Driver and carmaker Giotto Bizzarrini's modern remake of his iconic P538 sports car could hit tracks this year
by Stuart Schwartzapfel
This concept is a remake of the iconic P538 sports car from the late 1960s. Famed driver, engineer, and carmaker Giotto Bizzarrini is reviving the model he once drove as a new, modern super-car. Bizzarrini, a veritable automotive legend, was a test driver for the likes of Alfa Romeo and Ferrari.
The new P538 will feature an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber body, updated with sloping headlamps. Body lines echo those of the original, but oversize wheels with visible red brake calipers add a high-tech, contemporary accent. Like the original P538, the new vehicle will be powered by a midmounted Corvette V8 engine from General Motors (GM). The vehicle is slated to go into production this year, with a goal of building 100 cars over a period of four years. The price has yet to be determined.
The Verdict: A classic—reimagined by an icon.
