Each car in the Revival series represents the most authentic interpretation of the 5300 GT Corsa available. Built using the original blueprints, utilising components from original suppliers, with the input of experts originally involved in the 5300 GT project, it is as representative of the original as possible, while conforming to modern safety standards. To ensure the car looks exactly as it would have on the starting line at Le Mans in 1965, the Bizzarrini team became automotive archaeologists tracking down those responsible for restoration of chassis #0222 where layers of paint had been painstakingly stripped back to reveal the original racing red paint. This shade was then colour-matched for the Revival to create Rosso Corsa Bizzarrini 222.
The hand-built vehicles use a lightweight single-piece composite body over a steel frame, giving an overall weight in the region of 1 230kg. Inside, the two seats are protected by a more comprehensive six-point roll cage and safety fuel cell, meeting FIA Appendix K historic racing regulations. Independent rear suspension to Giotto’s Corsa specification and all-round disc brakes are paired with a period-specific 5300 cubic centimetre V8 with Weber 45 DCOE (Doppio Corpo Orizzontale E) carburettors developing over 400 horsepower to give a power-to-weight ratio comparable with a modern-day supercar.
