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


Alfa Romeo RZ review! The Alfa Romeo SZ and RZ are two of the strangest sports cars of the 1990s. Today I'm reviewing the Alfa RZ (the convertible version of the Alfa SZ) and I'll show you the quirks and features of the Alfa RZ/SZ. I'm also going to drive the Alfa Romeo RZ and show you what it's like behind the wheel of this odd car.

    I dunt get it. Is he trying to lower the value of cars or what? I just dont get it. Maybe he has become cynical in his old age. Sometimes when you dont refresh your style for quite a while, this is what you become.

    Since when was there a convertible version? I knew of this car, thought it looked good, and then there's an even rarer version. The coupe isn't the best looks, but it looks unique and the spoiler looks cool

    SZ is a design classic. Doug clearly is out of his mind, as always. And clueless, does not mention anything what made this car special. Bodypanel materials, suspension, balance etc etc and very good engine.

    The SZ is basically a two seat GTV6 with a crazy body. Under the hood is pure GTV6 albeit a bit tidier in terms of wire management. The shift quality is probably better due to the rear transaxle is a bit closer due to the shortened chassis. Here's an old video of my GTV6 for comparison. (I finally have center caps for the wheels now!)

    to be honest such bad design and design elements all-round is inexcusable. i mean cmon.. a whole ass car brand with hundreds or maybe thousands of employees, and no one said ey guys I think we can design this a bit better? and I'm not just referring to its exterior design, but everything from the aircon to the roof to literally everything. so glad alfa sorted this mess out and got their shit together

    Prob. one of the first times, in which i disagree with the Dough Score. 45 seems a little high to be honest. Sure, its rare, its weird - but is it 8 out of 10 cool? I dont think so. Knock it down to a 6. Same with styling, yes weird, but stylisch? nah. Give it a 3.

    Now, Doug you must drive the Alfa 75 V6. Why? Because you drove one as a 2 door. Yes!! The RZ is a complete Alfa 75, shortend but still the same. I will wait... (A Alfa 75 owner who still enjoys the driving of this last rear wheel drive car from Alfa. The great swan song!)

    Love ur vids for years now , but noticed recently u focus less on gimmicks and filling up time with less necessary stuff. Battery cutoff under bonnet, odd rear fog lights, u didn't even turn on headlights or check the suspension adjusters :/ On a sidenote, always found that car and coupe as awesome looking. Maybe BC I'm European 😁👍

    Oh, Dougie. You should really refresh you late 1980-1990 european cars. This is very fitting of that era of Alfa Romeos, and even of that era of italian budget sports cars. Fiat Coupe, Maserati Shamal of the top of my head, and Aston Martin Virage, BMW 850 for the same style in a longer chassis

    Car's beautifull,especially from the profile and back.I love the high and cut back,typical of the 1980's but is looking good and used even today. Headlights aren't ugly either,but they are too small,too low and too many for me.I would have liked 2 to 4 significantly bigger ones,like the fog stop lamp in the back,at least.

    The thing about the reliability is that since that engine has been around for so long and it’s just a v6 probably not terrible to work on. Electrical issues would be the main concern. Also probably not bad. There’s a lot of engine bay space

    This fits with the styling of the Alfa Romeo 75/Milano, in the US. Sort of a redesign of the storied GTV-6 to follow the design language the 75/Milano started.

    Seriously Dough, your sarcastic and arrogant tone is just showing that you have no taste, you should stop reviewing cars after this one, this is an epic Alfa Romeo ! Very rare and actually very very beautiful looking car, for the 80-ies and 90-ies this is a space ship design , I mean look at all your american crap that you produced in 90-ies, everything was square, square dash, square dials, square seats, square lights, I bet if you were allowed you will put a square steering wheel in your american cars. So yeah dislike from my side, go learn some automotive design history man...

    Doug panning the car for not fitting the design trends of the era, is exactly why the car is so unique! Its why we got cars like the Citroen DS! There's already thousands of unmemorable cars out there and today, manufacturers are too scared to push the design envelope and risk a sales flop, so these oddities will become even more interesting in the future. Harry's garage reviewed the SZ coupe (much better looking imo) with a more spirited drive and with a comment section full of praise for this quirky little Alfa
