Who will be the new owner of this incredible piece of international automotive history.
For the longest time, two nations have stood out among the rest as the world's greatest producers of performance-based vehicles. Those special two were America and Italy. You can say what you want about us Americans and our fantastic plastic or the Italians and the "pompous" reputation many people place on their cars. Still, we are the producers of power that everyone strives to be. The only true disadvantage that these countries seem to have is their long history of not working well together. That was until 1959 when the Intermeccanica automobile company was born. This American/Italian hybrid served to fill the gap in the international performance market and essentially created a new genre for the enthusiasts of the world to have fun with.
This 1969 Intermeccanica Italia Spyder is a perfect example of that beautiful power, style, and handling combination. Under the hood of this great red sports car is the famous 351 Windsor racing V8, which boasts just 33,858 miles on the odometer. Of course, the exterior of this incredible machine is all Italian in terms of design language. Stunning red paint adorns the car's entire body, while a set of wire wheels show off the color scheme with an eye-catching alloy.
To call this car rare would be the understatement of the century as only 354 cars of this specification were produced in Torino, Italy. As far as American/Italian hybrid vehicles go, it's challenging to find one that does the job of combining the incredible power provided by the American V8 with the distinctly Italian design and handling of a diminutive, fast speedster than this car. Another cool feature found with this car is the four-speed manual which is controlled by a Hurst shifter. This insane restored piece of history reflects the best of two fantastic worlds, and any automotive enthusiast would be happy to get behind the wheel.
