Together with the 1960 model-year, the 1961 Lancia Flaminia Sport is often considered the Series 2 example of Flaminia Sport line thanks to a new nose configuration that left the classic with a more distinct resemblance to the Flaminia Berlina. Gone were the inset headlights and sharp profile. The 1961 Lancia Flaminia Sport boasted a more traditional, conservative front end with an upright profile and traditionally placed regular-style headlights. Paired with a 2.5L V6 engine and a single-carburetor setup, it is estimated that approximately 190 examples of the Lancia Flaminia Sport were manufactured between 1959 and 1961. In 1962, a three Weber carburetor version of the 2.5L V6 would debut. It being the most expensive model in the Flaminia line at the time, the Sport would often sell for 40 percent higher than the Berlina on export markets.
