Chassis Num: 824031353
This Zagato-bodied Lancia Flaminia Sport Coupe has the unique 'double bubble' Zagato trademark and features low overall lines and a rounded streamlined shape with convex head-clearance roof bugles above each front seat.
Introduced at the 1956 Turin Motor Show, the Flaminia had its Aurelia predecessor's mechanical layout. The traditional 'sliding pillar' independent front suspension was replaced with a more modern double wisbhone setup. Power was from the 60-degree, 2458cc, overhead-valve, V6 engine. The Zagato-bodied Sport and Super Sport models rested on a shortened wheelbase with the Touring-Styled GT/GTL Coueps and the Convertibles, and all featured disc brakes and increased power. In 1963, a 2775cc engine was introduced.
This example is one of just 205 Flaminia Sport models produced between 1959 and 1961. It has left-hand drive configuration and is finished in blue with matching interior. In 2002, it was treated to a restoration. It is current fitted with a 2.8 liter engine, but also retains its correct specification 2.5 liter powerplant which was removed by the previous owner in order to enhance the car's performance.
In 2012, the car was offered for sale at Bonhams Auction in Monaco. It had an estimated value of $180,000 - $250,000. Bidding failed to satisfy the vehicle's reserve and it would leave the auction unsold.By Daniel Vaughan | Jan 2013
