Unrestored Pininfarina Designed Flaminia Coupe, Equipped With The 2.5-Liter V6 and Offered With ASI Certification, Original Tool Kit, and Original Registration Docs. Seller Asking: €37,000 The Lancia Flaminia is a luxury flagship car produced by the Italian manufacturer between 1957 and 1970. Named after the ancient Roman road from Rome to Rimini, the Flaminia was available in multiple body styles designed and built by some of Italy’s most legendary coachbuilders. Although many aspects of the Flaminia were based on the outgoing Aurelia, significant changes were made under the car, including a whole new front suspension with double wishbones and coil springs. With more than 12,600 Flaminias produced over the car’s 13-year run, it bucked the trend in Italy, with the coupe outselling the sedan by a significant margin. This 1960 Lancia Flaminia Coupe is a beautiful unrestored example that has been carefully preserved over the last 63 years by just three owners. Finished in an attractive shade of smoke gray, the Flaminia coupe’s Pininfarina body is the epitome of 1960s Italian elegance with its combination of straight lines and gentle curves. The rear end is a stunning design, with spire-like triangular tail lights sitting on a pair of short fender fins that then carry into the roof, creating a uniquely inset rear window. Even the wheels are covered in a set of classic disc-style hubcaps that feature numerous stepped layers and have tremendous depth compared to other hubcaps of the time. On the inside, the seats are covered in soft oatmeal cloth and comprise a pair of bucket seats up front and a bench in the rear. The interior is outstandingly simple, yet every element is carefully thought through, not just to do its job but to look beautiful. The speedometer in itself is a work of art, with a simple typeface to tell your speed, and on the inner ring, 4 auxiliary gauges that show oil temperature, fuel level, water temperature, and oil pressure. This turns what would be a rather basic gauge into a dial that looks like a fine chronograph watch, and everything is expertly implemented. Powering the Flaminia is Lancia’s famous V6- well known for being the first-ever V6 in a production car. In this Flaminia, the V6 displaces 2,500cc, features a single downdraft carburetor, and is rated at 117 horsepower. This engine is known for its mechanical sophistication and racecar-like noise when uncorked. Connected to the engine is a 4-speed manual transaxle mounted in the rear of the car. This makes for excellent weight distribution and neutral handling when enjoying a drive on your favorite back road. Even with its beautiful design, elegant interior, and technically advanced mechanicals, the Flamina Coupe remains an under-appreciated classic and a true value in the collector car world. This Flaminia coupe is offered with ASI Historical Certification, original registration documents, original Italian license plates, original tool kit, and jack- all uncommon accessories typically lost to time. This is an exceptional example, given its overall originality and condition throughout, and it will be a wonderful addition to any garage.
