Many times when a company releases concept sketches and a few details about a new supercar, we have to take our excitement with a grain of salt. The unfortunate part is that a lot of the time the cars don’t get much further than a few drawings and dreams. That’s why we can truly get excited when pictures of the Bizzarrini P538 ’s chassis in production.
Back in May we posted the information and sketches, but now we can see that there is a real car in production. Actually the legendary car builder is working on four racers for testing this year. The P538 will be based on the Arbitrage GT and utilize a GM sourced LS7 V8 that will be tuned by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. The mid-mounted engine will produce a minimum 500 hp, but Bizzarrini says that the P538 will have the option of going as high as 1000 hp. This is all wrapped in carbon fiber for a total weight of around 1760 lbs. With that kind of power and weight, this is definitely a car we can now fully be excited about.
