Chassis #: B0207
After working with Alfa Romeo and Ferrari on the development of their cars, Giotto Bizzarrini founded his own company, Autostar, in Livorno, Italy, in 1962. A year later he worked with Renzo Rivolta, producing the Iso Rivolta and Iso Grifo A3/C models, before producing cars under his own name beginning in 1964. The first Bizzarrini-built A3/C prototype was shown at the Turin Auto Salon in 1963 wearing a riveted aluminum body by Piero Drogo at Sports Car Modena. The model took part in many races, including the 12 Hours of Sebring, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Nurburgring 1000 km.
This A3/C competed at the highest level in Europe, coming in 14th overall and 4th in class at Le Mans, 3rd in class at the Paris 1000 km, and 2nd at the Monza 1000 km. Its current owner has raced the car since 1974 in various historic championships, often finishing in the top three.
