1964 Lancia Sport Prototipo Zagato news, pictures, and information
Chassis Num: 815538 1001
|Sold for $245 (€190) at 2012 RM Auctions.|
Power is from a boxer four-cylinder engine rated at 148 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes.
Its inaugural race was in 1964 at the Targa Florio where it was piloted by Marco Crosina and Fernando Frescobaldi, and wore race number 184. After an accidental off-road excursion, the car was forced to retire from the race. This would be one of the few racing events for the car due to limited funds. The Works team, instead, decided to race the standard road-going Flavia Zagato in the 'Turismo' category to try to help the sales of that car.
After the car's racing career came to an end, it was left in Lancia's Reparto Corse and stored for a few years. In 1967, Claudio Maglioli, who was the Italian champion with Lancia in 1965 and 1966, came across the car and immediately negotiated with Sandro Fiorio, head of Lancia's racing department, to purchase the car and any remaining spare parts. The car remained with Maglioli for two decades, and was given a careful and meticulous sympathetic restoration. It remained with him until 1991, when it was sold to the current owner.
In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the RM Auction's Monaco sale. The car was estimated to sell for €180.000-€240.000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of €190.400 inclusive of buyer's premium.
