The Manta was one of Giorgetto Giugiaro’s first designs as an independent consultant.

It is one of the first cars the world to use a triple seat arrangement, the idea was copied from a Ferrari 365 prototype built in 1965 and it was more popularly revived with the mighty McLaren F1.

With a Chevrolet V8 engine this car has a rare design a bold simplicity. It was built on the chassis of a Bizzarrini’s racing prototype which took part in the 24 Hours at Le Mans in 1967.
