    After working for Alfa Romeo, Dr. Ing. Giotto Bizzarrini went to Ferrari and was one of many of the company’s personnel to revolt and lose their jobs after the controversial sacking of Ferrari’s sales manager at the end of 1961.As the prime mover behind the 250 GTO and 250 Testa Rossa, Bizzarrini’s pedigree was exemplary and he was quickly asked to design the 350 GT V12 engine for Lamborghini.

    Bizzarrini returned to automobile manufacturing in 1962 with backing from Dottore Renzo Rivolta. A 2+2 coupé was the first car produced and this was followed by their next project the 2-seat Grifo.The Bertone design was constructed by Pierro Drogo and was considered one of the stylist’s most stunning creations. This car the Iso Grifo became known as the Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada after Rivolta and Bizzarrini ended their collaboration.
    Convinced of its competition potential Bizzarrini was soon racing the car with great success.

    The Bizzarrini Strada had lightweight aluminium bodywork and a fabricated platform chassis, the semi-monocoque body was riveted to the frame for added stiffness, this along with excellent weight distribution resulted in fantastic handling. Depending on the engine fitted and its configuration a top speed of up to 180 mph was claimed.

    Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada, chassis no. IA3 0264 is finished in red with black interior and according to Jack Koobs de Hartog, the keeper of the European Bizzarrini Register has a continuous ownership history including we are led to believe Bruce Mc Laren chassis number IA3 0264 is described as being completely correct and is ready to participate in the very best historic events on the planet.

    Today, the car is presented by Cars International in absolutely superb condition and has to be the finest example available for sale.

    Finally Giotto Bizzarrini, the man behind some of Ferrari’s legendary cars and acknowledged as being the ‘Father’ of the 250 GTO said of this car:

    “I started with the idea of the Ferrari GTO and wanted to improve on it.”

  12. nice car
