THE ALFA ROMEO 1600 JUNIOR ZAGATO

Alfa Romeo produced just 402 Zagato Coachbuilt examples of the 1600 Junior Z between 1972 and 1975, of which just 121 cars are known to exist in the Zagato Register, 12 of which are known to be in the United States. As with its predecessor the Giulietta SZ, Zagato chose to base its new coupe on an Alfa Spider chassis rather than a GT chassis to take advantage of its lighter weight, shorter wheelbase and shorter front and rear overhangs. Zagato created a low drag aerodynamic fastback coupe featuring a very low frontal area, low roofline and fastback profile. As with its predecessor the Giulietta SZ, weight was minimized with several characteristic Zagato features such as an aluminum hood, ultra-lightweight bumpers, unique lightweight Zagato seats and a special lightweight dashboard devoid of a glove box door. The specially designated 1600 high performance "S" engines for the Junior Z were fitted with double twin choke Weber Carburetors and featured a unique Zagato "Ram Air" induction system fed by eight openings in the front clear headlight cover. The car's high performance mechanical specification and lightweight construction prohibited Alfa Romeo from originally offering the car in the United States. With bespoke Zagato features throughout including an electrically elevating rear hatch for low drag flow through ventilation and construction taking place at both Alfa Romeo and the Zagato coachworks, the Junior Z proved very expensive to produce resulting in just 402 examples being produced as compared to 3,917 Alfa Romeo Montreals.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This spectacular "time capsule" 1600 Junior Z which has covered just over 56,450 km, or about 35,000 miles, from new. It features its original high performance 1600 "S" Ram Air engine, original seats, door panels and interior trim, and even its original muffler and undercoating! It is supplied complete with jack, tools and manual.

The car was comprehensively serviced by marque specialists in June 2015. On the road its short wheelbase, light weight, low drag and high performance mechanical specification provide a uniquely sporting experience. This Junior Z's dramatic shape, fantastic original condition and ultra-rarity make this handmade coachbuilt Zagato Alfa Romeo a fine addition to any collection.
