History: Developed by Giotto Bizzarrini, most famous for developing the most collectible of all Ferrari’s, the 250 GTO. Bizzarrini was also responsible for developing the chassis and V12 engine for the first Lamborghini and the chassis design for the ISO Rivolta and Grifo. The Bizzarrini 5300 Strada grew out of his work for Iso and was initially known as the Iso A3C.

Production: Of the 149 Bizzarrini A3C’s/A3L’s/Strada’s and GT America’s built, just 3 were Spyders. The first had a 3-part roof. It could be a full coupe, a targa top or a full convertible, as the entire roll bar structure could be totally removed. This original prototype was never fully developed due to chassis flex. The second and third cars were known as 5300 Spyder S.I.’s. The car shown here, the third car built (vin # 0315S) was the most developed of the 3 cars and differed visually from the second car in having wind wings instead of a single glazed side window.

This car took first place in its class when shown at Pebble Beach in 1989. It was displayed again at Pebble Beach in 2005.
