The Alfa Romeo TZ2: A Rare Gem of Italian Racing History

The Alfa Romeo TZ2 is a racing car produced by Alfa Romeo from 1964 to 1967. It was powered by an Autodelta-prepared twin plug, DOHC straight-4 engine with dry sump lubrication that produced about 170 bhp (127 kW) at 7000 rpm. The car's peak speed with this engine was 245 km/h (152 mph).

Only 12 of the TZ2's lighter, more streamlined variants of the Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ were produced when it was debuted in 1964. There is a model of each of the two versions on display at the Arese Alfa Romeo Museum.

An Autodelta-prepared twin plug, dry sump lubrication DOHC straight-4 engine with an output of roughly 170 bhp (127 kW) at 7000 rpm was installed in the Alfa Romeo TZ2.

A four-cylinder, naturally aspirated engine with a double overhead camshaft can generate a maximum torque of Nm (- lb.ft) at 7500 rpm and 172 PS (170 bhp - 127 kW) at that same speed.

With a 2-door coupé body shape, Zagato created the Alfa Romeo TZ2. Instead, then being a three-part window like in TZ, the rear window is now a single element. Numerous races, such as the Targa Florio, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the Nürburgring, included the Alfa Romeo TZ2.
