Giotto Bizzarrini – A Body Designer? – A Preview

by Mike –

When most people think of Giotto Bizzarrini and the race cars he created, or helped create, they probably think that the body design was done by others like Piero Drogo, Giorgetto Giugiaro or Sergio Scaglietti.

It makes sense to me that Giotto Bizzarrini had a good understanding of the aerodynamics of a race car in the late 1950s and early 1960s when he was deeply involved in creating some of the most exciting race cars of that era: the Ferrari 250 Short Wheel Base (SWB), the Ferrari 250 GTO, the Ferrari 250 SWB “Breadvan” and his own Iso A3/C (Bizzarrini GT 5300).

To be continued tomorrow …
