Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa with Andrea Zagato – click above for high-res image gallery

The caviar and concours-loving world was rocked this past Saturday night when Zagato dropped its Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa bomb. Seriously y'all, this sucker's so stunning that we don't even mind the childish graphics. In fact, our only gripe is that we weren't in attendance at the this weekend's 2010 Villa D'Este Concours so we could check out the tube-framed, almost Kamm-tailed TZ3 ourselves. Meaning we have no real gripes to speak of.

Luckily, an Autoblog reader named Graziano Mancini was there, took some shots, and he was good enough to send them on share with you. We like the live pictures even better than the stock studio shots. The TZ3 has that classic, special early 1960s Euro-racer charm and grace that is simply lacking from modern cars. Long story short, the car's fabulous. But don't take our word for it – the Zagato-penned Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa won the Villa D'Este's concept class. Very well done. Also, we'd be remiss if we didn't offer Andrea Zagato (above) a very happy 50th birthday today. Check out Mancini's full slate of shots in the gallery below.

      Beautiful Alfa! I'm always amazed that they are still able to make that central "Alfa triangle" grill work.

      I love the "childish graphics".

      I get it... but I would love to see this car unadorned with the graphics. Looks like distracting graffiti that interrupts appreciation of the car's lines IMO.

      It's like a rebirth of the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe that raced at Le Mans in the '60's!

      I thought the 8C was perfect until I saw this.
        • 4 Years Ago
        The 8c reminds me of the Mazda RX-7 specially the side view. Just wondering if both are related.

      Amazing! I'd love to hear the song this sweet bird makes.

      If this was a G.M. product..............LOL, it would have chrome rims!
        • 4 Years Ago
        if this was a GM product we could actually aford to buy one...

      I just can't get over this car. One observation though: it's a shooting brake, but I can't seem to make out any sort of access to the boot other than via the passenger compartment. While I'm okay with this, it does strike me as odd. I guess it's in that gray area between a shooting brake and a coupe.

      I want this car as DLC in Forza 3

      It's almost as if Alfa Romeo traveled back in time and asked a ten-year-old me to design a car for them
      . . . and then erased all memories of it by hitting me on the head with a baseball bat.

      Holy smokes...

      Only 2 problems with it:

      - I can't have one (or even hope to afford one, if it made serial production).
      - Even if I could have one, the mandatory California front license would ruin the front end.

        for the second problem: move to Michigan?
