Iso Rivolta
Isothermos started making refrigeration units in Genoa in 1939, but Renzo Rivolta took the company to Bresso in 1942. In 1948 Iso started to build motorcycles and variants of these including Furetto, Isoscooter,' Isocarro, Isomoto and Isosport. At the 1953 Turin show the 'Isetta' was shown, a 3-wheeled bubble car' with a scooter engine. In 1954 the Isetta was licensed to Germany (BMW Isetta), France (VELAM Isetta), Brazil and Britain. Faster cars came in 1962 when Renzo Rivolta teamed up with Bizzarrini, Giugiaro, and Bertone and Chevrolet V8 was the source of this GT car. This formula continued with later Ford V8 cars. In 1973 Iso Rivolta passed from the Rivolta family into an American financial company and faded away.
