The beautiful Bizzarrini A3/C No. 0222

Ousted from a successful career as a chief engineer at Ferrari, Giotto Bizzarrini went off to build his own racing machines to compete on the international stage. Powered by a monstrous small block V8, this very car — Bizzarrini A3/C No. 0222 — would go on to win its class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1965.

Here’s a cool video we came across by Petrolicious.  Bruce Meyer, the owner of this remarkable machine talks about the car, it sounds awesome, looks awesome, it’s one very cool car.

Though the A3/Cs were never consistently competitive, they would prove their potency in 1965, when French drivers Régis Fraissinet and Jean de Mortemart took the car to an impressive 9th overall at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and first in its class.
