Total Production: 1,685 1928 - 1935 Lancia was founded in 1906 by Vincenzo Lancia, who built a reputation for designing Lancia's narrow-angle V4 and V6 engines.
The Lancia Dilambda was produced from 1928 to 1935. There were three generations during its production lifespan. The Dilambda was Lancia's luxury model, and was previewed in 1927 in New York and a finished production car was shown in Paris the following year. The cars were offered with two factory body styles or as a bare chassis fitted with Lancia's new 3.9-liter V8 engine.
Unlike the other Lancia automobiles at the time, this model was powered by a V8 engine instead of the V4 found in the prior models. The second generation of the Dilambda (produced from 1931 and 1933 with around 300 units produced) featured a modified gearbox and brakes. The third series, produced from 1933 through 1935, had 281 examples produced. This version featured modifications to its chassis which improved is aerodynamics. Its wheelbase was also lengthened.
