This slim Bizzarrini P538 was built to race the narrow streets of Viareggio

This spectacular 1974 Bizzarrini P538 is one of just eight in the world, and it’s coming up for auction at Auctomobile’s Premium Cars online sale on April 14th.

If your car collection has been in need of a crown jewel, then we highly recommend taking a look at Auctomobile’s upcoming Premium Cars online auction on April 14th. There are three stunning automobiles going under the hammer: a unique 1953 Alfa Romeo 1900C Sprint Supergioiello, a fabulous 1938 BMW 328 Roadster, and then of course our favourite of the lot, this knee-buckling 1974 Bizzarrini P538. The penultimate car built of a series of eight under the direction of legendary designer Giotto Bizzarrini, this Bizzarrini is the only narrow-bodied version of its kind, as requested by its first owner so it could be driven along the village of Viareggio’s narrow streets. 

Not only is it obscenely beautiful - just look at that rear - but it’s mighty potent too, packing a whopping 480hp into its slender 800kg body. Thanks to its narrower-than-usual body, this is actually the lightest P538 ever made, and as a result it packs a Veyron-beating power to weight ratio! Originally equipped with a Lamborghini V12 from a 400 GT, it has since had a heart transplant and was fitted with a far more reliable, lighter Chevrolet V8. So, if you have a functioning pair of eyes and a beating heart, we know you’re already looking forward to Auctomobile’s Premium Cars auction on April 14th.
