Cizeta V16T spotted in Los Angeles, California

Details on This Cizeta V16T:

  • Location
    Los Angeles, California
  • Description
    YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME! After over 10 years of hiding away from public an ultra-rare Cizeta V16T finally came out of the shadows!!! Never did anyone think this would happen but after spending just over 1 1/2 years at Canepa Motorsport for repairs the monstrous V16 engine was able to run again like brand new and made its appearance in L.A. This specific model is the first ever prototype (#001) which was at the 1988 Geneva motor show and was being driven by CEO of Auto Storage vault underneath Rodeo Drive.

Flat 12, eh? I'd love to hear the noise of that, but then again, I hope it'd compliment the noise of a straight 8.

There has never been a Cizeta category until a few weeks ago right after I messaged Gregg to include this car. A black V16T is at the Marconi museum in Tustin, CA which was formerly owned by Sultan of Brunei and had a Flat 12 engine swap.

Has there always been a Cizeta category on ES? Or was it created just for this picture? IT'S THE ONLY ONE IN THERE. Insane spot, congrats King! L/F

Yeah I remember this car from Gran Turismo 4 and loved the exhaust note! It's too bad he never floored it but a lot of you might also remember when the U.S. government seized the red V16T back in 2009-That was Claudio Zampolli's personal car as well.

Yes you can still buy a new one but it just needs some time due to special order only.

Very nice. But I thought I heard that Cizeta still builds to order?

Also, only 10 V16Ts are in existence and just four are able to drive according to the CEO. He was really nice and answered a lot of questions plus this car is the only one which bears Giorgio Moroder's name (one of the founders) on it. It's not a real V16 engine but two Lamborghini Urraco V8s put together but holy cr*p this is a spot of a lifetime.
