Description

Bizzarrini 5300 Strada
Designed by ex-Ferrari chief engineer Giotto Bizzarrini in 1963, the Strada was launched by his company in 1965. It was similar in concept to the Iso Grifo, also designed by Mr. Bizzarrini, and even used the Grifo name while in the planning stage, as well as the welded unibody platform of the Iso Rivolta 300.[1]

The Strada was powered by a Chevrolet small-block 327 Corvette engine displacing 5358 cc and producing 365 hp (272 kW) to 385 hp (287 kW) in street form and 400 hp (298 kW) in the Corsa.[1]

A total of 140 examples were produced from 1965 through 1968, plus the Street competition version BA4
