Bizzarrini Giotto Hyper GT – this strange car was designed by Giugiaro and is somewhat related to the classic Bizzarrini 5300 GT, equipped with a naturally aspirated V12 engine.

Bizzarrini Giotto Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio, the new Giotto has a stunning appearance. The 85-year-old legendary Italian designer worked on the Bizzarrini 5300 GT Corsa Revival during his days at Bertone and was given the opportunity to create a car that inherited the modern spirit.

After sketching out the model in February this year, new images give us a better look at Giotto and the 5300 GT Corsa Revival sequel.

The Bizzarrini Giotto is called the “Hyper GT” with a carbon fiber body, equipped with a Cosworth naturally aspirated V12 engine backed by motorsport technology.

The carbon fiber body was designed by Giorgetto and Fabrizio Giugaro of the GFG Style studio in Turin. It was a logical choice since the Italian master of automotive design was involved in the creation of the original Bizzarini 5300 GT in the 1960s when he worked for Bertone.

The Giotto hypercar has a mid-engine ratio with a pointed nose, a body shaped with embossed and aerodynamic lines and a long tail.

In terms of design, Giotto not only looks beautiful because the body is meticulously crafted to optimize aerodynamics. To that end, the car features a double-sided front splitter, an F1-inspired rear diffuser, along with similarities to early Bizzarrini models.

The Giotto also features dual hood vents, slimline LED lights, triangular B-pillars and a wraparound rear windscreen. The side air intakes are reminiscent of the C8 Corvette, but overall this model is quite similar to the Pagani Utopia and Gordon Murray T.33.

The new V12 engine built by Cosworth has a capacity of 6.6 liters, 6,626 cc to be exact, which is also Giotto Bizzarrini’s birth date (June 6, 1926).

The famous Cosworth engineer, who passed away earlier this year, was known to have been involved in the development of the original Lamborghini V12 as well as iconic cars like the Ferrari 250 GTO.

Bizzarrini did not release power and torque figures for the naturally aspirated engine but said it will “meet all global emissions regulations”. At the same time, it hopes to “deliver optimal interaction and drivability.”

The Giotto engine combines an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and a carbon fiber chassis that uses “technology and manufacturing processes developed in top-level motorsport”.

Bizzarrini CTO Chris Porritt, who has worked at Aston Martin, Tesla, Apple and Rimac, said: “We have a clear vision for Giotto, driven not by lap times or acceleration records but by driver and the emotional bond between driver and passenger”.

Bizzarrini, owned by Rezam Al Roumi, has announced a number of changes in its corporate structure as current CEO Ian Fenton (ex-Ford and Aston Martin) will be replaced by Julian Jenkins (ex-Jaguar, Porsche , Bentley, Aston Martin, and Rolls-Royce), although Fenton will remain at Bizzarrini in an advisory role.

Bizzarrini is now sticking to his original plan of starting testing this model at the end of 2024. Bizzarrini is not only busy with Giotto but also preparing for deliveries of the 5300 GT Corsa Revival. Expected price of Bizzarrini Giotto Hyper GT is up to 2 million USD.
