Isotta Fraschini 8C Monterosa
1947-1949, 4 produced.
An attempt by Isotta-Fraschini to re-enter the automotive market after the war, the 8C Monterosa, launched in 1947, used an unconventional approach. It was a large, six-seat car, powered by a 3400cc V8 positioned at the rear and driving the rear wheels through a five-speed transmission. The body was designed by Zagato. Four cars were built before the company ceased trading in 1949, closed by its owners, the Italian government. These were a four door berlina by Rapi (built by Zagato), another four door berlina by Touring, a two door berlina also by Touring and a cabriolet by Boneschi.
