Intermeccanica (or more correctly, Construzione Automobili Intermeccanica) is an automobile company with an extraordinary history – it was founded by the American couple Frank and Paula Reisner, who moved to Torino in Italy to pursue their dream of building beautiful, high-performance sports cars.
Frank and Paula started out in 1959 building performance parts for European cars, their best sellers were free-flow exhaust systems but they also created a line of performance cam shafts, intake manifolds and dual throat carburettors. By 1960 they had stepped up to creating Formula Junior cars – one of which had a win at the Nurburgring. By 1961 they were producing their first road car, the Apollo GT, of which just over 100 were made by the time production ceased in 1965.
