The Bizzarrini 5300 GT was presented in 1965 and remained in production until 1965, assembled in 133 examples. Giotto Bizzarrini had a dream (like so many Italian engineers in the '60s of the Italian economic boom) to create a sports car capable of competing with Ferrari. At the time (it was 1964) he was still working at the Iso Rivolta dealing with the development of the Iso Grifo. Not getting the approval of his project from the ISO Rivolta, Bizzarrini decided to start his own business and to develop the car himself. The 5300 GT was born, a car that combined elegant lines inspired by Giorgetto Giugiaro's Grifo A3C with a 5.388cc Chevrolet-derived V8 engine.
