I hadn't thought about this car in years, then, while trawling autotrader for 156s, I found this.

1991 Alfa Romeo SZ

The SZ was one of those cars I read about as a kid, then promptly put on the mental shelf reserved for things that are probably mythical, like unicorns, or Scarlett Johansson. It was too rare and weird to ever turn up in New Zealand, so didn't warrant much more thought. I thought it looked amazing then, and despite looking massively 90s, I think it holds up. Won't be buying one anytime soon though. Alfa V6, Zagato styling, those wheels, dat waisteline! I wouldn't call it a pretty car, but maybe handsome?
