Pictures of my encounter with Dr. Andrea Zagato at a Car Design Seminar in The Netherlands.
At the 22 of November 2000 I had the opportunity to meet Dr. Andrea Zagato during a Car Design
Seminar at the Technical University in Delft, The Netherlands.
It was only possible for me to
ask him a few questions... so.... I now know for sure that there are 1036 SZ's produced and
278 RZ's and not as in the most books etc. mentioned 998 SZ's and 241 or 350 RZ's.
Also I asked him what the name SZ now really means....."Sprint Zagato" or "Sport Zagato".
About this I had several discussions on the internet.....
Explanation from Dr. Zagato: Sprint is a term often used in Alfa Romeo's history.....
and the term Sport is more used by Lancia. So because of that they decided to call the ES-30
SPRINT and not SPORT Zagato.

We met eachother later again,..in 2004 at the "Spa-Italia" event and in 2009 at the Zagato company together with Sig. U. Pietra. ( Castagna Vittoria )
