Lancia & Co. was founded in 1907 by engineer and racing driver Vincenzo Lancia and quickly made a name for itself with innovative designs and production methods. The company also became known for being quite uncompromising, and for holding on to its own traditions and techniques even though it would eventually lead to commercial failure. Although Lancia models were typically sold to loyal Italian customers who appreciated the makes original designs, the cars would find admirers around the globe. It was not uncommon to see Lancia models make their way into the United State market, for example, after being privately imported. Lancia models were more expensive than their Fiat counterparts, yet less expensive than the Alfa Romeo models of the early 1950s. After the war, Alfa Romeo would turn to mass production and would directly challenge Lancias more profitable place in the market. This turn of events would directly influence the direction of the company. The two companies would offer competing products for decades.
Some of the most popular classic Lancia models include the Lancia Aurelia (1950-1958), the Lancia Appia (1953 -1963) and the Lancia Flaminia (1957 to 1970). Each of these models, of course, offers a variety of body styles and tune. The Lancia Flaminia Sport and Super Sport models designed by Zagato, for example, are highly collectable today due to their impressive and luxurious design, comfortable driving experience and rarity. In fact, only several hundred of these unique classics were ever built. Lancia would partner with some of Italys best designers and engineers to give the marquee a reputation for inspiring coupes and convertibles.
