This Alfa Romeo Giulia Tubolare Zagato, chassis AR 750046, was completed by the factory on 10th December 1964 before being delivered through SOFAR (Alfa Romeo France), to Mr Gaspin. The car was finished in blue with a black interior, consistent with today’s specification.

In the early 1970’s the car was owned by Mr Graziano in Milan before returning to France on 17th January 1974 at which point it was registered with the license ‘346 QT 34’. The car remained in France until October 2003, during which time it competed at the Tour Auto, Le Mans Classic and Tour Espagne. Also during this time, the car changed hands to Mr Jean-Louis Laborde in 1975, who registered it with French license ‘7 PX 47’. Mr Laborde maintained ownership of 750046 until June 2002 when it was bought and registered to Mr Thierry Moriceau in Paris with license ‘465 PDD 75’. In December 2002, this car was featured in an article in Automobile Historique magazine in Germany.

In October 2003, 750046 was purchased by well-known and respected classic car collector and competitor Mr Ross Warburton, who registered the car in the UK on license ‘KYY 85C’. Mr Warburton is an enthusiastic collector of classic cars, regularly seen competing in his 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C, and spent much of his time with 750046 on the track, including the Tour Auto and many Masters Series events across Europe. The current owner purchased the car in 2012 and competed with 750046 at Le Mans, Paul Ricard and Spa-Francorchamps.

In its current ownership, the car has been regularly maintained by Tim Samways Sporting & Historic Car Engineers in the UK with and engine rebuild completed over the winter of 2015-2016 and the most recent work in May 2017 including a gearbox rebuild. This car has been well maintained, focussing on historic competition with no expense spared.
