Bizzarrini Completes Production on 5300GT Corsa Revival

The brand assembled one car per month & will now begin production on the Giotto...

Just 24 months from the announcement of the prototype Bizzarrini 5300 GT Corsa Revival, the build of the 24th and final car has been completed.

Created in a green flecked hue known as Bizzarrini Verde Bosco Ventiquattro (VBV), it’s a celebration of the end of production of the hand-built continuation, based on the car that won its class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1965.

As with every part of the Corsa Revival continuation programm, the color choice has its roots in authentic Bizzarrini history, according to the company. A concours-winning original example, owned by an American collector, wears a near-identical shade and he granted Bizzarrini’s bespoke team access to the car to gather samples to create a match for the modern-day revival.

Each car in the Revival series is crafted with a lightweight single piece composite body, over a steel frame. Inside, the two seats are protected by a more comprehensive six-point roll cage and safety fuel cell, meeting FIA Appendix K regulations.

With a front-mid engine layout, independent rear suspension to Giotto’s innovative Corsa specification and all-round disc brakes paired with a period-specific 5,300 cubic centimeter V8 developing over 400 horsepower, the Bizzarrini 5300 GT Corsa Revival has a power to weight ratio comparable to a modern supercar.

Producing one bespoke, hand-built 5300 GT Corsa Revival each month at Bizzarrini’s dedicated facility in the UK is a sign of the maturity of the business as it continues preparations to launch the all-new Giotto hypercar. Focused on driving engagement, rather than pure lap times, the Giotto will be powered by a bespoke V12 designed in collaboration with Cosworth.

“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,” said Simon Busby, Bizzarrini CMO. “As we reach the end of this chapter and ready for the next, this feels like another significant step in our journey. Now, our attention shifts to the development of the Giotto, delivering a car that will be more than worthy to carry the revered name.”
