The classic Lancia Flaminia is an Italian luxury car built by Lancia between 1957 and 1970. The flagship model at the time for the Italian automaker, the Flaminia replaced the Aurelia and was available throughout production as a Saloon, Coupe and Cabriolet. The Coupe and Cabriolet models were coachbuilt cars, with bodies by several notable Italian coachbuilders such as Pininfarina, Zagato and Touring. Two of the most popular, the Lancia Flaminia Sport and Super Sport were designed by Ercole Spada at Zagato. The Flaminia showcased the innovation and beautiful designs that the Italian auto industry was capable of at the time. Because of expensive technical and mechanical components, however, the Flaminia was quite expensive for its day. An independent suspension all around, De Dion rear axle with integrated gearbox, disc brakes all around and an aluminum V6 engine were just a few of the advancements and technical specifications available to Lancia buyers at the time. In total, little over 10,000 examples were ever built.
If youre thinking about buying a Lancia Flaminia, consider the Lancia Flaminia Zagato Sport. Featuring Zagatos famous double bubble roof design, the aluminum-bodied Sport was built on a shortened wheelbase from that of the standard GT Coupe. Zagato also restyled the front headlights by replacing the squared off look in favor of rounded units. Power would continue to be generated from a V6 engine paired with a five-speed manual transmission. Lancia and Zagato would follow the Sport with the Super Sport, which would boast a new 2.8L 152hp triple-carbureted V6. These are perhaps some of the most sought-after examples in Lancias history. When considering a model for purchase, however, always ensure you are indeed looking at an original. This can be achieved in several ways, yet matching engine and chassis numbers to historical records is perhaps the best way.
