ISO GRIFO

2-seater coupé.

Stunning Bizzarini-designed supercar with American engines, all GM except 5.7-litre Ford 'Cleveland' for last two years. Platform-type chassis, automatic or manual transmission, four-wheel discs, and De Dion rear suspension. Rust-prone, like all hand-built Italians of the period, but fast, rugged, and definitely 'macho'. 400bhp 7-litre was rarest derivative (90 biult), but could do 180mph, the said.
