1971 AMC AMX/3 by G.Bizzarrini
Giotto Bizzarrini, of ex-Ferrari fame, was specifically responsible for
making a production worthy AMX/3 out of the show queen AMX/2. What would
have been a challenging build for AMC, was easily handled by Bizzarrini who
was very familiar with race car design and construction, particularly on a
Bizzarrini's final AMC/3 featured the hallmark of sports engineering, a
mid-mounted engine and rear transaxle. The Italian firm Melara developed
the new gearbox while BMW completed final testing on the roadworthy AMX/3.
It seemed AMC was serious about production. From a design standpoint, the
AMC/3 was remarkably similar to Ford's DeTomaso Pantera which debuted just
one day after the AMC/3. Such timely releases made it unclear exactly who
copied who, but in any case, the casual observer can easily mistake the
AMC/3 with a Pantera.
Due to the successful launch, and low price of the Pantera, AMC scrapped
the AMX/3 project. Bizzarrini was ordered to destroy all six cars, which
he, of course, did not.

Feels like a Porsche? Yes. 1969 AMX - /Big Muscle
When the American Motors Corporation (AMC) released the AMX back in 1969
the motoring world didn't know what to make of it. It had two seats like a
sports car, a solid live axle and a raucous V8 like a muscle car, and
styling that could've gone either way. Owner Jimi Day has been a long time
fan of the AMX so when he got the opportunity to construct his own he
pulled out all the stops, went buck-ass wild, and built what is arguably
one of the best AMX's on the planet Earth.
