A nice classic racing car but didn't have a good career

Among the many racing cars of the 1960s that had an exotic appearance, there were made specifically under commissioned of the automotive enthusiasts who were thick-pocketed to be used as the excellent vehicles that were driven in the racing circuit.

Now on this occasion, we will show a 1960s racing car that has its own uniqueness but thought not completely fulfill its potential as the racing car named Bizzarrini P538. The car was built under commissioned by the owner and constructed by Giotto Bizzarrini himself.
One of those rare Lamborghini V12 powered race cars, the Bizzarrini P538 located in the United States. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/37G4sut)
It was a mid-engined roofless racing car with a tubular steel chassis covered by a fiberglass body and did not have chassis numbers stamped on them. And could be said, this is a stunning car in look, however, it did not have a good race career.

And the first P538 was commissioned by the American race car driver, Mike Gammino who intended to race it in the Can-Am series. Gammino wanted the Lamborghini V12 engine to be used because he liked that engine and because Giotto Bizzarrini was the designer of that engine. The Gammino P538 would be an all Bizzarrini race car, while the other used a Corvette 327 CID V8 engine.

Originally introduced in late 1965 there have been many continuation cars made since the original four (although one of these four was likely made from parts from an earlier wrecked car). This is perhaps the last Bizzarrini made by Ing. Bizzarrini!
During its career on the circuit, the P538 was included in an unlucky car. Due to always been crashed and as a result did not have a successful race history. As far as we could tell, it was not the fault of the car itself instead most caused by some bad luck on the track and money problems as usual. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LAMBOCARS | MY CAR QUEST]
