Bizzarrini P538 – Italian & Thai Design with an American Heart

Filed under: Cars — Tags: — blasterhappy @ 5:58 am

CHONBURI, Thailand — You might think the Italians and the Thais would make for strange automotive bedfellows, and for the most part you would be correct. In the case of Scuderia Bizzarrini and the modern-day P538, we can only hope the nascent partnership results in at least a limited run of cars.
The carbon-fiber chassis of the P538, will house a Corvette 7.0-liter LS7 V8 rated at 500-plus horsepower and mated to the same Cima six-speed sequential gearbox that’s used in the Pagani Zonda and Koenigsegg CCX supercars. Bizzarrini customers also will be able to order a 1,000-hp twin-turbo Lingenfelter-modified LS7. Only 100 cars are intended to be built over a four year period. See the complete article here.
