Lancia

Proof that priceless barn finds are still out there comes from France where elite auction house Artcurial has discovered the automotive equivalent of Tutankhamun’s tomb: 60 cars untouched for 50 years on a French farm included four Ferraris (and yes, a Ferrari California Spider), eight Delahayes, a Hispano Suiza H6B cabriolet Million-Guiet, a Maserati A6G Gran Sports and nine Talbot Lagos including four T26s, one a rare Grand Sport Aérodynamique, another a Saoutchik-bodied cabriolet formerly owned by King Farouk of Egypt. They're all for sale. Read More
MomoDesign has been famous for putting timepieces and custom steering wheels in the hands of the right personalities since 1981. Lancia on the other hand has been an automotive manufacturer with a history of making cars that have not always been awesome, except perhaps in rally form. Put the two in a room together with a bottle of Italian grapes and you get the Lancia Delta S by MomoDesign. This new five-door hatchback offering from the Fiat Group features mostly aesthetic refinements, with a few performance options to back up the makeover. Read More
It’s touted as the biggest and most powerful Lancia ever built, boasting a 1120hp engine, fast, sleek lines, no regard for speed limits and superior Italian breeding through and through.

June 27, 2007 Fiat-owned Italian luxury auto manufacturer Lancia has partnered with MomoDesign to create a designer version of the company’s Ypsilon mini to be known as the Ypsilon Sport MomoDesign which hit the Italian market last week. The most stunning aspect of the car is its 105 bhp 1.3 multijet, 16V engine diesel engine which gives it a top speed of 177 km/h. So what? Well, that makes it faster than you’re legally allowed to drive anywhere, and the low carbon footprint of the vehicle makes you feel like a responsible citizen the while the 4.7 l/100 km fuel consumption will make you feel intelligent. Yes, we know that still means diddly to most people, so how does 60mpg (UK) and 50 mpg (US) sound? Read More
December 5, 2006 To celebrate the centenary of Lancia and the long standing affiliation between the marque and the Milanese coachbuilder for its Sport versions, Andrea Zagato decided to create a Lancia Aprilia Sport identical to the car built by his grandfather Ugo in 1938. This “car of the future” could aptly be described as an original 1930s design brought to life using the technology of the third Millennium. The complicated process did not start from hand drawn sketches, as with today's cars, but from two faded monochrome photographs – the only remaining source of accurate information. Read More
