That car has been listed and shown for sale as a "Giulia 1600GT prototype coupe", but I dont know anything more about it. Perhaps some of the other guys have some more info about it. I think its in the UK for sale at the moment.

Wasn't there a guy at Autodelta that built his version of a better? tz using a TZ2 frame?

Autodelta was founded by Chiti and a partner, Ludovico Chizzola. He didn't want to move from Udine to Milan when Alfa called for that, and remained at his location. That was the time when the TZ was turned into TZ2. Chizzola seemingly built his own view of what should be and evolved TZ, building it smaller and lighter for better agility. This is presented as the result of his effort.

Guess he didn't have a grasp of aerodynamics.

What a great find. I love it, in an ugly Zagato kind of way. I would love to lear more about this particular car. The front end is similat to an ISO, the rear is a bit like a Cheetah. It would make great reading to lear more.

Zagato was by no way involved in this car.
The topic already got its dedicated thread here
And, yes, it's ugly...

Thanks, I would have searched for it but didn't really know what to search for. It is sort of ugly and definitely has the look of a special about it.

It looks like a cross between a Corvette Stingray and a Sixties TVR Griffith. I'll bet it has a great personality.
