1965 Iso A3C

When it comes to classic sports cars from the 1960s, there are plenty to choose from. From England, big Grand Tourers like the Jaguar E-Type and Aston Martin DBs established a trend of luxurious inline-6 motors. From Germany, the Mercedes-Benz 300SL was still a classic though it was an older design. But the Italians had many to choose from; Fiat, Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini were all producing memorable GT cars. There were also boutique designers and producers such as Iso and Bizzarrini, who combined forces to produce one of the greatest GT racing cars of all time; the A3C. While the Ferrari 250 is arguably the best recognized, most successful and most valuable in its many configurations, the few Iso A3Cs that were produced are no slouches:

Year: 1965

Iso A3C

1965 Competition, completely restored , absolute top condition.

Not much information is offered, but then if you're in this market you likely know what you're looking at. While a top condition Bizzarrini 5300GT would bring around $700,000 these days, the A3C is a more expensive beast entirely. The combination of ex-Ferrari styling and American muscle proved very successful at Le Mans, with the A3Cs winning its class in 1964 and 1965. Drop dead gorgeous looks and that history mean this is a truly valuable car - likely well in excess of a million dollars in current condition. That's well shy of Ferrari 250 prices, but this car is easily as special as those Ferraris and represents a rare opportunity to own one of the most unique pieces of Italian GT racing history.
