Exotic, rare automobiles have come to Rockefeller Center for Christie’s auction on 18 May 2002. A high point was a 1931 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8B Viggo Jensen Cabriolet. An imposing automobile that is nearly as long as its name, the Isotta Fraschini has an in-line eight-cylinder engine, the first of its type. During their heyday, these cars were among the most desirable of luxury autos; owners included Pope Pius XI, the Aga Khan, William Randolph Hearst and Rudolph Valentino.
This 1931 Isotta Fraschini, considered one of only three existing Tipo 8B’s, has been restored and won best of show in 1995 at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance car show in California.
