The Alfa Romeo RZ Is One of the Strangest 1990s Sports Cars

It actually is very usual in European convertibles from 90's and 00's to be turned off in order to operate the roof. It is a safety feature for not messing with the roof when you are driving. First thing I would try!

Doug again being full of shit. This car was not designed to "replace" the Spider, and that's why it looks nothing like it. It was designed to resemble the Giulietta Sprint Zagato, although it failed miserably at that...

The design is unique to be sure, but I wouldn't call it ugly by any means. I think it is one of the best, most different looking and futuristic car designs of its era. Also giving performance such a low score should be considered a criminal offence. We are talking about the V6 Busso here!

Clearly Doug you have no idea what the Alfa SZ and RZ represent amoungst Alfisti worldwide. These two models are the height of what could be designed by an iconic design house like Carrozzeria Zagato in the eighties. These cars are classics in their own right with no equal, being hand assembled not of steel but a composite of materials. There are only a handful of these cars in South Africa with resale values through the roof. Yes I agree that the design is unconventional, but that is the alure of these models, they dont look like any of the Alfa's before or after. I was not impressed by the way you presented the Spider, especially as there were roughly only 250 units produced. You should have praised the SZ for its uniqueness and beautiful design/ Peter Horne-Team Principal, Alfa Dynamics Squadra Corse, Cape Town, South Africa.

Doug says the SZ is even worse looking and not an attractive car. Look at the 1994 VW Corrado, most small sport coupes were boxy and odd looking.That's a lot coming from a guy that wears two t-shirts, khaki shorts and hiking shoes in every one of his videos.

The reason for the looks, and i believe also the reason why Alfa did the design instead of Zagato, is because they wanted this car to be the first to be designed digitally with CAD software instead of the good old analog way of drawing on paper. But the computational power of CAD software in the 90's wasn't really a whole lot, so the best they could do is this boxy look. Also why bother commissioning Zagato with the task of doing digital design when they could barely scrape by economically, and you have the chance to do it in-house, with your own designers? That is why Alfa ended up designing this car instead of Zagato.

Very polarizing car- unfortunately Doug missed the main point about this car. Weird Italian design, certainly… quirky car- absolutely….not very powerful, positively… poor fit of the body panels: you can bet on that (like most limited series cars of the 90’s), strange features: but of course….but the handling in corners is just plain awesome. Just check out some of the skid pad numbers reported in European reviews (some reported as high as 1.4G) and compare that to modern day cars, you can forget about “sports cars” of the 90’s- even the king of the hill ZR-1 managed 1.2 G with its steamroller tires….how about a porsche 965 turbo of that era with 0.9G…. Doug, you need to try more spirited driving or just take it to a race track…..trust me….
