The Attractions

The Flaminia was Lancia's flagship model, the ultimate expression of the company's typical innovation and sophistication and a highly prestigious car destined for the most affluent clientele.
Only a few examples of the convertible model were made by Touring, adding the allure of open-air driving to Lancia's advanced technical features. Only 687 cars with 2.5-litre engines like this one were produced.
It is finished in metallic grey, one of the most desirable colours for this model, combined with a red leather interior. Restored in the 1980s and 1990s to a high standard and maintained with great care thereafter, it is in excellent condition. According to the seller, a respected classic car expert, it does not need any work. Its history and characteristics are verified by FIVA and ASI certificates.
This is a truly remarkable example of one of the most beautiful cars ever produced in Italy, made even more desirable by the particularly desirable colour scheme.

When admiring this fascinating cabriolet, one cannot help but consider it one of the most prestigious and important cars ever produced by the Italian automotive industry. Indeed, this car combines Lancia's refined technology with Touring's legendary 'Superleggera' construction technique, which on this example are further enhanced by the coveted Grigio Metallizzato colour scheme.
It is presented in excellent condition both inside and out. We have been informed that this car was restored in the 1980s and 1990s, and the restoration work was visibly carried out with great care and skill, as this Flaminia has stood the test of time very well. It is made even more attractive by the attention paid to every detail, from the interior true to original specification to the Touring vinyl floor mat in the boot.

The Mechanics

  • Lancia V6 engine of 2.458cm³ developing 135 hp
  • Three carburettors
  • Manual gearbox with 4 gears plus reverse
  • Rarely used and very well preserved
  • The seller has informed us that the car is in excellent condition
  • We were also informed that the car does not need any mechanical intervention
Under the long bonnet of this convertible is Lancia's sophisticated 2.5-litre V6, mated to a manual gearbox. Touring only made 687 cabriolets equipped with this engine.
The Tipo 824 convertibles were fitted with three carburettors, allowing the remarkable output of 135 hp, only slightly less than the 160 hp delivered by the 2.8-litre engine.
The mechanics of this car were completely restored in the 1980s and 1990s and afterwards it was rarely driven and always received regular maintenance. The seller, a specialist in high-end classic cars, has informed us that it works properly and requires no intervention.
