· ISORIVOLTA VISION
Now, with the IsoRivolta Vision Gran Turismo, Zagato closes the circle and takes us back to Milan, where, after World War II, the GT category of motorsport was conceptualized, created, and promoted by four illustrious Milanese figures: Count Giovanni Lurani, journalists Giovanni Canestrini and Corrado Filippini, and gentleman driver Elio Zagato, the father of Andrea, the current CEO of Zagato. This intermediate GT class hosted cars that were halfway between production touring saloons and racing purpose-built barchettas of international motorsport.
Zagato-bodied models – streamlined and lightweight coupes, successful in racing, but also comfortable enough for everyday use – found their natural place in the new GT category, monopolizing it and securing numerous wins. The Zagato IsoRivolta Vision Gran Turismo is the realization of a dream, and designed to race in the virtual world of the Gran Turismo Sport game.
The Zagato IsoRivolta Vision Gran Turismo featured in the video game is built around a bespoke chassis and a Callaway powertrain. Rear wheel drive, it mounts a twin turbo 6.2 liter V8, with a power output of 997 hp and a top speed of 365 km/h (227 mi/h). Thanks to a weight of 1129 kg (2489 lbs), it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mi/h) in 2”7. The gearbox is a ten speed automatic/sequential.
