When Cizeta-Moroder first introduced the V16T in 1988, it had the potential to become the next big thing in the world of supercars. The car had it all, a celebrity endorsement, an Italian background, famous constructors, an exotic name, and the latest technology. The main feature of this obscure beast was its monstrous V16 engine.
It consisted of two flat-plane crank V8 units they mounted transversely behind the cabin. The V16 engine had six liters of displacement and delivered 560 HP, which was a fantastic number for the late ’80s. The performance was equally impressive with a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of just four seconds and a top speed of over 200 mph.
Even today, those numbers draw attention from the supercar crowd. The base list price was close to $300,000. However, they stopped the production at just 20 cars, which is why they are a rare sight today.
