Engineer Giotto Bizzarrini started his career as a project manager for the most important Italian constructors in the 60’s: Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Iso Rivolta. Pursuing his dreams, he decided in 1964 to create his own company and focus on his creations. With the financial help of Rivolta, Bizzarrini designed his dream racing car. The result is a V8 engine mounted on an aluminum riveted chassis, directly inspired by the race car heritage. The first version was named A3/L, quickly followed by the A3/C. From that moment on, a legend was born.
Technically, the A3/C is built on the shortened Iso Rivolta chassis, another car designed by Bizzarrini. The engine is pushed far back of the front axle, so the result is a 50/50 weight distribution. The bodywork is made with aluminum for lightness, joined by exposed rivets (7000 rivets all over the coachwork). The car is very low to the ground for higher speed, with a maximum of 180 mph. The car was presented for the first time in Turin in 1963, and participated in the Le Mans 24h race in 1964 and 1965. The car arrived on the 9th and 14th position.
Despite the immediate success of the car, Mr Bizzarrini was quickly caught up by financial problems and was forced to stop the production in 1969. He produced in total 22 A3/C and around 50 5300 (the version after the A3/C). As a result, being the owner of a “Bizzarrini” is a rare privilege, and a must-have for true connoisseurs.
This car is chassis number B-0216 and was sold new in Germany in 1965 to Auto-Decker. The car was involved in an accident in the 70’s and went back to Bizzarrini’s workshop for a full restoration. The car was fully renovated, painted in black and upgraded to the lastest Bizzarrini 5300 norms. Soon after, the car was sold to buyers in the USA and belonged to Kevin Rodgers and his partners, Scott Stupay and Mark Moshayedi (well-known businessmen and car collectors).
In 2013, Mr. Moshayedi decided to send his car to Italy to undergo a full and comprehensive ground-up restoration by the expert Salvatore Diomante, Bizzarrini workshop craftsman the 60’s. The car is now back in its original configuration, and the result is outstanding. The color of the car is a radiant Mela Verde (apple green) which makes it unforgettable. Diomante also managed to renovate the engine for performance and safety. The output of the Chevrolet engine is 400 horsepower. The car is a beauty to watch as well as to drive.
This model is very well documented and has a certificate of authenticity delivered by Mr. Diomante.
This model represented a remarkable achievement for an independent constructor such as Bizzarini, and while the production run was short-lived, it was exceptional. He had created just a racing car, but a legend.
