Two Alfa Romeo Zagatos opened the 2018 GP of Italy. Shortly before the start of the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the Atelier, no less than four Zagato bodied Alfa Romeos have stolen the limelight at the F1 Milan Festival. Among these, the 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 GS Testafissa Zagato and the 1929 6C 1750 SS have carried Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen respectively during the Drivers’ Parade, that took place just minutes before the start of the race on Sunday. As the historical cars were lined up on the starting grid in the same order as in the F1 race, Kimi’s and Sebastian’s Alfa Zagatos were in first and second place. The Testafissa, winner of the 2018 Mille Miglia, debuted at the 1934 race with Scuderia Ferrari. The association between Ugo Zagato and Enzo Ferrari started in 1929, when the latter founded his Scuderia, following his own win, in 1927, at the wheel of a 6C 1500 Zagato at the Modena Circuit. Then, the success of Campari’s Zagato at the 1928 Mille Miglia finally convinced Enzo to choose the Milanese Atelier as his sole coachbuilding partner.
