Coys is to sell what is believed to be the only surviving 1969 Lancia Fulvia Spider Fiorio & Maglioli at its Autosport International sale tomorrow (11 January).
Chassis 00200 is the second of three cars produced by Cesare Fiorio and Claudio Maglioli to combat the cockpit heat that had been affecting drivers in endurance racing.
They took the roof off the HF coupé and shortened the chassis by 28mm, losing 200kg in the process and creating a hugely successful racer (see bottom for results).
Chris Routledge, Managing Partner of Coys, said: “With its unrivalled provenance and period works racing history, this car is highly prized and a truly iconic motor car that will be accepted into every historic event in Europe and the US. It is estimated at £210,000 to £230,000.”
