Should be able to get to 60 at least a second faster than estimated here with that power

Yes, 327. Just typed it in liters zero, so it didn't convert correctly to cubics.

@ Mental: According to the specs, this one has a 330 C.I. V8, I'm sure you meant 327. Too late for it to be a Chrysler 330 Hemi, too early for it to be a Ford 5.4.

I wonder this car hasn't already been added. Iso Grifo - just a legend.

Amazingly, firstly Italian company Iso was producing fridges, LOL, then in 50-ties scooters, and then legendary Isetta bubblecar, later were produced by BMW. But in 1962 Renzo Rivolta decided to create a luxury 2+2 coupe - Iso Rivolta. Technically - Corvette's brutal power, design - Bertone's masterpiece. A great mixture.

Then there was another model - Grifo. The car was created to kill Ferrari (curiously, the mythological beast griffin, the car is named for, eats horses on breakfast, Ferrari's symbol). And on paper the Grifo has to do. Big American power and brilliant Italian body, I just love. But unfortunately, this car didn't sell well, because "this car doesn't have pure Italian runers"... that's a shame.. such a great potential was...

The several mods of Grifo. Series 1: GM V8 327 Small Block - 300-360 hp; GM V8 427 Big Block - 400 hp; Series 2: Ford Cleveland - 330 hp. The total numbers of all produced units is only about 470 units...

Tech data for GL350: Top speed - 259 kph; 0-80 kph - 5.7; 0-100 - 7.5; 0-60 mph - 7.4; 0-100 mph - 16.9 sec; 1/4 mile - 14.9; 1 km - 27.1 sec.

Great rare Italian exotic.
