Giotto Bizzarini, the Italian sports car company and the brilliant automotive engineer behind their iconic masterpiece. But, now it is back in business with the revival of one of the most iconic race cars in the world – the luxurious 5300 GT Corsa.
Nearly five decades later, Bizzarrini brings back the iconic sports car with the 5300 GT Corsa Revival, a modern sports car following the original blueprints. Before delving deep into the fine-grained details of the authentic recreation of Giotto Bizzarini’s first car, let’s first travel back to the 1960s, and learn the fascinating story of the company and its founder, who designed the luxurious GT 5300 Corsa.
Giotto Bizzarrina began his career in the automobile industry in 1953 with Alfa Romeo. He trained as a test driver and engineer at Alfa Romeo’s Skunkworks before joining Ferrari in 1957. Giotto’s most notable achievement at Ferrari was designing the 250 GTO and SWB 250 sports cars. However, he was dismissed enzo ferrari In 1961, along with other prominent engineers, an event known as the Palace Rebellion. ferruccio lamborghiniEnzo’s arrival took advantage of the opportunity and commissioned Giotto to design Lamborghini’s first V12 engine. This twelve-cylinder mill was first used in the 1963 350 GT, then in the 2010 Murcielago.
Taking advantage of every opportunity to fly and succeed, Giotto Bizzarini partners with Italian industrialist renzo rivolta To develop sports cars for the later ISO brand. From this collaboration came the revolutionary development of the Iso Grifo A3/C – the Iso Grifo A3/L road car which was also designed by Bizzarrini. While Iso was intended to produce the road-going A3/L, Giotto focused on developing the A3/C. Later that year, the collaborative working relationship between the two Italian industrialists broke down, and they went their separate ways.
Buoyed by his previous successes, Giotto eventually established his own name, the marque. Initially, talented Italian engineers designed variants of the Grifo A3/L and A3/C models, dubbed the 5300 GT Strada and 5300 GT Corsa respectively. Between 1964 and 1968, Bizzarini introduced a series of sparkling sports cars, including the open-cockpit P538 sports prototype and the 1900 GT Europa. Bizzarrini has a rich history in motorsport. The legendary 5300 GT Corsa won its class and finished the race at the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans, defeating Ferrari. However, and despite this proud history, Bizzarini closed its doors in 1969.
Did the Italian brand die in 1969? Definitely not! In 2018, Kuwaiti-owned Pegasus Brands acquired the trademark and intellectual property rights of the Bizzarrini marque. As an international dealer group representing prestigious brands such as Aston Martin, Koenigsegg, and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Pegasus operates London, Geneva, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Americaand the Far East.

For the 5300 GT Corsa revival, 24 examples of homages to the original 5300 GT will be hand-built in the UK at Bizzarrini’s dedicated factory. The first prototype of the Bizzarrini 5300 GT Corsa Revival has already hit the roads for final endurance testing before the first customer cars are built and delivered.

Using original blueprints from a 1960s masterpiece, the engineers involved in the new Bizzarrini added some improvements in keeping with modern safety regulations. For example, the original car’s fuel tanks were located deep in the sills as well as behind the driver. Now, the fuel tank created using 3D scanning technology fills the void in the chassis. As a result, the fuel capacity was increased to 95 liters, giving one hour and eight minutes of running at full speed, thus keeping the range within multiple-round racing requirements.
Test drives of the Bizzarrini 5300 GT Corsa Revival revealed that the new exotic car is more rigid than Giotto Bizzarrini’s original car, with a lightweight single-piece composite body built on a steel frame. At just 1250kg, the modern Bizzarrini has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio.
Inside, a six-point roll cage protects the two available seats. The period-specific, 400-hp 5.3-litre V8 engine with Weber 45 carburetor pairs with independent rear suspension and all-round disc brakes to comply with Giotto’s Corsa specifications.
For the Rosso Corsa Red paint job, the Bizzarrini team found an original body panel that had been hidden from light for all these years and color-matched it to get the Rosso Corsa shade that would be applied to all new Revival models.
