The SVZ featured on the cover of the Giulietta Veloce magazine, Summer 97 issue. Erroneously mentioned as SZ.

An update on this incredible Alfa's history. We had discussed earlier how the legendary race car driver Dr. Cesare Rossi had raced this car often, and is seen in many pictures with the car on track. On contacting his family members, they shared their fond memories of this fast, bright red Alfa which was in fact not just raced but even owned by Dr. Rossi. The car along with his other Alfa was parked in their house basement, and every year they had to be hurriedly moved out before the monsoons came, as the basement flooded every year. They have promised to share photographs from their family albums, whenever they dig them up.

Also sharing this interesting piece giving us a short profile of Dr. Rossi and his India connections. He must have had the most amazing stories to share!

Wow this is truly a one of its kind build not just on Team-BHP but probably in the country. That car is a piece of history, it was so ahead of its time in terms of design! Watching this space intently for updates!
