Less than a year away from the 100th anniversary of the Milanese brand (1919-2019), Scuderia Sports Zagato Chopard triumphs at the Mille Miglia. The 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 GS Testafissa Zagato, driven by Juan Tonconogy and Barbara Ruffini, finished first, just like Giuseppe Campari and Giulio Ramponi did 90 years ago with their Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 SS Zagato. In 1927, it was with a 6C 1500 Zagato that Enzo Ferrari won at the Modena circuit, while, in 1928, Campari’s extraordinary performance at the MM finally convinced him to choose Ugo Zagato as sole coachbuilding partner for the nascent Scuderia Ferrari (1929). In fact, Tonconogy’s 1500 GS TF Zagato on its bonnet sports the Prancing Horse. On the lower step of the podium, another Zagato-bodied Alfa, the 1929 6C 1750 SS manned by Vesco-Guerini.
