Inspired by the aerodynamic designs of great prototype endurance race cars, the ISO Rivolta Zagato Vision Gran Turismo is a contemporary gentleman driver’s sports car designed specifically to compete at the highest international levels. Virtually-built using realistic volume and base measurements, the ISO Rivolta Zagato Vision Gran Turismo evokes a fierce attitude and raw emotion through its sensorial coachwork proportions: low center point of gravity, voluptuous fenders and sleek, elegant lines.
Historically, ISO Rivolta became famous among sophisticated, international clients in the 1960s and 1970s for its innovative approach in marrying Italian design with an American powertrain, thus producing excellent and reliable performance cars. These classic Iso sports and racing cars participated in some of the world’s greatest sports car competitions, such as the 12 Hours of Sebring, 1000 km of Nurburgring, and 24 Hours of Le Mans. The marque bearing the mythological Griffin logo also joined Formula 1 in the early 1970s through a partnership with Marlboro, and successfully competed at the hand of legendary professional drivers Jacky Ickx, Gjis Van Lennep and Arturo Merzario, to name a few.
Zagato, a design atelier with 98 years of experience, has collaborated with many famous automotive brands and is renowned for creating iconic, competitive sports cars in limited numbers. Zagato Vice President of Design Nori Harada pays tribute to ISO Rivolta with the creation of the new ISO Rivolta Zagato Vision Gran Turismo to honor ISO Rivolta’s racing heritage and passion for performance. Once again the Griffin will compete against the Ferrari, Lamborghini and other motorsports titans, this time in the virtual world of Gran Turismo.
