Castagna Isotta Fraschini 8A S Roadster
Castagna Isotta Fraschini 8A S Roadster
9.5/10 rating (2 votes)


The Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A possessed power and speed, that was synonimous by its refined engineering of the large eight cylinder engine. With the length of the engine being so grand, it allowed the coachbuilders to produce a long hood and cowl, which made the Tipo 8 so recognizable.

This car (# 1482) is believed to be only one of two known Castagna Roadsters on the Tipo 8A S chassis.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
