Great looking GT. Only cool though, on account of the agricultural engine.

In a fridge all on its own....

Anyone else spotted the styling cues carried over to the 8C?

Thanks Ant

Incredible machine! :ANYWORD:
Old Mr Bizzarrini (what a name!) had a major hand in some other exotica too (250 GTO and Lambos, as well as the Iso Grifo).

Italian design, huuuge chevy engine and one of the coolest named cars ever!! What could be cooler?

Re: Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada

All that power and no power

Sure it looks ok, but that's only half what this car should be. Bet it's hideously overpriced too. These types of car are always uncool. Only for the stupidly rich and bored amongst us. Normal people need not apply.

Re: Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada

Looks great, goes well for its age, bet it sounds lovely even if the engine deserves to be in a truck. Shame about the slushbox, it probably only has two forward gears which is probably why the 0-60 is pants.

Gotta be cool.

Re: Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada

Cool - would be zub-zero if it weren't for the fact it reminds me of a Muria so it cheapens as a copy

Interesting but uncool.

Fussy design, crude engineering. No wonder they didn't sell many. Could have been so much better.

Re: Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada

Its rare and looks like a ferrari, but has a lazy torquey, grumbling V8

Has to be cool.

I wouldn't say it was a poor mans Ferrari. A Dino is a poor mans Ferrari.
