Isotta Fraschini began in 1899 when Cesare Isotta and Oreste Fraschini began producing cars in Milan, Italy. They had a reputation of building not only fine cars, but also military machines, marine and aircraft engines. The Tipo 8 Series of cars were built from 1919-1935 and are recognized as the world's first quantity production straight-eight engine. This is the earliest known Tipo 8 Series extant and may likely be the first of that series produced. It remains, incredibly, in unrestored, original condition. It was first bodied by Cesare Sala of Milan. In 1926, it received solid side-mount covers and special interior fitments by Carrozzeria Riva.

When new, the car was reportedly sold but never delivered, and likely was retained by the factory as a demonstrator for chauffeur training. Isotta Fraschini later put the vehicle in storage off-site of its factory, likely sparing the car from destruction during World War II. The car was found in July of 2016 stored in an Italian defense and security company warehouse, then was exported to the United Sates some 92 years after it was built.
