Intermeccanica - The Story of the Prancing Bull is the definitive biography of Frank Reisner and his incredible sports car company, Intermeccanica - responsible for some of the most beautiful sports cars ever built.

Most notable of these models are the Apollo, the Italia and the Indra.

Along the way, Reisner and Intermeccanica dealt with, and in one case sued, the largest automotive manufacturers in the world, all the while maintaining an independent streak and maverick spirit that would come to define the man and his company.
