When it comes to incredible engineering, Italy has produced some of the most talented automotive engineers. One of Italy’s greatest engineers was Giotto Bizzarrini. After working for companies like Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, and Lamborghini, Giotto went on to build his own brand. This 1971 Bizzarrini 1900 Europa Spyder was one of the last cars to be built before the company went bankrupt. This rare Italian was recently discovered in an old garage in France. It is now for sale and can be found here on eBay.
The Europa was Bizzarrini’s attempt to build a small sports car that would appeal to a broader market. The design was initially created for Opel, but Opel opted to use an in house design for what went on to be the Opel GT. Bizzarrini went on to produce a small handful of Europas after the deal fell through. This one was manufactured in 1969, but not put together until 1971. No one knows exactly how many of these were built, but most estimates are around 20 or less.
This one has obviously been parked in this garage for who knows how long. It looks complete, but needs a serious cleaning to fully evaluate its current condition. The seller’s attempt to blur out the background makes it difficult to evaluate the condition of the whole car, but it makes us wonder what else is hiding in there. If you are looking for a super rare and unique sports car, this could be an amazing opportunity, but getting it from France could be a challenge.
