New and updated edition of an extraordinary monographic work. The author retraces the history of Isorivolta, describing in detail the cars and the other vehicles produced, including the groundbreaking Isetta "Bubble Car" and the Iso Grifo, as well as the Lele and the fabulous Fidia. Learn why a company that was virtually unknown in the GT field became the builder of cars that were called "a dream come true" and "the best that money can buy." Hear the men who made these fabulous machines talk about the design, birth and testing of all of Iso’s models. But this book is much more than an in-depth examination of a single company. It also shows how the cars and the men who created and built them were influenced by the competition and the era’s political, social and economic climates. The new edition follows Piero Rivolta’s career to the present day, illustrating his continuous pursuit of excellence in car design, boats and architecture. Lavishly illustrated with rare and unique pictures.

BIZZARRINI: A TECHNICIAN DEVOTED TO MOTOR-RACING - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

Giotto Bizzarrini is recognized as one of history’s greatest engineers. His resume includes numerous legendary Ferraris such as the 250 GTO, the first Lamborghini V12, the Iso Rivolta GT, the mid-engine AMX/3, and numerous sports and GT cars made under his own name. This is the inside story on those machines and many more, as told by the engineer and numerous people who worked with him. The reader will be taken for a wild ride, experiencing the famous Ferrari "Walkout" in 1961, what it was like being the ultimate engineering "hired gun" for GT constructors such as Lamborghini, Iso and ASA, and then getting the inside track on Bizzarrini’s own cars and company. Find out why he considers the Bizzarrini Strada a "second series GTO," the story behind models such as the mid-engine P538, and how his company unraveled, thanks to his endless pursuit for competition victory and getting in bed with the wrong business partners. Supplementing the rich text are numerous period photos that have never been published and appendices with model specifications and chassis numbers.
