Watch This Ultra-Rare $1 Million Car Get Detailed Beautifully
Larry Kosilla is no stranger to detailing expensive and unique cars. He’s done everything from a Formula One car to a classic McLaren F1 GTR LT. As insane as it sounds, getting his hands on a one-of-six Bizzarrini P538 isn’t too surprising. It’s the setting that blows me away.
Sure, the Bizarrini P538 story is a weird one. The car was created by Giotto Bizzarini, who’s most famous for his work as the chief engineer of Ferraris like the 250 GTO. Bizzarini left the Maranello firm to start Scuderia Bizzarini. It only lasted for five years, but Scuderia Bizzarini built beautiful cars like this rear-engined, Chevy-powered P538. Details on production are scarce and records basically don’t exist, but there were at least four originally built: two Chevy-powered V-8 cars and two Lamborghini-powered V-12 cars.
So this Bizzarini, weird as it may be, isn’t even close to the wildest thing about Kosilla’s newest video. His detailing company, AMMO NYC, was called in to work on a collection of weird and rare cars set for sale. Of the four known P538s, this hidden collection houses two. It also has scores of other expensive and weird cars. All of them have sat for at least 30 years.
To find the Bizzarini, Kosilla had to wade through stacks of random automotive set pieces. There’s a Pinto and a Diablo, a Superbird and a GT40. An M1, a dozen classic Ferraris, and just about every other interesting thing you’d expect from a multimillion-dollar collection frozen in amber sometime around 1990. Kosilla had to climb under a one-of-two prototype Oldsmobile Aurora GTS-1 race car in front of the P538. I didn’t even know that existed; to see it caked in dust in the world’s biggest time capsule is mind-bending.
Speaking of mind-bending, the speed of which Kosilla and his team turn the P538 into a clean, polished car ready for sale is wicked. Working in a confined space pressed up against a rare, classic Noble, he’s able to get three decades of dust and grime off the P538. The seats are conditioned, the interior is steamed, and the engine is cleared of its dust. The wheels and tires look immaculate by the end, while the bright red paint shines under the harsh portable lighting.
It’s a true testament to how much a good detail can do to save a car. And the good news is that most of these cars are going to be saved, too, as the owner is prepping most of them for sale. There’s no total car amount listed, but Kosilla’s first video covers just one of dozens of cars in one of the collection’s three buildings. Luckily, more videos are on the way.
