Description

We have here possibly one of the most beautiful coupes of all time. It is a 1967 Iso Grifo GL300, UK Right Hand Drive car. Our car has only had one owner since 1976 and has covered a possibly genuine 58,000 Miles from new. The car is finished in Black with Black leather interior piped with red.
This is a series 1 car with the Automatic gearbox, very very rare in Right Hand Drive Format.
Giotto Bizzarrini established his reputation as a skillful engineer with Alfa Romeo and Ferrari during the early 1960s, and had been largely responsible for developing the celebrated 250 GTO. He also designed Lamborghini's first car, the 350 GT, and his own race car, the Bizzarrini GT.
In 1963 Bizzarrini penned a new masterpiece, the Grifo, which in Italian means Griffin. This is of course the legendary bird which preys on horses, hence an allusion to Iso's desire to conquer Ferrari's throne in the sports car stakes. The Grifo was a worthy challenger, a two seater GT coupe designed by Giugiaro at Berton
