Bizzarrini Giotto: a V12 for a renaissance

Fashion is for new manufacturers and other renaissances in the world of luxury and/or sports cars. The same goes for Bizzarrini. Created in 1964 and then defunct in 1969, the Italian house was relaunched in 2020 thanks to a Kuwaiti investor, Rezam Al Roumi. Since then, the brand has settled on British soil and launched a “Continuation” series of its legendary 5300 GT, the first copy of which was delivered in 2022. But Bizzarrini wants to look to the future and will offer a V12-powered supercar. Borrowed from Lamborghini. My dear idea!

In a nod to history, Giorgetto Giugiaro contributed to the design of the Bizzarrini Giotto through the design company GFG Style, which he runs with his son Fabrizio. Already involved in the styling of the original 5300 GT, the legendary Italian designer has clearly not lost touch with it. Robust, muscular and ready to jump, the Giotto combines style and aerodynamics and will do justice to Italy’s reputation for handsome bodywork. Wanting to be a modern interpretation of the Bizzarrini 5300 GT, it is decked out in red, of course, but it also occupies the double air intakes at the front, the triangle-shaped B-pillar, or the rear window that blends into the rear fenders. . .

But plumage alone is no longer enough these days and Bizzarrini has secured a crash partner to liven up his supercar. In fact, we should find under the hood of the Giotto a V12 Lamborghini, while the brand with the bull will no longer offer them… without electrification ! So it will be a naturally aspirated engine initially designed in Sant’Agata Bolognese, but one that needs to be modified to meet Bizzarrini’s requirements. Remember that Giotto Bizzarrini had been involved in the development of Lamborghini’s first V12. History is an eternal restart!

Still on the technical side, Bizzarrini indicates that the transmission will be in charge of an 8-speed dual-clutch robotic gearbox, that the hull will be made of composites and inspired by competition, and that the body will be made of carbon fiber. Production is expected to start in 2024.
