DescriptionEdit

"Bold in terms of performance, design, and mechanism. A supercar packing all the dreams of a mature driver."



Even in the world of the supercars, there is no other car maker as unique as Cizeta. Starting in the 1980s, musician Giorgio Moroder, along with Claudio Zampolli, a wealthy exotic car dealer in America, began work on a project that focused on "making a never-before-seen supercar." The name Cizeta was formed from the initials of Zampolli.

The man slated to design the car was Marcello Gandini, who also penned the Lamborghini Countach and Lancia Stratos. The car drew gasps when it was introduced in 1988. The Cizeta V16T's name is based on its engine, a 16-cylinder V-shaped powerplant that was horizontally mounted behind the cockpit. The engine was actually two Lamborghini Uracco V8s coupled together, combined yielding a displacement of 6.0 liters, producing 560 HP. This allowed the wedge-shaped car to reach a top speed of 203 mph, thanks to its exceptional aerodynamic shape and its low curb weight. It was reputed to reach 60 mph in about 4 seconds, while still providing its occupant with a high level of luxury.

The car didn't fare well at the dealerships, with only a handful of them being sold. Part of the problem was its steep $300,000[1] price tag. The company closed its doors in 1995, but they still produced the Cizeta on demand.
