Again at Naples GT 1300cc (and below) race on May 14th, 1960 with this wonderful photo. #8 is Kim and SZ 00001 1st, #10 is Sepe with SZ 00002 2nd, note that both SZ have the smaller side air intake with only 2 horizontal bars. #12 is Riolo the previous week Targa Florio 1300cc class winner with SS muso basso 00045 3rd, #20 is Mandato with SVZ 04249 dnf, and #4 which we don't see the number but is behind & right of #20 is Natella with the real SVZ 04458 recogniseable by her double bubble roof, 4th.

Interesting. If the car is legit, though, I'm surprised the auction isn't being handled by an organization like Bonhams.
BAT gets you international coverage as well. Much cheaper buyer's premium and no seller's premium to speak of. BAT's net last year surpassed all of the other auction houses.

The Zagatos reportedly favored the color grey.
Wonderful photo of the participants at Naples. Thanks!
SZ 0001 and another SZ (0002?) failed to finish the Targa Floria a week earlier. Why was that?

If only…I like to think that my Alfas have a little of that heritage baked in somewhere. I’d pay a nice sum to be able to drive it, fast but carefully, for a couple of hours.

Always thought these were sort of ugly ducklings compared to something like a GTA/GTam. But I love it from a technical and historic perspective. Certainly way out of my league.

The oversized tires are negatively accentuated by the car's diminutive proportions. These cars transcend artistry. I have no idea why this one sounds like a rattle trap on the cobbles .. It shouldn't let out a peep or squeak. It is the most solid platform Alfa ( er Zagato) ever made... fragile yet solid. .

Uncle, it remains a small car (diemensions) with a 1300 cm3...

I imagine that it will be sold at a much higher price, but at the same level, we will still have a classic Italian V12. not signed Zagato, but finally...

my 1,5 cents :)

It's difficult to mix values of mouse power with Ferraris and justify them.. Look at what the diminutive Porsche Speeders bring and they were more plentiful ....

For any SZ and especially this one, I don’t think the engine displacement has anuthing to do with its value.
