The newest V12-engined supercar to mark the Bizzarrini reborn

NEW Beast As we seen recently on Twitter, Bizzarrini SpA, one of the famous Italian brands in the past has announced that it will revive in the automotive world by launching its newest supercar model. This is not surprising, so far, many well-known car manufacturers in the past have made such efforts like this, when they tried to get back on their feet.

The marque carries the name of its founder who is none other than an Italian experienced engineer Giotto Bizzarrini. Even though it existed for several years and had produced several masterpieces such as the Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada, Bizzarrini 5300 SI Spyder, Bizzarrini 1900 GT Europa, Bizzarrini P538, and the most unique Bizzarrini Manta, unfortunately the company had to close its doors after experiencing many serious problems in 1969. Since then, the company has made several attempts to revive itself, such as in the 1990s and then in 2006.

Well to mark its reborn this time, the Bizzarrini firm unveiled its first all-new supercar, which will arrive later this year in limited numbers, powered by a Lamborghini-derived V12, and called the Bizzarrini Giotto. As its name, clearly the supercar is dedicated to the firm's original founder, Giotto Bizzarrini, an engineer and test driver who played a vital role in developing the Ferrari 250 GTOLamborghini 350 GTV PrototipoIso Rivolta, Iso Grifo A3, and many others.

Looking at the exterior appearance, it turns out that the Bizzarrini Giotto shares a similar design with the Bizzarrini 5300 GT, but with bespoke carbon fiber bodywork, narrow LED headlights and dual hood-mounted air vents. Furthermore it also has a wrap-around windshield and a teardrop-shaped rear end to maximize aerodynamic efficiency. Related to this, the automaker said that the Giotto's composite body was formed using technology derived from motorsport, and has met worldwide safety standards.

Furthermore as mentioned above, its powertrain will use a Lamborghini-derived naturally aspirated V12. The engine will be rear-mid-mounted and mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. So far Bizzarrini still hasn't disclosed the detailed technical specifications, which reportedly will be revealed later this year, with all of its engineering aspects overseen by Bizzarrini CTO Chris Porritt, a former engineering lead at Aston Martin, Tesla and Rimac. While testing is scheduled to begin in 2024.

As quoted from Autocar, Porritt described that the Giotto's development was not focused on chasing acceleration times or lap records, but developing a car that appeals to those experienced drivers who seek purity, authenticity, and rarity. This is vocal and emotive, it’s mechanical and it’s tactile. But it’s also incredibly practical and luxurious, delivered with the personality and emotion of a bespoke Italian brand.
Unfortunately, no pricing information has been detailed for this Bizzarrini's newest supercar. However, if you are interested in nostalgia with the legendary Bizzarrini 5300 GT, the Livorno-based automaker offer its revival version with a price tag starting at £ 1.65 million and is limited to just 24 units. Hurry up because the number is limited!😉 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BIZZARRINI | AUTOCAR ]
