There's a company that makes exact cosmetic replicas of them out of hand-formed aluminum body panels, using a modern 6-spd tranny and suspension, w/ a FI Alfa V8 for ~$300k, sans interior (you supply that yourself). Below is a replica.

Like a lot of Zagato designs, pictures don't really do it justice. There are subtle cues that you need to be close to the car to notice, along the front fenders and especially around the rear haunches, and how the seats are enveloped in their own alcoves and set into the body. Also the interior is one of the best ever put in any vehicle, period.
