This is one of the rarest and most luxurious Sporting Four Door Saloons available. It is an incredibly rare 1972 Iso Fidia, Left Hand Drive, Automatic, and UK Registered.

Bubblecar manufacturer Iso joined the ranks of supercar constructors in 1962 with the launch of the Giotto Bizzarrini-designed Rivolta coupé at the Turin Motor Show. Styled at Carrozzeria Bertone by Giorgetto Giugiaro, Iso's first supercar set the pattern for those that followed: Bizzarrini-designed chassis, Bertone coachwork and Chevrolet engines, though for the long-wheelbase Fidia four-door saloon Iso turned to Carrozzeria Ghia where it was styled by new recruit Giugiaro. Longer in the wheelbase by approximately 150mm, the Fidia was a more practical proposition that the two-door Rivolta on which it was based. Chevrolet engines of 5.4 or 5.7 litres were fitted initially while the final version came with a 5.8-litre Ford V8 under the bonnet. High development costs and a most luxurious specification resulted in the hand-built Fidia costing more than a Rolls-Royce. In total, only 192 were made between 1968 and 1974 when production of all Iso models ceased. John Lennon was one of the Fidia's high-profile celebrity owners, purchasing the second car built and the first with right-hand drive.

Our car is finished in a typical Seventies shade of Metallic Bronze with Cream leather interior. It is a Chevrolet V8 powered example with Automatic Gearbox. It is Uk Registered and drives very well indeed. The bodywork is very nice without being perfect and the interior is the original. A great driving useable example which can be improved upon or used as you choose, finished in a superb colour it is ready for its next owner.
