Italian Cars You Haven’t Heard Of: 1991-1995 Cizeta-Moroder V16T

Everything about the Cizeta-Moroder is over the top, glue-sniffing, nuclear-suitcase crazy. The design is by Macello Gandini, who designed the Lamborghini Countach and Miura, as well as dozens of other famous cars. The story goes that when Lamborghini botched Gandini’s design for the Countach replacement, he offered the design to former Lamborghini engineer Claudio Zampolli and Giorgio Moroder. The engine is a 6.0 liter V16, which makes 540 horsepower (not bad for 1991), is mounted transversely in the middle of the car. Supposedly 0-60 acceleration was about 4 seconds and the top speed was 204 miles per hour. Prices were about what you’d expect, something around $300,000 when they were made twenty years ago, and the unofficial reports is that approximately ten were produced.
