Alfa Romeo RZ (1992-94)

Convertible version of the SZ (Sprint Zagato), the Alfa Romeo RZ (Roadster Zagato) is a high-performance limited-production sports car built by Alfa Romeo with partnership via Centro Stile Zagato and Centro Stile Fiat. 3.0 L V6 12v engine.

Three colours were available as standard black, yellow and red, with black and yellow being the more popular choices. Yellow and red cars got a black leather interior and black cars burgundy. Although the interior layout was almost unchanged from the SZ, the RZ had a painted central console that swept up between the seats to conceal the convertible roof storage area. 

Only 284 units built before the Zagato factory producing the cars for Alfa Romeo went in to receivership in 1994. It has the lowest production number of any Alfa Romeo. (wikipedia)
