Scuderia Bizzarrini has authorized the announcement of the newly designed and nearly completed Scuderia Bizzarrini P538.
The New P538 will be available for viewing at the Nardo Ring in May of 2008. Special highlights:
- Full carbon monocoque
- Full carbon Body work
- 500+ Horsepower (standard)
- Total weight under 800kg
The Bizzarrini P538 Roadster is a modern day tribute to the man, Mr. Bizzarrini, and his cars that were built in the mid 60's to race at Le Mans.
Based on the Galmer Arbitrage GT chassis, the P538 is a re-bodied Roadster version retaining essentially all of the original design but embracing the "open top" body concept with the style of the original 1966 P538.
Mr. Giotto Bizzarrini originally built Roadsters to race in the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hour race. The first powered by a Lamborghini V12 and the second a 7 Liter GM V8 engine. The new car which carries his name and type number (P538), uses the latest generation GM LS7 V8 motor, and has been openly accepted by Mr. Bizzarrini as a fitting tribute and a car to carry his name into the modern era.
