Iso Grifo For Sale – Soon

More and more collector car connoisseurs have recognized the Iso Grifo, in recent years, as a very special Gran Turismo (GT) that compares more favorably to period GTs from Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini and all other GT manufacturers.

The Grifo is special partially because of its exclusivity, only “insiders” know about it (this is starting to change). It is a beautiful timeless Giugiaro design that performs with the best.

The combination of the vision of Renzo Rivolta, the engineering expertise of several key Iso employees like Pierluigi Raggi, the technical contributions of Giotto Bizzarrini (the engineer in charge of the development of the Ferrari 250 GTO) and the brilliant styling of Giorgetto Giugiaro of Bertone resulted in one of the most admired sports cars of the past fifty years. Nuccio Bertone also played a critical role in the creation of the Iso Grifo.

Nuccio Bertone was so committed to this idea for the next Iso GT that he offered to do the work. Renzo Rivolta saw the wisdom in this suggestion and thus Nuccio Bertone was key in making the Grifo a reality. Bertone even came up with the Grifo name.

Jerry Titus wrote in the “Sports Car Graphic” July 1966 issue,

There’s little doubt, once you’re seated behind the wheel, that the Grifo is a performance GT in every sense of the word. …we rate the Grifo as one of the top GTs in existence. It has some unique and practical features all its own, and the body styling gets our personal vote over all others that can be considered ‘production GTs’.

“Autocar” on April 29, 1966 wrote,

…it (the Grifo) is the ultimate in transport for the enthusiast, a kind of dream car come true. It brings back some of the lost pleasures of motoring and introduces many more new ones.

    Wow, what a tease.

  2. A post from a friend of mine back a few years ago.

    Best Car
    I was fortunate enough back in the mid 80’s to have the chance to work on one of these for a consortium of owners that imported cars. This was one “fast” car!
    Later, a friend of mine bought the car, put a 4 bolt 357 into it with a B&M super charger/FI set up. Oh wow that was one hot ticket. I test drove the car to 140 and ran out of fortitude to go faster. My dear friend took it to 180 and said it still had throttle.
    I would love to own one of these. Things of dreams.

  3. Enough already…
