Bizzarrini Giotto bows with retro-inspired looks, supercar power
The revived car marque Bizzarrini has unveiled its first car in a very long time: the Giotto, named so after the founder of the original company.
Giorgetto Giugaro and his son Fabricio joined forced to design the exterior of the mid-engined supercar packing a naturally aspirated V12 behind the seats. Around six decades ago, it was Giugaro Senior who helped design the iconic Bizzarrini 5300 GT (see video).
The team behind the project claims that the car is meant to embody Italian style, luxury and driving enjoyment. Its body, while sticking to the modern supercar proportions, nonetheless looks unusual and experimental in places and reflects the Bizzarrini legacy. The front end with its slim headlamps in particular hearkens back to the 1960s-era classics often equipped with two-slit radiator grilles. As for the profile view, it resembles the abovementioned 5300 GT quite a bit.
Little is known in the technical department at the moment. The company promises us a compound chassis, a carbon-fiber body and an active aero kit. The V12 will be linked with an eight-speed DCT.
The rest will be announced later in 2023, and the first road tests are set to begin in a year or so. The project is being supervised by Chris Porritt, current Bizzarrini CTO whose background also includes working for Aston Martin, Tesla, Rimac, and Apple.
