Default Iso Rivolta "Breadvan"

Would you really want a car styled the way it is, and the asking price for it ? I honestly think that they ran out of ideas regarding the rear window treatment - shades of Ssang Yong (?) Stavric ? I am afraid so. Regards Styria

I think they are confused Bizzarini made they Ferrari 250 breadvan and the 250 GTO . Then Iso Rivolta only in 1964 developing only 3 models. Then his own cars which this is and not a Iso Rivolta. I have quiet a few books on both. movie fact Bizzarini 5300Gt is seen in police garage at start of Steve McQueen Movie Bullit it was his race car. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bizzarrini http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_29986-B...rada-1966.html

I have to agree that the styling is unresolved - quite sadly so.

It had nothing to do with styling Bizzarini did the original Ferrari 250 bread van and this as early Aerodynamic work . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrari...T_SWB_Breadvan

It still leaves the styling unresolved - sorry Motec: it's not pretty.

No its not but styling had nothing to do with the concept. So criticising design that wasn't for looks is pointless. It was a dead end in racing. So is no more no less than a bookend in motorsport. Much like Bugatti Tank car's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bugatti_Type_32 http://www.supercars.net/cars/2706.html . Neither was attractive. History is strewn with concepts to reduce drag before wind tunnels refined and expanded understanding. Then killed design in chase for aero. Even Gurney Nutting with Bentley Blue Train it was one of his least attractive designs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J_Gurne...%26_Co_Limited
