The Bizzarrini marque was the creation of Ing. Giotto Bizzarrini following his departure from Ferrari after the famous “Palace revolt”.

In total, 124 cars were built, each by hand and all slightly different from one another making each one unique.

Subject of this book is the beautiful and original Bizzarrini ‘GT Strada 5300’, a very rare example with a complete and reliable history dating back to 1967.

This car remained in Italy for its first six years after which it was exported to the US, eventually returning to Europe in 2012 when it was bought by its current owner, Guy Berryman.

It has very recently undergone a complete and highly authentic restoration at Thornley Kelham Ltd. With so few cars to cross-reference, thorough research was essential.

Details on this car were compared with information and pictorial references obtained from several sources including a number of specialist Bizzarrini books to ensure the interior, body and mechanicals were as they should be.

Starting with the complete disassembly of the car, the restoration involved around 4000 to 4500 hours of painstaking labour - typical of cars of this type of construction - alloy skins over a steel frame - spread over a period of between 18 and 24 months.
