I find it "interesting" that they would leave that so prominently displayed on the trunk.OK I noticed something and I would like some of the insiders to give me a hand with it if they are allowed.
On the back of the camo mule, there is TZ3 CORSA PROVA USA. Which Google translate tells me is TZ3 Test Run USA. Are all of the mules using Italian nomenclature? It just seems odd that they would have Italian on the back of the car that is for US production, and being tested in the US. Is it possible that this might be a mule for a possible Maserati? Wasn't there rumors about Viper and Maserati sharing a platform at one point?
Or am I over thinking this....
So possibly a recycled mule body from that program? Or maybe a continuation of that program ( you didnt really say )I find it "interesting" that they would leave that so prominently displayed on the trunk.
The TZ3 (Corsa and Stradale) are cars developed by Zagato using the ACR as the starting point. They have a carbon fiber tub mated to a steel chassis, dressed with hand formed aluminum panels.
Here is a link to the cars http://www.autoblog....stradale-zagato
As for sharing and development, I would think that the performance brands of FIAT-Chrysler (barred Ferrari) will have both a hand in the development and a go at creating their own version of any platform and architecture that we'll see coming out. And yes, reportedly Maserati guys have been seen stateside, and "Viper" mules have been spotted testing in Italy.
