The Intermeccanica Italia Spyder combines a stylish Italian chassis with some American muscle. Franco Scaglione designed the chassis in the mid-1960s. But the Spyder owes its bite to an eight-cylinder US engine - in his case a Ford. Drive it! checks out an Italia Spyder with the optional four-speed manual gear box.
