The Cizeta V16T or Cizeta-Moroder V16T was built and produced by Cizeta Automobili and is one of the Supercars that was featured on Gran Turismo 4. It is also featured on the PSP incarnation of Gran Turismo. It also appears in Gran Turismo 5. While not obtainable from first-hand dealers, it can be given to players as a reward (Unless its the PSP version). The V16T reappears in Gran Turismo 6 as a fully-detailed Premium model with a visible interior.

DescriptionEdit

"Bold in terms of performance, design, and mechanism. A supercar packing all the dreams of a mature driver."


Even in the world of the supercars, there is no other car maker as unique as Cizeta. Starting in the 1980s, musician Giorgio Moroder, along with Claudio Zampolli, a wealthy exotic car dealer in America, began work on a project that focused on "making a never-before-seen supercar." The name Cizeta was formed from the initials of Zampolli.

The man slated to design the car was Marcello Gandini, who also penned the Lamborghini Countach and Lancia Stratos. The car drew gasps when it was introduced in 1988. The Cizeta V16T's name is based on its engine, a 16-cylinder V-shaped powerplant that was horizontally mounted behind the cockpit. The engine was actually two Lamborghini Uracco V8s coupled together, combining a displacement of 6.0 liters. It produced 560 HP. This allowed the wedge-shaped car to reach a top speed of 203 mph, thanks to its exceptional aerodynamic shape and its low curb weight. It was reputed to reach 60 mph in about 4 seconds, while still providing its occupant with a high level of luxury.

The car didn't fare well at the dealerships, with only a handful of them being sold. Part of the problem was its steep $300,000 price tag. The company closed its doors in 1995, but they still produced the Cizeta on demand.

TriviaEdit

  • This car was the first Post-War car with a 16-cylinder engine (The Bugatti Veyron being the second with a W16).
  • The V16T was built from 1991-1995 yet only 30 were built, which resulted in a high price tag for the car. However, the production of the V16T continued in 2006.
  • The Sultan of Brunei owns two of these cars.
  • The engine isn't a pure V16; instead, it was formed out of two separate flat-plane V8 engines joined by one crankshaft.
  • Giorgio Moroder, the car logo's designer, doesn't have an automotive background at all. He's actually an electronic dance and synth music producer.
