Alfa Romeo approaches the middle class after the Second World War, not the vehicles, but the buyer. One no longer manufactures elitist small series and simultaneously exploits the racing fame from before the war.
The result is a sports car with impressive drive. 73 kW (100 hp) are exceptionally for a naturally aspirated 1300cc even today, at that time a sensation, in addition different body structures, the work of numerous automotive body builders.
Here is the most impressive, a lightweight construction made from aluminum, which not only by the cut rear of Kamm (Figure 2) is said to have an excellent aerodynamics. Unfortunately, probably because of the price of more than DM 20,000 (21,500 Swiss francs) built just under fifty times only.
Elio Zagato is a clear unconventional type in the series of the northern Italian body artists. At the bottom of this page you can see the video of the TZ3 with the same rear end, built by Zagato for the hundredth birthday of Alfa Romeo 4 years ago.
Let me still shortly enthuse about the engine, here in its 'sharpest' series format. Although a somewhat delicate diva, but provided with all that was then regarded as an achievement, including aluminum block, DOHC and corresponding combustion chambers, two 40 Weber twin carburettors not to forget. 11/14
