Description

This is an incredibly rare and desirable Lancia, It is a 1960 Lancia Flaminia Pinifarina Coupe, Right Hand Drive, finished in White with Black Leather interior. The car is in a superb restored condition although it is not a showcar. We have not seen another RHD of this model  for many years. It is the 2.5 Litre V6, Single Carb Version. The car has been in Italy since 1969 and is now in the process of being UK Registered. It has a new MOT and is ready for the summer. A more elegant and useable Italian Thoroughbred I cant recall in this price bracket. With the Zagato and Touring versions of the Flaminia going through the roof, the Pininfarina car, will be the next to rise so watch this space!

Despite surrendering the ruinously expensive D50 Grand Prix project to rival Ferrari at the end of the 1955 season, the Lancia family was still forced to sell up. Taking a majority shareholding, Italian industrialist Carlo Pesenti lost little time in appointing Antonio Fessia to replace the Ferrari-bound Vittorio Jano as chief engineer. Debuting at the 1957 Geneva Salon, the Flaminia saloon represented a conscious move upmarket. Based around a monocoque bodyshell equipped with unequal-length wishbone independent front suspension, a well-located De Dion back axle and hydraulic four-wheel drum brakes (albeit discs were soon adopted), the newcomer was powered by a second generation 2.5 litre OHV V6 engine allied to a rear-mounted four-speed transaxle.

Enjoying near 50:50 weight distribution, the four-door won widespread acclaim for its ride / handling balance and smooth power delivery. The work of Battista 'Pinin' Farina - then at the height of his powers - and derived from the Lancia Florida show car, its crisp, clean lines were to have a profound effect on automotive styling. Introduced some two years later, the Flaminia Coupe was another Pininfarina masterpiece (though, this time indebted to the Florida II show car). Sitting on a shortened version of its saloon sibling's floorpan (2750mm vs. 2870mm) the svelte two-door also benefited from more horsepower (119hp vs. 102hp) and a higher 170km/h top speed. Not dissimilar in appeal to a Ferrari 250 GTE, the 2+2 seater Lancia proved decidedly popular among Italy's high-fliers and celebrities. Only in production from 1959-1967, just 5,236 Flaminia Coupes are thought to have been made with only about 140 of this model in RHD.

The car drives perfectly, will come UK registered and is ready to show and use. It was the most refined and elegant of the Coupes based on the Flaminia platform and this really may be your only chance to buy a Right Hand Drive example for many years. A very sound purchase and a great place to park some money for the next few years!
