The Iso Rivolta GTZ represents Zagato’s Tribute to Iso, which in the 1960s and 70s carved out a prominent place in automotive history with its GT cars.
Energy, Heritage, Prestige, Passion, these are the core values that Zagato wants to communicate through the Neoclassic and Timeless design of this car.
The wave design of the GTZ side is the key junction between present and past, taking that inspiration from the Iso A3 shape, which served for many iconic models over a long period. Officially it is inspired by the A3 “Berlinetta Stradale”, specially made for the French singer, and actor, Johnny Hallyday, stage name of Jean-Philippe Smet.
Same powerful heart: an American V8 engine by Corvette like in the original A3. The V8 Supercharged 6.2 litres allows it to be consistent with the historical partnership between Iso Rivolta and General Motors. As Renzo Rivolta started in the 60s: “We chose General Motors V8 engines for all our GT cars, because they go faster and don’t break when you close the hood.”
This car is dedicated to more than 4500 Iso Rivolta Club Members and Owners, who well know the glorious A3 model. Through raw power and passionate design, Iso Rivolta GTZ allows to escape the mundane and enter the extreme.
The flowing fender, the raked fastback, together with a curved windscreen and the side air vents, which extend the front profile, create a perfect elegant and proportioned car.
