by Mike –

The one of a kind Bizzarrini Manta is for sale at the upcoming Gooding auction in Pebble Beach during Monterey Car Week.

I have written about this car a few times:

Like many works of art, pictures cannot accurately translate what this car is like in person. It is much lower than you imagine.

The Judges

I believe the most important part of the Manta’s history is that it was the first car designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro after he started his new firm Italdesign.

The Judges Love This Car

I know Ron and Diane, the owners of this special car. They saved it from obscurity and put it on the world stage for all to see from Pebble Beach to Villa d’Este to Palos Verdes, where all of the pictures here were taken and where my silver Bizzarrini GT 5300 Strada sat a few feet away from the Manta in the photo below.

It is difficult to share a stage with the Manta.
