1955 Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Berlinetta by Zagato
Out of all the Alfa Romeo 1900 vehicles that rolled out the factory gates, none is as desirable as the Zagato Berlinetta – SSZ in short. This stunning 1 of 39 SSz ever produced, specifically for racing, shows off Zagato’s aerodynamic efficiency and light weight body design, not to mention the most powerful version of Alfa Romeos 1900.
Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Berlinetta by Zagato is a truer example of art deco vibes and Italian class, not to mention seductive body lines. Looking as fine as it really is, with the engine compartment, trunk, paint, and bodywork smelling as we’d imagine it would have done as new, the car features Borrani wire wheels, with Borrani wheel nuts, restored Nardi steering wheel, Nardi shift linkage, the original spare wheel and jack and the popular Marchal driving lights.
The Plexiglas side and rear windows, usually scuffed and discolored, look brand new, but it’s all about the beating heart of the vehicle: 115 hp, 1,975 cc DOHC four, with twin Solex downdraft carburetors, mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Complemented by double wishbone front suspension with coil springs and hydraulic telescopic shock absorbers, and so on and so forth, this Alfa Romeo is one incredible piece of Zagato history.
