Model history

The Lancia Flaminia, named after the Via Flaminia, the road leading from Rome to Rimini, was produced from 1957 to 1970. It was Lancia’s flagship at that time, replacing the Aurelia. Throughout its lifetime it saw various versions as saloons, coupés and cabriolets. Even four stretched presidential limousines were built by Pininfarina for state occasions. The Flaminia coupé and convertible were coachbuilt cars with bodies from several prestigious Italian coachbuilders. The coupé models outsold the four-door Berlina, which was a rare occurrence at the time, considering the coupés were considerably more expensive.

Many regarded the Lancia Flaminia Zagato as Zagato’s best and most balanced design. The Zagato model looked very aerodynamic in aluminium, with headlamps faired into the body and a double bubble roof, when it was displayed at the Lancia stand at the Turin motor show in 1958. The first Flaminia Zagato’s were the most streamlined version, complete with faired-in headlamps. From 1960, vertical lamps were introduced. The sloping tail and round tail-lights blended well with the double bubble roof section, which was so typical of Zagato designs around 1960.

This very rare Righthanddrive Lancia Flaminia Sport Zagato from 1960 is a matching nr. car. According to factory records the car was sent to the Zagato works in June 1960.

After a thorough research we have not yet been able to determine if the RHD conversion was done at Zagato immediately or that she went back as she was sold to Australia.

After some time in Australia the car was sold to Italy. Afterwards to Belgium and the car was featured in the Lancia Bible of Mr W. Oude Weernink. Then still in the colour red. The car then was sold to a customer of ours and collector of Zagato cars in Germany. The current owner bought the car from him a few years ago and decided to strip the car to metal and paint her in what is believed the original colour.

The car has a rare 3 carb setup and shows a very original condition of chassis and bodywork. She seems to have had an easy life. The car is in very nice condition and runs and drives very well. She comes with German papers several pictures from work done and our research file.

Price is Euro 435.000,-
