Cizeta Automobili SRL (Italy) is an automobile manufacturer headquartered in Modena, Italy, founded in the late 1980s by Claudio Zampolli, an Italian automobile engineer and Lamborghini driver, and record producer Giorgio Moroder. The name "Cizeta" comes from the Italian pronunciation of co-founder Claudio Zampolli's initials (C.Z.). Moroder became involved in the project when he took his Lamborghini Countach to Zampolli's garage for service. Their only product, the Cizeta-Moroder V16T, featured a technically advanced 16-cylinder transverse engine. The prototype was the only car to carry the "Cizeta-Moroder" badge, as Giorgio Moroder withdrew from the Cizeta project in 1990. Before the company closed in 1994, only 8 cars were built. Subsequently, in 1999 and 2003, 3 more cars were built (two more coupes and one spider).
