Description

First registration 12.1964 Swiss road registration with veteran entry The Iso Rivolta 300 is a luxurious coupe developed in 1962 by Iso Automotoveicoli S.p.A. in Bresso, a suburb of Milan. The intention of entrepreneur Renzo Rivolta, together with former Ferrari engineer Giotto Bizzarrini, was to create a Gran Turismo car in the original sense of the word (“great journey”). For racing, however, the Iso Rivolta 300 was not homologated as a “GT” (Gran Turismo), but as a touring car. Between 1962 and 1970, 792 Bertone coupes were built, with designations varying between GT Coupé, IR 300/340 or just Iso-Rivolta. According to the will of its designers, the car should be characterized by a powerful engine, a high quality chassis and an elegant body. The engine and transmission of the Iso Rivolta 300 were not the car’s own designs, but large-series units from General Motors and BorgWarner respectively. The V8 cylinder with 5.4 liters displacement corresponds to that of the Chevrolet Corvette. The four-speed transmission is fully synchronized and is shifted with a center shift lever. The front wheels of the Iso Rivolta 300 are suspended on double wishbones of different lengths with anti-roll bars. In the rear, the car has a de-dion axle with wading linkage (for precise axle lateral control) and double trailing arms. Front and rear suspensions have coil springs and hydraulic telescopic shock absorbers. The sleek body was created by Bertone, a coupe with a wheelbase of 270 cm, which provides ample space for four to five people. The luxurious interior is equipped with cowhide leather at extra cost. The arrangement of the steering wheel, gearshift, switches and pedals is considered exemplary, with the distance from brake pedal to accelerator pedal chosen to allow easy downshifting with “intermediate throttle”. This Iso Rivolta GT 300 originated in Portugal and was in the same ownership there for well over 30 years before finding its way to Switzerland via Austria. A few years ago the car was completely restored and is in very nice top collector condition.
