Hi!
For a few years I am working on chassis registers of some limited Alfa Romeo production cars. I collect magazines and books and with help of the www (and Alfabb of course) I have listed some thousand events and photos regarding the Giulietta SVA (Alleggerita), SVZ, SZ, Giulia TI Super, TZ, GTA, GTAJ, GTAm and the Tipo 33. I will try now to write down something about the SVZ but of course it will never be complete. As you see there are many open questions left, not all the cars can be confirmed and I hope I did not make too many mistakes. Please feel free to add information, tell me what is wrong or simply enjoy the photos (I hope there are no copyrights with them, most of them came from the www or from the Alfa Romeo archives). And … sorry for my bad english
Martin
So let's begin

Svz #01944

SVZ #01944 was the first SVZ. It was one of the first SVAlleggeritas ever sold and was destroyed only a few days later in the 1956 Mille Miglia. During the summer of 1956 it was rebodied by Zagato for the Leto di Priolo brothers. Massimo Leto di Priolo raced it first in the 1956 Coppa Intereuropa at Monza on the Formula One weekend, and took a class win (GT1.3). The Leto di Priolo brothers raced it until the end of 1957 and sold it to Giorgio Ubezzi from Torino (father of Alfabb-member mbuezzi). After a few races he repainted the car rosso and went on to Le Mans. From then on there is no information. In 1960 he went again to Le Mans with a SVZ, possibly the same car but with the later 1958 SVZ bodywork and new registration plates. No information since

Svz #02308

SVA #02308 was the first 1958 type SVZ. Sergio “Pegaso” Bettoja raced it every weekend in early 1958 but possibly destroyed it in the Targa Florio. Next event he raced a SVZ was the 1959 Targa Florio, but there is no photo of the car since it did not finish the race. In 1960 he did some races but it is difficult to identify a car since the sources does not specify any type. Some times it is written SVZ, other time SS (must be his #0029) or even SZ (#0002?).

Svm #04718

#04718 was rebodied by Zagato in 1959, possibly for Carlo Antonio Mognaschi, Genova (I). Mognaschi raced it in 1959/1960 and probably sold it to Virgilio Conrero, Torino (I), in whose Squadra Conrero Tony Mognaschi was team member. It is said to have run the 1960 Le Mans trails but there is no confirmation. Michelotti rebodied this SVZ #04718 to SVM #04718 in 1961. Conrero took it to various events with the drivers Francesco De Leonibus and Carlo Peroglio. In 1963 it was raced by Francesco Susinno of Scuderia Etna/Sicilia (I). The next photo came from 1984 when it was painted rosso. In 2004 it was for sale in Italy and the new owner took the now yellow car to Oldtimergarage Vetter (CH) for restoration. Featured in various classic car magazines
