Lancia History

1951 Lancia Aurelia

Share on:

The Vittorio-designed Lancia Aurelia was truly revolutionary in that it combined high levels of performance and luxury into one attractive and compact package. The brainchild of Lancia engineer, Francesco de Virgilio, it is the first production automobile to utilize V6 power. Bodywork was provided by Pinin Farina.

A second-place finish in the 1951 Mille Miglia, a first in class and 12th overall at Le Mans, a stunning 1-2-3 Finish at the Targa Florio and a high profile win at the 1953 Liege-Rome-Liege Rally, silenced any doubts as to its sporting prowess.

The first owner of this vehicle, Sig. Mario Mafei, was a famed movie producer in Italy who owned it from July 1951 until July 1965. The third owner, Sandro Lanza, kept it for 43 years. In all, it had 4 owners until 2015 when the present owner acquired it in Italy. There, the car underwent an extensive 26-month rotisserie restoration by a team of Lancia specialists who restored it to exact factory specifications. It was then Lancia FCA Heritage book certified reflecting 100% authenticity and matching numbers.

Italian experts report that, although a total of 371 units were built by Lancia, only about 50 of these cars remain in existence today.
