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. Built virtually using realistic volume and base measurements, the ISO Rivolta Zagato Vision Gran Turismo evokes a fierce attitude and raw emotion through its appealing coachwork proportions: low centre-point of gravity, voluptuous fenders and sleek, elegant lines.
Historically, ISO Rivolta became famous among sophisticated, international clients in the 1960s and 70s for its innovative approach in marrying Italian design with an American power train, 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, 1,000 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, competing successfully in the hands of legendary professional drivers Jacky Ickx, Gjis Van Lennep and Arturo Merzario, to name a few.
Zagato, a design atelier and coachbuilder with 98 years of experience has built automobile bodies for most of the world's famous automotive brands and is renowned for creating iconic, competitive sports cars in limited series. 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 honour ISO Rivolta’s racing heritage and passion for performance. Once again the Griffin will compete against the Prancing Horse, Raging Bull and other automotive titans of today, this time in the virtual reality of Gran Turismo.
