A rare supercar, the Cizeta-Moroder V16T, a pre-production prototype with chassis number 001, anticipating the release of only nine production cars, will be available for sale in California at RM Sotheby’s in mid-August.
The Cizeta V16T supercar, owned by the project investor, musician Giorgio Moroder and is considered the only supercar that bears his name on the body, was developed by ex-Lamborghini engineer Claudio Zampolli and famous designer Marcello Gandini. The car in the coupe body is equipped with a transverse 16-cylinder engine with a volume of 6.0 liters, has an original appearance and memorable four retractable headlights.
The Cizeta V16T car is the first in the lineup: it was its engineer, designer and composer that was demonstrated at world exhibitions. At the same time, the prototype has a number of differences from the serial copies, which were later produced under the name Cizeta. It has enlarged air intakes, a different rear design, and an original interior.
The mileage of the Cizeta V16T supercar put up for auction has not yet been announced. However, it is noted that the car was stored only in closed rooms, and in 2018 it underwent a complete restoration. The price for the rare lot has not yet been announced.
