Bizzarrini exhibits the primary photographs of the Giotto


In February 2023, Bizzarrini provided the primary glimpse of an all-new Hyper GT: The Giotto. Six months later, following aerodynamic evaluation validating the Giugiaro-designed styling, the primary full photographs of The Giotto are revealed, together with the primary particulars of Bizzarrini’s unique V12 powertrain. Collectively, these mark a key milestone within the journey in direction of the primary buyer deliveries of The Giotto deliberate for early 2026.

Named after the engineering virtuoso and firm founder, Giotto Bizzarrini, The Giotto is designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, alongside his son Fabrizio at GFG Model in Turin, Italy. This rekindles a model partnership first established 60 years in the past when a younger Giorgetto, while at Bertone, contributed to the design of the unique iconic Bizzarrini 5300 GT. Now his refined refinements to the bespoke carbon fiber physique of the Giotto have crafted a religious successor that delivers magnificence, efficiency, and usefulness.

A compelling mix of previous and current, Giorgetto and Fabrizio have captured parts of essentially the most legendary Bizzarrinis of all time and reinterpreted them for the fashionable period. The distinguished twin bonnet vents of the unique Bizzarrinis have developed into a brand new frontal visible character for The Giotto. Because the extremely slimline LED headlights converge within the heart of the bonnet they cradle the distinguished center-mounted Bizzarrini badge, simply because it was framed on the 5300 GT.

In profile, The Giotto is marked out by a reimagining of the 5300GT’s triangular B-pillar and a rear windscreen that wraps so elegantly it appears to cascade onto the wheel arches. Being rear-mid-engined, the predatory stance of The Giotto is a visible illustration of the big energy delivered via its rear wheels.

Situated beneath the curved strains of the rear display is the unique Bizzarrini V12 engine being produced in partnership with Cosworth. The brand new naturally aspirated Bizzarrini V12 will meet all worldwide legislative and emission rules and is being engineered to ship final engagement and drivability. In a poignant and becoming tribute to Giotto Bizzarrini, famend for his work on the unique Lamborghini V12, the engine could have a capability of 6626cc – the date of his start, 6 June 1926.

The genius of Giotto Bizzarrini stays the inspiration for this new supercar, not simply in its powertrain selection, but in addition in its pursuit of aerodynamic effectivity. Simply as he developed the cutting-edge design for the legendary Ferrari 250-based ‘bread van’, the technical and design groups behind The Giotto have targeted on efficiency via purity of kind. The Components One-derived dihedral entrance splitter and rear diffuser mix with the elegant built-in fastened rear wing to make sure applicable downforce for all driving situations.

Certainly one of Giotto Bizzarrini’s most acknowledged skills was his ability to push the bounds of up to date engineering. In its day Bizzarrini made in depth use of the strongest light-weight materials obtainable. Equally, the development of The Giotto makes use of the lightest, strongest, and most fitted supplies obtainable as we speak. In addition to the elegant carbon fiber pores and skin, the Giotto relies on a carbon fiber physique construction, drawing from applied sciences and manufacturing processes developed in top-tier motorsport.

Consistent with the unique plan, The Giotto will start on-road testing in late 2024, as a part of an engineering program that’s being led by Bizzarrini CTO, Chris Porritt.  “We have now a transparent imaginative and prescient for The Giotto, pushed not by lap instances or acceleration information however within the emotional engagement of each the driving force and the passenger.”

Complimenting Chris’s technical expertise gained throughout his time with Aston Martin, Tesla, Apple and Rimac, the group additionally advantages from that of its present CEO, Ian Fenton who brings vital expertise from Ford and Aston Martin along with the CCO, Julian Jenkins along with his 30 years working at a senior stage with many luxurious automotive manufacturers, together with; Jaguar Vehicles, Porsche, Bentley, Aston Martin, and Rolls Royce Motor Vehicles.

With deliveries of the 5300 GT Corsa Revival properly underway, and The Giotto mission clearly outlined, Bizzarrini enters a brand new section. To supervise the supply of future automobiles and the continued enlargement of the Bizzarrini model, Julian Jenkins is appointed Chief Govt Officer with impact from 1st November 2023. Ian Fenton, who has been instrumental in orchestrating the resurgence of the Model, will step down as CEO however proceed to be concerned as an advisor alongside Dr Ulrich Bez, beforehand CEO, Aston Martin, and senior engineering roles inside BMW and Porsche.

Julian Jenkins mentioned of the structural adjustments “The genius of Giotto Bizzarrini and his accomplishments throughout the automotive sector need to be acknowledged. As such, I’m honored to guide such a revered and storied model as we proceed in his imaginative and prescient to create elegant and emotionally partaking fashions. Ian has been pivotal within the strategic orchestration of the resurgence of Bizzarrini and I’m delighted he’ll proceed to play a future function as Strategic Advisor as we develop the Model past autos into a worldwide Luxurious icon.”

Rezam Al Roumi, proprietor of Bizzarrini, echoes the sentiment reflecting his private ardour for the Model and dedication to its future. “The legacy of Giotto Bizzarrini stretches over 60 years and is attributed to most of the most iconic automobiles and engines of our time, most significantly these bearing his personal identify. As custodian of this outstanding Model, I’m dedicated to returning Bizzarrini to its rightful place inside the luxurious automotive sector in addition to creating new alternatives to interact and delight our discerning purchasers.”
