In 1970 the engine capacity was increased to 5,736 cc (350.0 cu in). A equal maximum power (300 or 350 hp), improved distribution of torque and thus the elasticity of travel.

In 1972, due to the request of GM to pay in advance engines, the Chevrolet engine was replaced with the Ford Cleveland V8. The automatic transmission also became Ford, while the manual (a 5-speed transmission) remained unchanged. In 1973, the standard version (now known as Lele IR6) was flanked by Lele IR6 Sports, with an engine enhanced to 360 hp (270 kW) and change only manual ZF 5-speed transmission.

Following the agreement with Philip Morris that led to the creation of the Iso-Marlboro brand in Formula 1, Philip Morris commissioned Iso to construct 2 specially modified Leles for their Formula 1 Team Drivers Howden Ganley and Nanni Galli. Modified by Eng. Bizzarrini these two cars were stripped of sound deadening, power steering etc. to reduce weight. Both cars had a unique dash layout that did not appear on any other Lele. Bizzarrini then modified the 351 Cobra Jet engine to produce over 360 HP. Painted in Marlboro Red with Marlboro badges on the front fenders Ganley's car debuted on the Iso Rivolta stand at the 1973 Geneva Auto Show. Galli's car was painted in white. The exterior styling cues from these two cars were used to create the Lele Sport which also had a modified version of their dash layout. Philip Morris also commissioned at least two more cars for promotional purposes to resemble the Marlboro cars given to its drivers. These cars were essentially Lele Sports with Marlboro badges on the fenders. They were equipped with power steering, more padding in the seats and other comforts that were stripped out of the drivers' cars.

The production of Lele ended in December 1974, with the closure of Iso.
Only 13 of this model has been produced with the 350 horsepower engine. The car is in a very good condition with a very nice leather patina.
