The Bizzarrini Revival Series opened a new chapter in the marque’s history.
In celebration of the most iconic vehicle to ever wear the badge, twenty four examples of the 5300 GT Corsa Revival will be hand-built by an experienced team of engineers.
The Bizzarrini 5300 GT Corsa was originally developed as a high-performance variant of the Giotto Bizzarrini engineered A3C. Designed by one of the world’s most prolific automotive designers, Giorgetto Giugiaro, with refinements by Piero Drogo of Carrozzeria Sports Cars, the 5300 GT was noted for its remarkable beauty and raw competitive spirit
The 5300 GT Corsa was light, fast and reliable, powered by a tried and tested front- mid mounted V8 engine, with 50:50 weight distribution and independent rear suspension. The car is famed for its performance in the1965 Le Mans 24 Hour Race. That summer, French racing drivers Regis Fraissinet and Jean de Mortemart took the over 5-litre class win at Le Mans, in what has become perhaps the most legendary 5300 GT of all time.

The 5300 GT Revival Corsa encapsulates the spirit of a bygone age of high-performance race cars
After Fraissinet and de Mortemart ran the race at an average speed of 169km/h, Giotto Bizzarrini himself drove the car home to Livorno, Northern Italy. A true racing car for the road.
The 5300 GT Revival Corsa 24/65 encapsulates the spirit of a bygone age of high-performance race cars, and the thin line that Bizzarrini drove between road and track. The Revival series is a true tool room continuation model. Each car is reverse engineered and hand-built, following the original factory drawings and blueprints, by a team of highly talented engineers and craftspeople with decades of experience at the cutting edge of competition sports car construction.
The use of a lightweight composite body, as was the original car, over a light tubular steel frame delivers a power to weight ratio comparable with that of a modern day supercar.
Driven by a front-mid mounted, period specific, 5300 cubic centimetre V8 engine delivering upwards of 400 horsepower, the Revival Edition has 50:50 weight distribution achieved via an engine block that sits so far back in the chassis, the distributor is adjusted through a cover in the dashboard. Safety is enhanced by the addition of an FIA certified full roll cage, safety belts, seats and fuel cell.
Almost impossibly low and exceptionally voluptuous, with a rear screen that is practically horizontal, the 5300 GT Corsa is dramatic from every angle. The cockpit is set within the flowing curves that extend all the way from the faired-in headlights through to the pared back rear end. Like all purist racing machines, the bodywork is broken only by deep air intakes for the engine and brakes; the distinctively minimal twin front vents give the car its characteristic Bizzarrini ‘face’.
