History of Isotta Fraschini
Founded by Cesare Isotta and Oreste
Fraschini, Isotta-Fraschini built a wide range of models in
pre-Great War days, mainly four-cylinder cars up to 11,304cc. A
six-cylinder, built in 1908, had 11,939cc.
Isotta-Fraschini, driven by Trucco, won the 1908 Targa Florio, and
1911 saw a small model with a 1.3 litre ohc engine, supposedly
designed by Ettore Bugatti, a statement strongly denied by
Isotta-Fraschini chief designer Cattaneo, who designed between the
two World Wars the most famous model ever built by this car
manufacturer: the straight-eight Isotta-Fraschini, the world's
first series production straight-eights.
