Giotto Bizzarrini, one of the world's most talented automotive engineers, was instrumental in the development of the immortal Ferrari 250 GTO, the pioneering mid-engined ATS 2500 GT, the Ferrari 250 "Breadvan", the legendary Lamborghini V12 engine and also the ISO Grifo, from which the Bizzarrini 5300 GT and A3/C models were developed.
The Bizzarrini name is attributed to a number of models including the 5300 GT Stradale, the Le Mans class-winning A3/C, the 1900 GT Europa, the mid-engined P538 and its descendant the Manta.
The return of the Bizzarrini marque is rich with possibility and Pegasus intends to honour the brand’s heritage while also engaging with a new generation. Tradition and technology will align to write new chapters in the ongoing Bizzarrini story.
Rezam M Alroumi is the Group CEO of Alroumi Group Holdings, a multinational conglomerate with an actively managed portfolio of global investment operations across three continents, and the Chairman of The Pegasus Group. He is the eldest son of Mohammed Y Alroumi, founder of Alroumi group and descendent of one of the region’s wealthiest merchant families whose wealth originated from Pearl trading since the 18th century. Mr Alroumi started his career in investment and equities in the Kuwait Public Institution for Social Security, where he developed a strong global management, investment and real estate acumen which led him to establish Adeem Investments, one of the biggest investment and Asset Management companies in the entire region with diversified activities covering the Middle East, Europe and North Africa, and with total Assets exceeding USD 1 Billion.
In 2007, Mr Alroumi’s passion for luxury automotive led him to the UK, and international headlines were made when he led a group of local and international investors to purchase the majority stake in Aston Martin Lagonda during what was considered a critical period in the history of the prestigious British manufacturer. During a decade of business turnaround, and with unflinching determination, Mr Alroumi saw the need to rebuild an entire new company in a way that is inspired by the brand’s history, culture and values. Continuing to lead on the brand’s true heritage, Mr Alroumi blazed the path for the iconic British manufacturer through a robust, strategic transformation that translated and repositioned the brand back to its rightful historic stature.
In an era of relentless change, Mr Alroumi has the mindset and business leadership that is imperative for the 21st century. His belief that beauty is worth creating, celebrating and preserving drives his unwavering passion to revive and ensure that the heritage of iconic brands remains relevant in today’s world, and for future generations to come.
