Iso was a motorcycle maker, which in 1953 started at the post-war period of privation with the first bubble cars like the ‘Isetta’, which was made under special agreement in Germany (BMW), France (VELAM), Spain (Borgward-Iso), and Brazil (Iso-Romi).
After 1955 (the year an Isetta won its class in the Mille Miglia race) the firm stopped making cars until 1962 when it came up with a design as far removed from a bubble car as possible, the Rivolta! It was a four-seater GT with a 5.4-litre Chevrolet engine. This specific car was acquired by the Museum through auction in Great Britain.
