Description

Designed by Antonio Fessia to replace the Lancia Appia and named after Via Fulvia, the Roman road leading from Tortona to Torino, the new Lancia was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963 and manufactured in three variants: Berlina 4-door saloon, 2-door Coupé, and Sport, an alternative fastback coupé designed and built by Zagato on the Coupé floorpan.
Fulvias are notable for their role in motorsport history, including winning the International Rally Championship in 1972. On testing a Fulvia in 1967, Road & Track summed it up as “a precision motorcar, an engineering tour de force”.
We understand this Fulvia Berlina was once the property of Pope John Paul I who used the car to commute around Rome in the 1970s. With 67,000 kms and finished in grey with a black interior, this is a well preserved example with room for further improvement.
Offered at No Reserve on 18th May 2019 at Chiswick House.
