16. Iso Grifo
Iso sports cars were the brainchild of Italian industrialist, Renzo Rivolta. After successful ventures in other forms of vehicle production, Rivolta decided to produce a sports car with a powerful U.S.-built engine and homegrown Italian body. The best Iso model was the sublime Grifo. It was an elegant and dramatically styled coupe they introduced in 1964.
Immediately, it became one of the most advanced, fastest and desirable sports coupes on the market. This was a bold claim because, in the middle of the ‘60s in Italy, there was serious competition from heavy hitters like Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini. But the Iso Grifo was more beautiful and faster than anything else.
