Description

At the 1957 Geneva Motor Show the replacement for the legendary and highly successful Lancia Aurelia was revealed. Named the Flaminia, after a famous Roman road (just as the Aurelia and the Appia had been), it made a profound impression on the automotive world, with its good looks and with Lancia’s traditional quirky and interesting engineering.

The Flaminia body design set the stylistic benchmark for saloon cars for years to come and is perhaps Pininfarina’s most influential work of the era. It was clear that also a Flaminia convertible had to follow, and the answer of course was already staring Lancia management in the eye: the Flaminia GT by Carrozzeria Touring.

Equipped with the desirable triple-carburettor (3C) engine, this Touring-bodied Flaminia 2.8-litre GT is one of only 168 of its type produced compared with over 1,500 of the 2.5-litre version.

This Belgian example, finished in Grigio Metallic with a Tan leather interior, has been with one owner from 1991 until recently. The car has benefitted from an older restoration, supported by documentation and photographs. The Flaminia is said to run well with a lovely patina, although the vendor tells us that the body and paint could benefit from a little attention. Interestingly,  this Flaminia is fitted with a very special sliding sunroof, an exceptionally rare and desirable option, and one we have not seen before.

It’s exciting to see an example of this rare quick and stylish model, and with prices of contemporary Touring-bodied Astons now in the region of 600-700,000, this delightful Italian GT presents a wise choice for the smart investor.

Equipée du moteur triple carburateur (3C), cette Touring-bodied Flaminia 2,8 litres GT est l’une des seules 168 de cette type produite par rapport à plus de 1500 de la version de 2,5 litres.

 

Cette exemple belge, a terminée en Grigio métallisé avec un intérieur en cuir Tan, a été avec un propriétaire de 1991 jusqu›à récemment. La voiture a bénéficié d›une restauration plus ancienne, soutenue par la documentation et des photographies. Le Flaminia est dite de courir bien avec une belle patine, bien que le vendeur nous dise que le corps et la peinture pourraient bénéficier d’un peu d’attention. Fait intéressant, cette Flaminia est équipée d’un toit ouvrant coulissant très spécial, une option exceptionnellement rare et souhaitable, et celui que nous n’avons pas vu auparavant.

 

Il est passionnant de voir un exemple de cette modèle rapide et élégante et rare, avec des prix de Touring-bodied Astons contemporaine entre  600 et 700 000, cette charmante GT italienne présente un choix judicieux pour l’investisseur intelligent.
