Macchinetta Berlinetta
Coachwork: Giotto Bizzarrini
This is the first car to be built by Giotto Bizzarrini himself in 1953 while studying mechanical engineering at the University of Pisa. This streamlined Berlinetta has a Fiat 500 Topolino chassis and drivetrain with an aluminum body formed over a fragile steel frame. Interestingly, although the engine has a slightly smaller capacity than the standard 500 unit, Bizzarrrini fitted a Siata high-performance cylinder head with twin carburetors boosting the performance to around 30 bhp - not too shabby for a small car. The 500 Macchinetta severed as Giotto Bizzarrini's graduation thesis, it was highly commended by his professors, and it kick-started his career. After graduating, Bizzarrini drove his car to a job interview at Ferrari and after seeing his Macchinetta, Enzo Ferrari hired him on the spot.
