Knowledgeable sports car enthusiasts are quick to perk up when they hear the name Intermeccanica, and with good reason. Intermeccanica was established in 1959 by chemical engineer Frank Reisner and his wife, Paula. Their cars combined Italian artistry with an American drivetrain. The Reisners were passionate car enthusiasts who loved sports cars and racing. They traveled to Europe and settled in Torino, Italy, where they opened their company and began manufacturing aftermarket performance parts. In 1967, after a series of name, ownership, and engineering changes within the company, the Reisners began production of the stunning Italia Spyder. The first Italias were exported to the United States in 1968. The cars were unlike anything else on the market and quickly gained the attention of discerning American car lovers. However, with limited production and a dear price tag of $8,500, only the affluent could afford them. To many aficionados, the 1968 Intermeccanica Italia Spyder was an automotive masterpiece. The cars prancing bull badging was a gracious nod to Torinos coat of arms. Its styling, which was classic Italian with vintage Ferrari undertones, was elegant. Its performance was equally impressive, as it could reach 060 in 6.2 seconds and had a top speed of 155 mph, which was attained through a powerful and proven Ford V-8 engine. The Italias steel body was hand-formed, and its chassis was made from tubular steel. With only 354 produced from 1967 to 1973, the Italia has since taken on an appealing mystique as a rare automobile and today is highly desired by collectors and enthusiasts who seek the thrill of a genuine classic Italian sports car. The 1969 Intermeccanica Italia Spyder featured here is finished in stunning Rosso Red with a gorgeous black leather interior and matching convertible top.
