Coachbuilt Lancia lambdas became more popular with the advent of the 7th and 8th Series chassis designs. In Britain Lambdas were available from James Young, Gurney Nutting, Corsica and the Albany Coachwork Company. This is the only surviving example of three very intriguing Airway saloons built by Albany. The streamlined aero-style bodywork on this car, which was shown at the London Motor Show in 1927, includes an altimeter an air speed indicator and a spotlight on the roof. The Curtis Automobile Company of London, the sole UK Lancia concessionaire at the time, described it as 'The Airliner on Land.' This Airway was recently restored.
