Only Nine Original Pieces Were Initially Made

It is not always easy to live in the shadows of a strong brand that fades away without as much noise as it is supposed to garner. The Cizeta V16T was not your ordinary car and never lived its life by any conventional standards.

It only confirmed with the legal ones but went our to curve a life of its own. Memories and traces of this beautifully built car still linger.

Although primarily produced for the Cizeta V16T was stopped, you can still place an order and have one built. A production car was last made in 2003 through an order placed by a Japanese buyer. It was a lovely convertible.

In total, only nine examples of this creatively unique car were built in the initial production run. The engine had been plucked from the powerful Lamborghini Urraco P300. In design, this outstanding piece work borrowed heavily from the Lamborghini Diablo.

The life and times of the Cizeta have quite a number of controversies going. This notwithstanding, it still remains a fascinating car that lovers of opaquely unique objects would love to have.

The truth of the matter is that it is not always easy to pull an idea that has been lying around and work it up to work that can be appreciated. The Cizeta V16T is no doubt able to do that time and again.
