Description

The Lancia Aurelia is a car that was produced by the Italian manufacturer Lancia. Designed by Vittorio Jano, the Aurelia was launched in 1950 and production lasted until the summer of 1958. The Aurelia used the first production V6 engine, a 60° design developed by Francesco de Virgilio who was, between 1943 and 1948 a Lancia engineer, and who worked under Jano.

The fourth series introduced the new de Dion tube rear suspension. The engine was changed from white metal bearings to shell bearings. An open car, the B24 Spider, was introduced at this time (1954 to 1955) and was well received. It was similar to the B20 coupé mechanically, with an 8 inch (203 mm) shorter wheelbase than the coupé. The fourth series cars were the first Aurelias to be available in left-hand drive; fourth series Aurelias were the first ones to be imported to the US in any number.

This superb Aurelia GT is handsomely finished in anthracite silver with a red leather interior and a light grey headlining, it is also fitted with a Nardi steering wheel. The car received a thorough restoration both cosmetically and mechanically. The engine, gearbox, drivetrain, brake system and the de Dion back axle were completely overhauled.

There is a photographic documentation to substantiate the work carried out. Ready to participate in the most important historical motor events such as the famous and exclusive Mille Miglia, Monte Carlo Historic grand prix or Tour Auto; this most sought after series IV Lancia Aurelia GT is not to be missed. During its production in the 1950’s the car was slightly more expensive than a 300 SL and nearly twice the price of a Ford Thunderbird.
It is most likely that prices will go up further on these fantastic Italian automobiles, so it’s a good investment too, apart from the fun it will provide to its fortunate new owner.

Dieser Wagen wurde in antrazit silber-grau lackiert und besitzt eine rote Lederausstattung, einen hellgrauen Dachhimmel und ein Nardi Holzlenkrad. Der Wagen wurde aufwändig restauriert, was sowohl die Karosserie, als auch die Mechanik betrifft. Motor, Getriebe, Fahrwerk, Bremsen und die de Dion Hinterachse wurden überholt wovon eine Foto – Dokumentation Zeugnis gibt.

Dieser Wagen kann an den Prestige – trächtigsten historischen Motor – Veranstaltungen teilnehmen und kostete bei seiner Produktion etwas mehr als ein 300 SL in Deutschland. Sicher ein gutes Investment im gegenwärtigen Markt.
