An Iso Grifo GL 365 (above) will be one of 10 classics to feature in ‘The Italian Berlinettas’, the first class announced for this summer’s London Concours.

The event’s fifth edition returns to the Honourable Artillery Company HQ in the British capital and adds an extra day for 2021, taking place from 8-10 June.

This class for some of the great Italian berlinettas of the ’60s is one of 11 classes and features at the London Concours.

While the Iso was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro at Bertone, it will be joined in London by Zagato’s Lancia Flaminia Super Sport, plus a Ferrari 275GTB6/C that’s one of just two to have a lightweight alloy body, a six-carburettor engine, a torque tube, factory roll bar and a factory-fitted outside filler.

“As much as our event is about the world of rare vehicles, it’s also about style and luxury; it’s a taste of La Dolce Vita. And really no other era or locale of car design sums up that feeling quite like the heyday of Italian sports car design in the ‘60s,” said London Concours Director, Andrew Evans.

“That’s why we feel it’s worthy of its own celebration, located among our event inside one of London’s most beautiful hidden venues”.

Tickets are available now and can only be bought in advance, with numbers limited to permit social distancing.
