Zagato IsoRilvolta GTZ: the Latest Italian Take on the Corvette

If the shape and name are familiar to you, it’s no mistake. This Iso Rivolta GTZ is a modern take on the Iso Rivolta A3 from 1963.

And Zagato, whose coach building expertise has been entrusted with this project, has done well. Based, according to the company, on the race car from the early 60s, not necessarily the streetcar that followed shortly thereafter, the design follows the classic lines of the grand tourer.

Like its forebear, the Rivolta mates Italian coachbuilding with an American drivetrain. As the front-engine layout may have suggested, this is based on the C7 Z06 drivetrain.

Specs on the IsoRivolta GTZ haven’t been revealed yet, but they are saying it has a 6.8-liter supercharged engine. That may mean more power than the 6.2-liter, 650 hp version in the Z06.

An all-carbon-fiber body will also likely mean a lower curb weight than the Z06’s 3,500 lbs.

A price has not been mentioned either. We would wager that it will be large since Zagato is only building 19 of these neoclassical bad boys. Apparently it’s not so large that it scares away customers, though, since 9 of them are already spoken for.
