Looking at this elegant Coupé any classic car connoisseur will agree that the very advanced engineering and purity of design of this SIII Lancia Aurelia are just impossible to ignore. Apparently the SIII combines all the best features on the Aurelia, which are the very advanced all round independant suspension (later series have a De Dion rear axle) and the powerful 2,5 liter V6 engine, which turns this SIII into the Aurelia with the best power to weight ratio and the most sporty one to drive. This particular SIII Aurelia was used in the early period of her life as a fast sports-Coupé for Italians smuggling cigarettes from Switzerland to Italy. During one of these trips this Lancia was seized by customs and remained 20 years in storage. The Italian autorities finally sold it, for this reason low milage Aurelia, at auction in 1974 to an enthusiast of Brescia who participated with his Aurelia at the 1983 and 1987 Mille Miglia. During that period a for Italians very much appreciated ASI Targa D'Oro certificate was obtained. Chassis B20-2733, is still in a kind of charming original condition and with what is believed an original milage of only 51.000 Km, resides now since a couple of years in Belgium. The charm and attraction of this Lancia Aurelia is so strong that a very enthusiast customer of mine and top-politician in Belgium bought this Aurelia on first sight and on the spot. Better even, he did manage to get this Aurelia accepted for the 2010 Mille Miglia to which this Aurelia participated. We did executed a full clutch rebuild and, because here and there some paint cracks became apparent, at this very moment this Aurelia benefits from a full respray from the bare metal onwards. .
