The final car designed by Vincenzo Lancia shortly before his death at the beginning of 1937 was the Aprilia. The 4-cylinder mid-sized model featured four-wheel independent suspension, a narrow-angle V4 engine, and a platform chassis that was a precursor to unibody construction.

This convertible spider is one of two special Aprilias that were built on the Lancia Type 439 chassis in 1948. One was a coupe and the other is this car, which was first bought by Gino Bartali, the famous Italian cyclist and 1948 Tour de France winner. The car was displayed by Pinin Farina alongside an Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 S outside the Paris Salon that year. It is highly possible that it was spotted by William Lyons of Jaguar and could well have been the inspiration for the Jaguar XK120. After several years in Europe, the car was shipped to the United States where it has remained. It was recently found in Detroit and has subsequently been restored by its current owner.
