Description

The Lancia Flavia was developed by Professor Antonio Fessia in the late 1950’s, and introduced for sale in the UK in 1961. Initially available only as a four-door saloon, it featured a 1.5L aluminium boxer engine, Dunlop disc brakes on all four wheels, front-wheel drive and front suspension by unequal-length wishbones. This model was soon joined by a two-door coupé, designed by Pinninfarina on a shortened platform. Vignale built 1,601 two-door convertibles, while Zagato designed an outlandish-looking light weight two-door sport version. The sport version has twin carburetors for extra power (just over 100 hp/75 kW); however, this version of the engine was notoriously difficult to keep in tune.

Later development of the engine included an enlargement to 1.8L, a mechanical injection version using the Kugelfischer system, and a five-speed manual gearbox. Towards the end of the 1960’s, when Fiat took control of the company, the Vignale and Zagato versions were discontinued.

This Lancia Flavia 1,8 Pinninfarina Coupé was imported from Italy. It benefits from an extensive restoration of the engine and the body including new paint. This 2 + 2-seater coupe impresses with its wonderful driving performance and its timeless color combination “bianco / blue azzuro”. It has been driven just 50 km since it’s restoration.. A perfect coupe to enjoy the “Dolce Vita”
