Bizzarrini 5300 GT Corsa Revival Edition Named ‘Best Continuation Car’ by Robb Report

The prestigious Robb Report has named the Bizzarrini 5300 GT Corsa Revival as the Best Continuation Car in its esteemed 2024 Annual Best of the Best Awards. Celebrating 36 years, the Best of the Best awards have become a hallmark of luxury, recognizing exceptional achievements across 16 categories including fashion, cars, yachts, art, design, food, wine, and philanthropy.



The Bizzarrini 5300 GT Corsa Revival captured the judges’ admiration for its meticulous attention to detail and masterful craftsmanship, echoing the spirit of the original Bizzarrini that triumphed in its class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1965. This award underscores Bizzarrini's dedication to blending historical reverence with modern engineering precision.


Simon Busby, Chief Marketing Officer of Bizzarrini, expressed his gratitude, stating, “There’s a huge amount of competition in this class, so it’s a real honor to receive the award from Robb Report for Best Continuation Car. This recognition is a testament to our commitment to preserving automotive heritage whilst integrating modern precision. Our team has worked tirelessly to ensure every detail reflects the timeless elegance and blistering performance of the original, and we are thrilled that our dedication has been acknowledged in this way.”


The timing of this accolade coincides with the culmination of the Corsa Revival build program, which saw the completion of 24 meticulously crafted cars. Each vehicle in this series boasts a lightweight single-piece composite body over a steel frame, ensuring both authenticity and performance. The interior features two seats protected by a comprehensive six-point roll cage and a safety fuel cell, adhering to FIA Appendix K regulations. The front-mid engine layout, coupled with independent rear suspension and period-specific disc brakes, supports a formidable 5,300 cc V8 engine that produces over 400 horsepower, rivaling the power-to-weight ratio of contemporary supercars.


The Corsa Revival program initiated 24 months ago, signifies Bizzarrini’s ongoing commitment to automotive excellence. As this project concludes, the focus shifts to the development of the all-new Giotto hypercar, designed by the legendary Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio at GFG Style in Turin, Italy. This new venture rekindles a collaboration first established 60 years ago when a young Giorgetto, working at Bertone, contributed to the design of the original Bizzarrini 5300 GT.
