Bizzarrini 1900 GT Europa

The 1900 “Europa” was a small GT car produced by Bizzarrini between 1966 and 1969, powered by either an Opel or an Alfa Romeo engine. Only 17 cars of this type were ever made.

Giotto Bizzarrini is a Livornese engineer (actually he was born in Quercianella in 1926) who had worked for both Alfa Romeo and Ferrari before starting his own firm. In 1962 he designed a 3.5 liter V12 engine for Ferrucio Lamborghini which, in its basic layout, is still used today. He kept producing beautiful cars like this one, but never managed to get the recognition of most widely known brands of sport cars.
