Iso Grifo

Iso of Italy began its car manufacturing career in the mid-1950s producing the Isetta bubble cars (also built under licence by BMW), but in 1962 they decided to enter the high-class GT car market with the Rivolta. In many ways this cleanly styled four-seater coupe was an Italian Gordon Keeble featuring a similar box-section frame with Dedion rear suspension and a Bertone Bertone -built steel body. Like the Keeble, it had a Corvette V-eight engine under the bonnet, so performance was impressive: it had a top speed of 140 mph (225 kph) with the manual gearbox.
