DescriptionThe Isotta Fraschini was the most expensive motorcar ever produced in Italy. They were delivered to the dignitaries and royalty of the period. It was considered by auto buyers throughout the world as the most desirable car to own. There are very few complete original examples of any body style in the world. This is probably the rarest in that it is an 8ASS (Super Sprint) engine on a short chassis. The top speed is capable of well over 100mph with luxury on the ride. This is one of only two 8ASS Roadsters. The history is like the who's who in the world of collecting. The car was delivered, new out of the New York showroom, to Albert Wielich. The car history registers D.Cameron Peck, Thomas W. Barrett, III, Gerald Roth and the Harrah Collection through 1986. Harrah's owned the car from 1974 through 1986. It continued to reside in Nevada until this year. This is the first time since 1986 that the public has the opportunity to buy the automobile.
