It should come as little surprise that Giotto Bizzarrini, a talented young engineer from a wealthy Italian family, was drawn to the excitement and romance of his nation’s blood-red racing cars. His passion and talent eventually brought him to Ferrari, where he helped develop three of the most iconic and successful race cars of the era - the 250 TR, the 250 SWB, and the mythical 250 GTO. Bizzarrini then joined the ISO design team to lead the development of a new GT car, a mating of great Italian style to a high-powered, reliable Corvette engine, which he believed superior to Ferrari’s power plants, offering bulletproof reliability and prodigious torque. He joined forces with the great, young design talent, Giorgetto Giugiaro, who was already in charge of styling at Bertone, and they created the beautiful ISO Grifo A3/C. But Bizzarrini’s urge to return to racing left him restless. So, he once again called upon Pietro Drogo to help develop a new racecar, one based on the ISO Grifo A3/C. It would bear his own name - the Bizzarrini GT 5300 Corsa.
