Bizzarrini finishes Corsa Revival cars and moves on to new Giotto hypercar project

The last of the Bizzarrini 5300 GT Corsa Revival cars has been completed, barely two years after the project began to hand-build two dozen clones of the 1965 Le Mans class winner. The final car was extra special, painted in Bizzarrini Verde Bosco Ventiquattro painstakingly copied from the green flecked hue on a concours-winning original example based in the USA.

Each Revival car uses a single-piece composite body over a steel frame, while there is a six-point roll-cage inside and a safety fuel cell that meets FIA Appendix K. The mechanical spec retains the front-mid engine layout of the originals, plus an independent rear suspension to Giotto Bizzarrini’s Corsa spec, all-round disc brakes and a 400bhp V8.

The cars have been built in the UK and the company wlll now embark on its next project, the Giotto hypercar. Designed by Giorgetto and Fabrizio Giugiaro at GFG Style in Turin, Italy, and due to be powered by a Cosworth-designed V12 the Giotto will be ‘focused on driving engagement, rather than pure lap times or outright speed’.

Simon Busby, Bizzarrini CMO, said: “The 5300 GT Corsa Revival was envisioned as a reintroduction of the Bizzarrini brand to the elite tiers of the automotive world. Ever since we finished the first car 24 months ago, we’ve been working relentlessly to deliver authentic and perfect Revival models to the world’s most passionate car collectors. As we reach the end of this chapter and ready for the next, this feels like another significant step in our journey; the demand for this car and the interest in our future plans is exactly the reaction we felt that the rebirth of the Bizzarrini brand – attached to one of the greatest automotive engineers and designers of all times – deserved. Now, our attention shifts to the development of the Giotto, delivering a car that will be more than worthy to carry the revered name.”
