Lancia received a bad blow. It is for sure that more contemporary examples stores a history of rampant reliability woes and rusting and even before that they were racing cars. Before all the Lancia proved that they were one of the makers of truly gorgeous and reliable cars. Vehicles like the 1967 Flamina Super Sport with the aluminum body were decorated by the exceptional styling acumen of Zagato. The Petrolicous team took this vehicle for their latest discussion.Photo 1: LANCIA
The last words about the Zagato styling is significant because Zagato is known for producing design of another level which scales attractiveness in several degrees. The Flamina of 1967 was gorgeous to look at. The C-pillar kink which appears to be a striking version of the famous Hofmeister kink, of BMW and it is truly a great piece of work. Further down the Kammback rear end is stylish and the headlights is recessed subtly making Flamina to look great from every conceivable angle.
The Flamina under its belly nurtures a 2.8 L V6 incorporated with a three two-barrel carbs from Weber and this according to Robert Giaimo, the owner would help the car to cruise while travelling at a speed of 100 miles per hour. This particular car is from the batch of 150 Flamina Super Sports manufactured in the last leg of its continuity in production.
