Quercetti – Isotta Discovery Car
The Isotta Discovery Car is a nine piece transparent plastic car that demonstrates the internal workings of car cylinders, pistons, gearbox and differentials. Back in the mid 1900’s, Cesare Isotta and Vincenzo Fraschini (two Italians) started delivering a super extravagance vehicle for well off customers. Each car was hand made and no two were exactly the same. In spite of the fact that the Isotta never turned into a winning brand, Quercetti has utilized that incredible manufacturers name to introduce children to the working of the internal combustion engine.
The Quercetti Isotta Discovery Car is designed for pre-engineers from three years of age, however, it is a car that will appeal to children aged up to ten.
The nine sections of the car are - a base frame chassis, a steering wheel, a three cylinder engine, a gearbox, a differential and four wheels. The three main components - the pistons, the engine and the gearbox are each pre-assembled and housed in a sealed transparent frames.
Therefore, children can see the front fan twirl with the crank shaft causing the pistons to move up and down in succession.
They can then observe exactly how a differential gear system works and watch how middle gears transfer power from the engine to the back wheels.
The steering wheel is functional and can be used to turn the car.
All the parts snap together effortlessly and disassemble just as easily.
The Isotta Discovery Car measures roughly 28cm long and 20.5cm wide, making them appropriate for young hands.
