This Rivolta is the classy Italian you didn’t know you needed in your life

For almost 40 years Iso created fantastic motorbikes and cars. Perhaps most famous for its tiny Isetta and the pretty Grifo, this 1965 Rivolta IR 300 GT coming up for auction with Ivoire Troyes is a perfect snap-shot of 60s Italian styling.

Named after the company chairman Renzo Rivolta, the 300 was sketched by Giorgetto Giugiaro and designed by Bertone. Renzo’s colleague and former Ferrari engineer, Giotto Bizzarrini, developed the chassis, and the powertrain was a 5.4 litre Chevy small block with 300bhp.

Chassis 410-475 was displayed at the 1965 Turin Motorshow and is a matching numbers car with engine number "683 F12125P”. Finished in its original paint colour of Volpe Argentata Metallizzato, it is one of 797 examples produced of which less than half are still believed to be in existence. Now is your chance to make a bid at the 'Culture POP' sale with Ivoire Troyes on September 4th.

While this is a perfect GT car, for those who want to take things a step further, this car is eligible for Le Mans Classic. And if the sky is the limit, then this is the only known Iso Rivolta with an altimeter!

The tempting guide price of 40,000-60,000 Euros suggests that you could have this rare Italian classic in your garage for a fraction of the costs of other luxurious GT cars of the 60s. In a world where individuality comes at a high price, this is a great opportunity to stand out and its American internals mean maintenance need not be eye watering, like servicing a V12 Colombo for example!

Check out the full listing for the Iso Rivolta IR 300 GT in the upcoming, ‘Culture POP’ Ivoire Troyes auction on September 4th.
