Special Sports Torpedo
Coachwork: Castagna
Chassis #: 1659
The Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8 series engine was designed by chief engineer Giustino Cattaneo during World War I and introduced with the new Tipo 8 chassis in August 1919. The Tipo 8 was followed in 1925 by the Tipo 8A, with an engine enlarged to 7.3-liters, and this in turn was followed by the highly tuned 160 horsepower Tipo 8A SS.

This isotta Fraschini is one of the rare SS (Super Spinto) models built for the more spirited high-speed driver. It is one of only two examples of the 8A SS with this Castagna-built dual cowl Torpedo coachwork known to exist today. The design received many plaudits at the 1933 Paris Auto Salon when it was displayed on the Castagna stand - and 50 years later, in 1983, this Isotta Fraschini was awarded Best in Show at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
