ITALIA COMFORT

Check out the latest picture on our blog header – a fantastic interior shot of an Italia convertible, the product of Frank Reisner and his company, Intermeccanica – one of many great photos from our forthcoming book, Intermeccanica - The Story of the Prancing Bull. With a Nardi steering wheel and handcrafted leather seating, the Italia's cockpit rivaled many luxury sports cars in the late-1960s. (Picture courtesy of Dan Eastwood)

Frank Reisner, a Hungarian-born Canadian, turned a youthful passion for cars into one of the world’s most famous small sports car building companies. From modest beginnings in Turin, Intermeccanica designed & produced a dozen different but exciting models that shook the motoring world in the '60s & '70s.
