ was manufactured on 28th September 1990 and sold new in Liege, Belgium, on 14th May 1992. Believed to have been imported into the UK in late 1997, the car was first registered here in January 1998 and in July of that same year was acquired by its previous owner, who retained it for the following 14 years.

    'J162 WRX' has covered a minimal mileage in its 20 years on the road, with the odometer showing just 26,480 kilometres (approximately 16,440 miles), a reading substantiated by the previous MoT certificates and comprehensive maintenance invoices on file. As one would expect for such a low mileage vehicle, it is in extremely good condition with none of the common SZ issues present. In the latter respect it is worthwhile noting that it has a very good dashboard top, a corrosion-free roof panel and C-pillars, almost unmarked lacquer on the rear spoiler, an immaculate interior, and correctly functioning raising and lowering suspension. As a further indication to this car's superior originality, it is equipped with a replacement set of the now extremely rare and unavailable, correct factory fitment Pirelli P-Zero tyres. The car retains its original leather handbook folder containing the service book (showing both the supplying dealer and the first owner as Soliar Cy S.A. of Liege) plus a handbook (in French) and a dealership directory. A SuperChip performance ECU chip was fitted to the car in March 1999, although the original is included in the history file.

    The comprehensive history folder also contains Belgian registration papers, numerous invoices from well-known Alfa Romeo specialists, every MoT certificate since the car was registered in the UK, a Swansea V5 document and current MoT. Recent works include the refurbishment of the split-rim alloy wheels (at a cost of £860), a cam belt change and painting of the front bumper to remove stone chips. Copies of the invoices are in the file.
