Giotto Bizzarrini’s First Car, The Macchinetta, to Make Appearance at Pebble Beach

Giotto Bizzarrini was an Italian automobile engineer for Ferrari. He received his engineering degree from the University of Pisa in 1953, and for his thesis, he completely redesigned a used Fiat Topolino. He modified the engine and then relocated it in the chassis for better handling. After graduating, he worked briefly for Alfa Romeo, and in 1957 went to Ferrari, where he built the most successful racing series the company ever had.
