Bizzarrini P538

by Mike

The Bizzarrini P538 is a mid-engine race car without a top. Originally two were made with a Lamborghini V12 engine and two were made with the Corvette 5.3 liter V8. The body is fiberglass over a tubular steel chassis. This is a stunning car in person, however, it did not have a successful race career. Originally introduced in 1965 there have been many continuation cars made since the original four.

The car in this video is an exact reproduction of the 1965 Le Mans race car, commissioned by the owner, and constructed by Giotto Bizzarrini himself. Perhaps the last Bizzarrini made by Ing. Bizzarrini! It was at Concourso Italiano in Monterey, California in August 2010 parked next to my Bizzarrini GT 5300 Strada.
