1965 Lancia Flaminia Zagato Super Sport (LHD)

Price: £295,000

For nearly 20 years from 1950 onwards, Lancia continued their tradition of innovation and engineering excellence, and were arguably at the height of their powers in car design. The Aurelia B20GT, featuring the world’s first production V6 engine, was loved by both racers and wealthy industrialists.

The Flaminia that succeeded it was a further development of the front-engined V6, rear transaxle theme. Bodied in four distinct styles, it was the Zagato variant that delivered the most powerful performance and arguably the most desirable styling. The final Zagato iteration was the Super Sport, featuring heavily revised bodywork, and boasting three 40 DCN Weber carburettors mounted on a strengthened 2.8-litre version of the V6 engine, producing 152bhp. It also featured all-independent front suspension and disc brakes all round. Only 150 examples were produced.

This particular Super Sport has its original 2.8 litre engine, and upgrades including adjustable Zagato-style seats with lumbar support, custom stainless steel exhaust system with s/s headers, Amadori-style 15” magnesium alloy wheels, auxiliary electric fan, and a dynator (uprated alternator that looks like a dynamo). The braking system has been largely rebuilt with upgraded front callipers.

The car has been with its current fastidious owner since 2003. Under his stewardship it has been enthusiastically rallied around Europe and fully maintained regardless of cost. We have looked after the car for the last 3-4 years.

On the road, the torquey V6 makes life easy for driver and passenger alike. It is smooth and quiet, and this beautifully maintained example is clearly a good long-distance GT. The rev-counter reads to over 6500rpm, giving the car a top speed of over 2000km/h, and the evenly spaced, close-ratio gears allow the enthusiastic Lancia driver to work the sophisticated engine to the max.

The car will be sold  complete with original seats, original trim, original (steel) wheels, original radio and wooden dash fascia. Originally restored in the 1990s it is a wonderful example of the combination of Lancia engineering and Zagato coachbuilding.

Any inspection invited.
