Description

Library Photos

The introduction of the Fulvia saloon in 1963 maintained Lancia’s unparalleled reputation for innovation in automobile design. It replaced the rather boxy Appia and featured an all-new, narrow-angle (13-degree) overhead-camshaft V4 engine; front wheel drive; independent front suspension by double wishbones; and disc brakes all round. A 2+2 coupe on a shorter wheelbase was launched in 1965. Though mechanically similar, the newcomer had all the visual presence its progenitor lacked and came with a 1,216cc engine producing 80bhp. Tuned ‘HF’ versions provided increased performance, while for the style conscious there was the eye-catching Sport Zagato, characterised by one of the eponymous Milanese carrozzeria’s typically lightweight and aerodynamic bodies. The shape was penned by Ercole Spada, arguably Zagato’s most important post-war designer, who had forged his reputation for creative brilliance with the iconic Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato of 1960.

Introduced in 1967 with the 1,298cc engine, the Zagato was later offered with the 1.6-litre 115bhp HF unit, a sparkling combination with a top speed approaching 120mph. A five-speed gearbox was standard equipment from 1971. Lighter and more nimble than the standard-bodied cars, the Sport distinguished itself in competition, particularly in long distance events. Fulvia Sport Zagatos scored highly in the Sebring 12 Hours and Daytona 24 Hours (where a Sport earned a class win in 1969). Ex-works HF rally cars aside, the Sport Zagato is the most desirable and collectible of all the Fulvias and undeniably one of the most striking designs of its era.

Finished in its Orange (Lobster) colour, this Fulvia Zagato 1.3S comes with a comprehensive file documenting its restoration. This is a rare RHD example which is iconic in its design and fun to drive.
