It is absolutely obvious to any classic Lancia enthusiast that this Bertone designed B52 is a very rare Aurelia variant of which only a few were produced. Connoisseurs will remember that this very car was exhibited at the 1952 Torino motorshow and participated that year at a few international concours d'elegance of which charming photographs in presence of an elegant female model can be found in the period motoring litterature. An element that makes this Lancia even more unique is the fact that she has covered over all these years only 2.670 Km. from new! Yes, not even properly run-in...! Inspecting this Lancia inside out confirms this story convincingly. Looking at the somptuous original interior one understands immediately the very low milage of this rare Aurelia. Seeing is believing! The fantastic dashboard combination of beautiful instruments and exotic amber knobs + chrome detailing, the period Autovox radio and stylish Bertone logo on the glove-box and a nicely decorated unmarked steering wheel turn this dashboard into one of the most beautiful dashboards I have ever seen in a fifties European car. The original, very firm feeling, seats covered with impeccable original cloth nicely finished with leather strips and typical nets (for road-maps) in the door-panels and cords at the back of the front seats for the comfort of the rear passengers make it very clear this luxurious cabin was hardly used. The typical Lancia rubber mats are undamaged and show no signs of wear and so are the pedal-rubbers. The more vulnerable exterior presentation shows gentle ageing signs on paint and chrome and the same can be said from the engine compartiment. Inspecting the underneath of the car reveals that the original floor panels are still nicely protected by the 50-ies mat black chassis paint with here and there some charming slight surface rust-powder. Trained classic car eyes read this message as a continuous and convincing message: yes only 2.670 Km. Thats all! Ageing signs which are absolutely nothing dramatic and which couldn't be rectified by a talented classic car workshop. On the contrary, maybe best to keep as such just to add to the obvious charm of this very unusual Lancia. Start the engine up and get the chance to experience how it feels to be at the steering wheel of a brand-new Lancia Aurelia. A fantastic sensation only the senior classic car enthusiasts amongst us might remember. Are you ready for the 'new Lancia sensation'? A chance of a lifetime for all Lancia lovers!
