The Lancia Aurelia was the most advanced production car of its day. The long chassis B53 incorporated the ground-breaking, narrow-angle 2-liter V6 Lancia engine. One of Italy's oldest coach building companies, Viotti was one of the first coachbuilders to establish a proper production line, and between 1933 and 1939 it bodied thousands of Fiats while also undertaking one-off commissions on exotic chassis. After the war, it created 47 station wagons based on the Lancia Aurelia, of which this car is one of two survivors. This car was found in a field in Sardinia and although it had been neglected it was complete. A full restoration was carried out in Italy.
