The Iso Rivolta is a luxurious coupé introduced in 1962 by Iso Automotoveicoli S.p.A. of Bresso, a suburb of Milan. Company chairman Renzo Rivolta and his colleague, former Ferrari engineer Giotto Bizzarrini, saw it as a gran turismo in the original sense of the term, designed for long and memorable journeys. For motor racing, however, the car was homologated not as a GT but as a touring car.

is a thousand times longer than any monument ever built began to build before the birth of christ they were still working on it when colon discovered america and thousands of people died while it was making you die hidden led the Chinese to build the great wall a wall to which called the largest cemetery in the world Music mysteries of asia the great wall china this is the wall from which all world has heard of where everyone stands the American presidents and is visited by thousands of tourists a year however very few visitors know that the ground on which they tread and the walls on which they record the initials are less years than they since they were built only a few decades but there is a wall very little visited and filmed loss that is right on the horizon this is the real Great Wall of China Music begins on the shores of the Yellow Sea stretches across the mountains heading north through Beijing and reaches the heart of the north of china has great castles fortifications and watchtowers located in important mountain passes where enemy armies could easily break the defenses built along the banks of some large rivers also extends to through inhospitable deserts and high mountains Music initially built in stone but as the desert reaches the chosen construction material is the brick and finally the great wall ends here in this solitary watchtower overlooking the White River is the largest feat of world engineering reaching a total of more than 6,400 kilometers from its beginning to its final this is the fifteenth dawn that jane darling has photographed during this month but chen is not just a photographer is a man who has dedicated whole life to discover all sorts of information about the Great Wall for years has toured the country to look for the ruins of walls forgotten and often neglected only clues you find are in some ancient text and it is he who has to decipher the mysterious keys and place them within the landscape current MUSIC using only a walking stick to defend against snakes and rabid dogs have traveled thousands of Kilometers nevertheless it has obtained several successes after attending this border old room discovered an old wall nobody had noticed before its existence but there was a time it was part of a old great wall although it was done an earlier time and is located in a site different from that of the great wall that everyone knows and the more archaeologists and scientists investigate more mysterious is the great Chinese wall discovered thousands of abandoned walls in fact if you line up we do all the walls we now know we would add a total of 56 thousand 300 kilometers almost enough to give two turns to the earth but because built so many walls with a so high cost that they were afraid of the Chinese MUSIC it is said that you could present your arrival by its smell even before you hear the noise of your horses then they could not be stopped and they could go sowing terror by killing rape and burning villages just left behind and the smoke left by their bonfires and hundreds of abandoned corpses these were the nomadic hordes of the Mongolian huns and manchus they all came to an end with the placid life that the the Chinese lived in terror by these nomadic tribes and hated their difficult way of life a famous poem said they do not have fields or pastures only waste lands where bones lie between sand and mariña these tribes lived only livestock the animals provided them with basic needs like food milk meat useful for making tissues and manufacture the yurt or tent of the the manure provided them with fuel was the only way to feed a game in this inhospitable landscape the harsh conditions conditions forced nomads to moving in search of better pastures for livestock when diseases and the cold decimated their animals the nomadic hordes invaded the Chinese people when they refused to trade with them Chinese had everything the nomads they missed rice will be the writing and a very civilization built the Chinese wall will serve as between the civilized world of Chinese and the Barbarians for centuries the Chinese have been - Farmers if you feel that you are part of the earth stay in the same place and you go accumulating landed possessions and houses that full of furniture and goods they led a way of life constantly threatened by attacks of the nomads and for this reason since remote times the Chinese built walls around their villages and their country to protect itself from its enemies the construction of a wall will be a a feature so ingrained in the Chinese mentality than the Chinese word for city is the same as for wall Music to build a wall that surrounds a country the size of china required a powerful man of great tenacity a man so powerful he made china will bear his name the chinese emperor qin shihuang ti el first emperor of china began his construction two centuries before birth of Christ with a wall that it stretched more than 6,400 kilometers from inta or in central china through deserted mountains and plateaus until reaching the border Korean It is hard to believe that it was only 12 years imagine building a wall of nine meters in height and four meters and half width from new york to california without no modern equipment at first yes and only governed a small state in the Chinese northwest but this was not enough for him was surrounded by a invincible army and one by one was conquering all neighboring states he was said to deliver to his neighbors just as a silkworm devours a leaf with all china under his mandate the emperor without having carried out several measures such as creating a single currency world's first euro these are the good news the bad ones are that it was a paranoid tyrant who rewrote history thanks to his misdeeds the discovery of his tomb has put manifested both splendor and terror that lived during his reign in 1974 east of his tomb excavated an army of terracotta soldiers protecting his emperor of the evil spirits and is not of thumbnails are full size so far the Chinese have only excavated 10 percent of the deposit and thousands of people have already come to light. soldiers and about 10,000 weapons if their factions are closely observed, check that each one is different this terracotta army was sculpted from his counterpart in the real life the army appears formed to enter in combat in the back find a series of commands superiors giving orders the larger size of your waist inform about your age and category in sum, a total of 700 thousand men for 38 years in the building of the tomb of the emperor qin Music once it had unified Chinese and reorganized his empire qing anti fig sent 300,000 soldiers to the border the north to put an end to incursions of the nomads when they finished their work emperor 'ordered them to remain there and with half a million more peasants were responsible for building first great wall of china the wall was made from compressed earth it is still a technique used in china today are first placed in parallel wooden planks separated between yes according to the thickness of the wall then you go inland to water and is compressed when stepped on later new planks are erected and the wall begins to rise layer to layer and an easy and fast way to build a wall has been calculated which is 100 times easier than build it with stone this is the way i'm still anti built a wall of 6,400 kilometers in as little as 12 years surprisingly these walls are very resistant the walls of this ancient are almost two thousand years old and have preserved well thanks to the climate extremely dry of the gobi desert the wall served as protection for the but a large number of millions of men died of exhaustion while working in the wall wher you will enjoy the five some say that the dead are used as mortar and learned inside of her nobody managed to escape the tyranny of mandate of the emperor all peasants paid their taxes and contributed to the growing welfare of the empire the greatness of china was built at the expense of the poorest history of the Chinese dynasty is full of sadness stories there is a fairy tale in china so known as blancanieves or robin hood it is for us it says so in the heart of a raw winter swell me one decided to visit her husband who had been sent to work in the construction of the wall wanted to wear warm clothes to her beloved husband and in the first place addressed the first tower to ask the soldiers for the whereabouts of her husband this is well that he had died but they did not dare to tell him the truth so they sent him to the next watchtower of the wall but once again they told him the same thing then he walked the wall looking for her husband desperately from the tibet plateau to the yellow sea here and finally someone told me that her husband had died that it was one of the millions of tortured souls who wandered the wall his sadness and despair were so intense that his tears got cracked the wall today there is a temple dedicated to pilgrims come to this place to play a campaign that gives good luck and pray in front of his statue they can even observe through a telescope the gap in the wall caused by her heroine tears more in the years after the death of the emperor qin people rebelled against their invention they made with the arms of their soldiers of terracotta and beat their harmless soldiers who sent roofs of wood and burying the army until they were recently discovered but this peasant uprising only had no effect on futures emperors very soon a new dynasty began to build a wall even greater than that of the Chinese emperor the emperor without building his great coastal wall of the lives of thousands of peasants after a new dynasty the an continued with her obsession build a great wall but they they had additional help the bronze statue of the flying horse is one of the largest discoveries of Chinese archeology this was the last weapon of the dynasty there is a new breed of horses introduced in China by its enemies nomads was faster and stronger resistant than any horse that had existed in china became in the cruise missile of this generation and therefore is not wonder the artist sculpted it flying through the air with their helmets resting on the back of one surprised by London during this period despite its achievements military the new dynasty of the hand still i needed a big wall therefore around the time in who lived Jesus Christ built a second great wall this was spread over 10 thousand 700 kilometers and became the largest building in history of humanity has a total of 4,300 more miles than the first Emperor Ching Wall There is no wood water or rock in the desert however lohan they managed to to build a wall that has withstood illusion for two thousand years still you can see the layers built with the materials of the zone the layer of compressed earth branches cortez up seafood and horse manure this wall supporting conditions extreme climatic conditions ranging from scorching heat during the middle of the year to the icy winds of the other half build this wall in middle of an inhospitable desert was only half the task should be monitored soldiers to be constantly on guard and do not move a millimeter of your posts this was the work of those who they nail these watchtowers built around how many kilometers of the current wall despite having one of the greatest armies of the world the wall was so long that they lacked enough men to put a sentinel every few meters therefore warn of the attack enemy in advance became crucial the Chinese developed a sophisticated system of smoke signals with very good results a signal produced in the desert of gobi could send the message traveling 1,200 kilometers in only 24 hours warning of the danger to the Border the carriages and horses must be prepared and the men of the watchtowers keep your position to observe any smoke signal and protect our borders according to a military document the surveillance bet was built for your neighbor to observe closer so that the signals of I play a motor the night could be views and will pass the message we know how these men lived thanks to the dry gobi desert he has preserved his buried letters next to the watchtowers where they lived already family far field of work have to clear land in the middle of the sand in this camp is like a tomb and I miss you so much last week I received a dress I can not find words for express my deepest gratitude to you and my dear brother do you remember me of that night We drank so much, thank you for the food and medicines you sent me jce words are not enough for express what I feel for you today we have given 150 the strip all we seem Music the girl shines through the sea hotel when we are on guard all we see is this desolate empty landscape of any sign of life the memory of our homes makes a memory so painful and our exile does not seem to have e many never returned home ended up in tombs like this in large tombs for the generals and in small for the soldiers all of them died defending the great wall but the suffering of the soldiers served for something his presence preserved of the attacks enemies to merchants and travelers the caravans that never left the protection offered by the wall they left China loaded with silk and the I hope it's a rivard or a plant unknown in the west and much appreciated In medicine it this was the famous route of the city merchants returned ivory and coral it was a very dangerous route and through the greater deserts of the world but at least the wall and its guardians protected them from attacks of the bandits along their extension number the great wall caused a vertiginous chain reaction for the dynasty they have been offered protection to the caravans of the silk route the number of increased and prosperous caravans and hanes enriched and extended their territories to the north and west of the great wall tired of spinning at the base of a wall that could not exp. to the west and conquered asia central and eastern europe threatened also the other great power of the old continent rome when the Hun fights the scourge of God advanced on Rome was afraid of that the paperwork should be directed to gates of the city to beg you do not attack the sacred city this encounter between paganism and Christianity would never have taken place without the existence of the great wall according to legend a very superstitious opted for the withdrawal already that the father's name meant lion but it was only a temporary relief for the Romans an subsequent attack and blunt touch to yield to Attila and to submerge Europe for five centuries in called barbarian ages while Europe suffered who entered into its golden age with the arrival of the dynasty tang the emperors more rich and powerful in the history of there are statues of guardians of the spirit scattered throughout the country that protected the tombs of the time golden china one of the few tombs real excavated belongs to the princess john thain the daughter of an emperor reflects the luxurious life they wore these aristocrats of vocation with their customs imported from the route of the city and its polo matches Music What! Music the armies of the Tang dynasty controlled large areas on both sides of the wall so that it is no longer used as a defensive system and turned into a ruin to keep the order in the steppes are preferred to give greater importance to trade and diplomacy more than defensive system of the wall and best diplomats of the time were the princesses every true lines period of time was chosen one princess to marry her to a boss nomad was sent with his eunuchs servants and loads of lavish gifts life in exile was torture for these 15 rooms were accustomed to be treated as fragile beauties of porcelain and now they were forced to eat pieces of cooked meat drink milk fermented mare and sleep with a barbarian husband who never washed a princess lamented thus my house is the most of my walls are of center nor drink the fermented milk with a foreign country dreaming of becoming in a yellow crane to be able to return to my home send a princess into exile and married to a barbarian he seemed in start a very small price for buying peace was certainly a cheaper system to build and watch over a great wall but this policy was only successful transient a new danger to them lurking from the northern serials from the country China was about to face the most cruel warrior he has ever known the history beyond the great wall the barbarian peoples traveled asia destroying the beat and plundering everything that crossed their path here began the worst nightmare that has lived with the birth of a child with his right hand soaked in blood an omen of what was going to happen while growing moo jin became very strong learned to master the art of tribal politics and thanks to his cunning and betrayal & became the head of his tribe and later of several tribes in 1.204 was already in charge of all tribes and became the first king of all the nomadic peoples they called that indicate king of king and to avoid that his cruel warriors did not know what which was pain or compassion they could ride for days without dismount when food was scarce they sipped the blood of their horses never they took prisoners because they massacred whole cities people had them so much fear that he surrendered without offering Resistance. Genis soon turned his attention to from the south to the fertile Chinese her bloody hand birth of was about to meet with his terrible destiny during the summer the dry the rivers offered easy invasion of nomads whose intention is was to plunder the rich Chinese cities of the plains for this reason these steps remained heavily guarded despite the fact that they had let the rest of the wall would become a ruin a Mongolian army of 100,000 warriors invaded China through this step located to the north of the capital Beijing nowadays still the main road for where the train and the motorway in direction to Beijing pass through ghengis kahn mountains stopped here in front of the north gate of the fortress of ginowan the chinese pierced the earth before the door to put stakes that slowed the advance of the Mongolian hordes and pointed out great fortress gate with iron to prevent it from being opened after a month of waiting and without any sign of weakening of the strength that indicate decided to cross it when a group of soldiers through the mountains where the Chinese at this time do not know had been concerned about keeping the and attacked the fortress by the back when the army Chinese realized what was it was too late the Mongols advanced on the plain attacking ginowan by the rear they destroyed the door they let us through the whole army the most valuable and foreign they reigned now in china was a choice that the Chinese never will forget the successor they indicate was kublai khan who ruled the greater empire that has known history extended from china to the same borders of europe and did not need help of a great wall controlled it everything despite its Kuwaiti influence year was going to last in power the Chinese still considered the invading bearded mongolian rulers the devastating river floods yellow unleashed a revolt popular against the hated sovereigns foreigners and the Mongols were defeated were replaced by a chinese dynasty lamy who was willing not to return to fall into the mistakes of the past these are the descendants of the men who built the wall during this dynasty and expelled Mongols outside of China are proud of their male ancestors and women who built and defended the last great Chinese wall this is the reason why these farmers in a remote village still practice the statements each morning before going to work in the field the new rulers the emperors ming were resolved that not a new invasion would happen again therefore in 1368 when europa was being decimated by the plague black. the emperors carried out the major civil engineering project of the world is even greater than previous walls as it was built in stone mostly the thousand wall extends from saná same in the yellow sea until ya you want in the gobi desert country as a long and sinuous column vertebral with a length of 6 thousand 400 kilometers and with thousands of watchtowers protrude as if they were vertebrae Music most of the wall is built in stone a material of construction 100 times harder to use the brick missing and steep mountains did not constitute a impediment for workers to wall was also to be monitored between these hazy summits the watchtowers played a crucial role in the defense of the wall and that they needed reinforcement the guards made a signal to the village less than a kilometer away Music here still remain the walls of the abandoned barracks of an old garrison around 500 troops were stationed here and if this was not enough there was even a greater concentration of troops in fortresses a few meters from remotely in this way a small number of men on the wall could to warn an army of about a million men in a matter of hours build a wall of these features was not easy at all much of the work was done by those who died should be replaced by another member of their family until the completion of the imposed sentence Music every 15 meters workers installed drains to eliminate the Rainwater harvesting these drains are always built on the inside of the wall the side away from the enemy so that he could not throw a rope to the duct and climb the wall here on a steep incline the wall rises on steps towards the watchtower therefore if the enemy succeeded climb up these functions will look like defended but against the watchtowers stand above the wall this way the archers could throw arrow on soldiers Down! these towers had an area cover for the troops to be will rest from the cold will rest and store without weapons in the area uncovered from the top protected by finished troops maintained vigilance and counterattacked is the amazing defense system especially if we take into account the land on which this section is almost vertical as it is uphill on a steep slope in this part has only a width of half a meter and a drop of more than 300 meters Music resolved that no ship should govern china again the thousand emperors fortified every inch of terrain Chinese so that they would not pass armies and open the door to greater Music the emperors were willing to bear any load or pay any price to maintain its dynasty in power and this is the place from where they ruled the great city banned from Beijing with its gardens temples and palaces halls the city has an extension of 73 hectares surrounded by a moat and shoulder walls the forbidden city a place of retreat a place from which the divine emperors min could govern and live without being molested by modest citizens of his empire inside its red walls are developed a unique life throughout the history of humanity at its center was the emperor whose life was full of complicated ritual is needed for the governor of all China and celebrated the country would thrive and flower shop the dynasty ming the emperor he had at his service an army full of concubines and guarding you are an even greater army of eunuchs one of the last emperors of the ming wang li dynasty was a very weak monarch who got remain in power for 47 years ruled from his palace and never to be seen by its citizens or its ministers and even very rarely for their eunuchs isolated from almost everything did not know what was happening in the country that ruled the emperors thousand remain buried in graves north of the peking capital Music all the tombs keep the same design with a temple on the side front and a walled enclosure back of the underground tomb I know. Music owing to its long dual mandate and build a huge tomb and in 1956 several Chinese archeologists decided open the one tomb of an emperor ming that has been excavated while workers would have the heavy gates of the tomb was put to the discovered a huge vacuum a lot greater than any of those in a tomb of an Egyptian pharaoh there were the coffins the emperor and two of his wives communist authorities ordered open the tomb to offer a social awareness lesson and show the luxurious life they had led capitalist leaders while the working masses they were starving they could not have been say a better example as they demonstrated the luxurious objects that were found in the inside Music among them is this light hat woven with gold the combination of a luxurious life and a incompetent government could not last the dynasty came to an end 24 years after the construction of this tomb but the end of the thousand did not come through the wall was caused by the beauty of a woman or the Chinese believed that their great wall built by millions of workers would protect them forever But that did not happen. a the story begins with the looting of peking in 1644 by a rebel army during the chaos that followed a nomadic tribe the manchúes saw the perfect opportunity to invade and China his immense army advanced on china but the wall remained intact during its invasion neither was destroyed nor a centimeter of wall this is the strength that the Manchus they wanted to conquer was governed by the most important and faithful general of all the empire The general Music It is therefore strange that find among the sample of soldiers bravest of the fortress is not included because of what you did when you found with the Manchú army the general had only one weakness his love for a concubine, the young lady chan known as the beauty of the face round unfortunately Miss Chan also attracted the attention of the leader of the Chinese rebels who had just looted Peking desperate to regain his love time. General Guti gave aid to his hated enemy to manchúes to end the rebellion and of course to release your beloved miss chan here in saná and wang the general güito something inconceivable opened the doors of the great wall to let the male army enter the largest engineering project civil failure worldwide not due to any structural weakness but because of the smile of a beautiful young woman Music the new Manchu dynasty tried implement a policy different with its neighbors Diplomacy here in his beautiful palace were receiving delegations from all the countries of the east Music compulsory attendance was expected that its neighbors paid their taxes to Grouper this was Manchu diplomacy but the guests should feel comfortable the emperor even sent officers to the tibet to draw and measure

his prestige so great which according to Tibetan legend the emperor invited him to sit in the throne of the dragon a unique privilege Chinese sources say that it adopted a humble position and offered the emperor a sacred scarf in return the emperor demonstrated the more faithful reproduction of his palace in He lives without a doubt is much more Cheap build these great temples with its sinuous golden dragons that guarnecer and maintain the great wall Emperor even came to arrest Tibetan to talk to your visitor has an interpreter further ordered that all main public inscriptions are translated into all the languages ​​of the Mongolian Mongolian kino and Mongolian empire spotted plus Music several monks settled here and today continue the rituals Buddhists long after the last emperor to leave the throne Music and as for the great wall the rulers let it fall into ruins once again since they did not need it defense as the only wall of which they worried about the one that surrounded their a palace built to protect wild animals that liked to hunt for the first time in history the great wall was of no value to the Chinese in the latest and intriguing chapter of the history of the wall had not yet written the great wall the biggest and most amazing by both the ancient world he fulfilled his mission for two thousand years, however, it was only in the the last 200 years when the West fixed on her in 1793 the British sent a Chinese diplomatic expedition by mccartney to start business relationships with her when mccartney stopped to admire the wall on your trip

Construction

1966 Iso Rivolta IR 300.
1966 Iso Rivolta IR 300.

The manufacturer wanted the car to be known for its powerful engine, high quality of construction and elegant style. Expensive press-tool dies were produced, but volumes never justified the investment in presses to go with them, and for several years the dies were kept at the factory and periodically sent out to be fitted to a sub-contracted press in the area in order that a batch of body panels could be produced.[1]

Engine and running gear

Although originally envisaged as a competitor for the elegant Fiat 2300 Coupé, the low sales volumes achieved by the Iso Rivolta 300 made it prudent to move the car and its price upmarket. A 5.4 litre V8 engine was fitted, similar to one of the units installed in the Chevrolet Corvette. The all-synchromesh four-speed gear change was operated with a central floor mounted stick shift.

Chassis

The front wheels of the Iso Rivolta 300 are suspended by linkages of uneven length with a sway bar. The rear wheels are attached with twin trailing arms using a De Dion axle with a Watt's linkage. Coil springs and telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers are fitted to all four wheels. The recirculating ball steering system needs five turns from lock to lock: the turning circle is unusually large at approximately 12.5 meters. With a 7 ° 30 ' caster angle, straight-line stability is excellent even at 200 km/h (124 mph).

Interior & Exterior

The Bertone designed coupé has a wheelbase of 270 cm, which enables five people to sit in comfort. The interior is equipped with leather seats. The arrangement of steering wheel, gear shift, switches and pedals is considered as exemplary. When leaving the factory the Rivolta was originally fitted with Pirelli Cinturato 205VR15 tyres (CN72).
