Italian millionairre Renzo Rivolta wanted a car that could rival the likes of Lamborghini and Ferrari, but couldn't find anything on the market to match. So instead, he commissioned his own. Penned by Giorgetto Guigiaro and powered by a Chevrolet Corvette V8 engine, the Grifo was the striking result. By combining Italian style with American muscle, Renzo's Iso company, which started out making refrigerators, created one of the most stunning classics of the 1960s. The Grifo had performance and handling to match its looks, while a 7.0-liter engine was introduced for 1968 giving it 170mph (264km/h) capability. Only high prices and the need for each car to be built by hand restricted production, and although only 504 examples had been built by the time that manufacture ceased in 1974, the Grifo was revered by many.
