Iso Lele - 1969-1979

Iso, originally a refrigerator manufacturer, turned to motor scooters after world war ii, then to bubble cars like the isetta and finally to fullscale autos powered by chevrolet v8 engines. The first example of the latter was the rivolta, introduced in late 1962. It was replaced by the lele, although the two actually overlapped. The lele was one of the last two iso models.

About vehicle
Fast fastback coupe this 2 + 2 fastback coupe was styled by bertone, which also built the body on the rivolta platform. A long hood and cut-off tail, concealed horizontal dual headlights, blackened grille, side louvers and lots of glass characterized the model. The original engine was a 35o-cu.-in. Chevy v8, although a bigger one could be ordered. A ford cleveland 351-cu.-in. V8 became standard in 1973. A lele with this or another ford engine (such as the bigger cobra let) was called a sport. production ends iso switched to ford engines because it needed a ford-cosworth v8 engine for its ill-starred plunge into formula one racing. And there was a special edition of the lele called the marlboro because the cigarette company backed this venture. Iso fell into bankruptcy in 1975, but a few more leles were made before all production halted by 1980. Total output of the lele was only 317.
A fastback sports coupe called the lele was one of the last two iso automobiles in production.
