Get to know the car!
ZagatoCarrozzeria Ugo Zagato & Co was founded in 1919 with an aim to combine Ugo Zagato’s knowledge of sophisticated and lightweight construction techniques in the aeronautical sector with automobile designs. As one of the oldest and most respected of automotive design firms, Zagato was quick to exploit the popularity of the new GT racing category after WW2, supplying factory teams and privateers with road-able cars that could be driven competitively on the racetrack.
FlaminiaIntroduced at the 1956 Turin Motor Show, the Flaminia retained its Aurelia predecessor's mechanical layout, though Lancia's traditional sliding-pillar independent front suspension gave way to a more modern double wishbone arrangement. Aurelia “carry-overs” were the 60-degree, 2,458cc, overhead-valve, V6 engine and De Dion rear transaxle with inboard brakes. The Zagato-bodied Sport and Super Sport models shared a shortened wheelbase with the Touring-styled GT/GTL coupes and the Convertible, and all featured disc brakes and increased power. A 2,775cc engine was introduced for 1963, by which time the sportier Flaminias were capable of around 200km/h (130mph).
OldschoolThis example of old-school Lancia / Zagato design is one of only 205 Flaminia Sports made between 1959 and 1961. A 2.5-litre model equipped with triple carburettors, the car was purchased in France by the current owner in 2006. The body was stripped back to bare metal and completely restored. The restoration was completed circa 2019, since when the Flaminia has formed part of the owner's exclusive collection, being used for various events and tours. The quality of the restoration was so good that it even went to The Master Pieces Concours D’Elegance in 2018 where it achieved an amazing top score and a 100 point rating (20 members in the jury). Even today the car is in a magnificent condition, having benefited from recent regular maintenance.
We are very proud to be offering this exceptionally rare sports car for sale at Historic Competition Services. Finished in grey metallic with contrasting red leather interior, this is a cherished Flaminia Zagato which ticks all the boxes. This car must surely be one of the best of its type in the World, and maybe “the best”
