Manta

Bizzarrini Manta

Built on the chassis of a 5300 GT (rumoured to have been on the original Le Mans competition cars), the Bizzarrini Manta was designed and built by Giorgetto Giugiaro’s new independent venture, Italdesign. Shown at the 1968 Turin Motor Show, the Manta eschewed flowing curves for a more rigorous, geometric approach. With a central driving position flanked by two passenger seats, this timeless design was also truly innovative.
