Alfa Romeo Zagato
Alfa Romeo continued the sporting specials of the Giulietta with the Giulia, starting by simply giving some existing models the Giulia 1570cc engine and re-badging them. The Alfa Romeo Tubolare Zagato of 1963 was a pure racing GT car and won its first outing in 1963. Less aggressive was the Junior Zagato of 1969 which was designed more for customers than competitors. In fact the Alfa Romeo Giulia Junior Zagato was too heavy to be as fast as it looked on a 1300 engine, and too pricey for many to buy; the later and longer Junior 1600 Z addressed some of those issues.

Alfa Romeo Junior 1600Z. Ercole Spada's design for the Junior Z was controversial but judged as one of his best. The plexiglass front had a heart-shaped opening for cooling and slots to the side of this for the carburrettor.
Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ
Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ. Carlo Chiti had left Ferrari and engineered the Tubolare Zagato using Giulia components and a tubular steel chassis. Ercole Spada of Zagato designed the Kamm tail bodywork. Designed as a racer it won its first outing at Monza in 1963 as a prototype and was fully homologated for the GT category in 1964. 12 TZ2 cars were made in 1965 with new bodywork.

Alfa Romeo Junior 1600Z. The 1969 Turin Salon saw the launch of the Junior Zagato built on an Alfa Romeo Giulia Junior platform by Carrozzeria Zagato. In 1972 this design was upgraded, now built on the longer Giulia chassis and given the 1570cc engine as the Junior 1600 Z.
