Lancia Flaminia 2.5 3C Touring GT 1963 LHD The proof that with the Flaminia top-range model Lancia aimed for the customers with excellent taste is the fact that apart from the standard 4-door saloon model several coachbuilt versions were available on a shortened chassis. Although these short-chassis coachbuilt variants (Pininfarina, Touring , Zagato) were more expensive they nevertheless outsold by far the 4-door saloon! This short-chassis Touring GT variant was certainly considered as the most elegant version on the Flaminia theme because 1.550 were sold. The previous Aurelia model had set the tone demonstrating a for its time ultra-modern technical concept in combination with a very stylish coachbuilding. The Flaminia maintained the same base but was fitted with a more modern independant front suspension. The other strong points were the transaxle disposition of the all aluminium V6 engine in the front and gearbox + differential in the back ensuring a perfect 50/50 weight distribution. The body- lines of the Touring GT were not only superbly nicely balanced, the aluminium skin over steel tubes Superleggera construction simply was "state of the art" coachbuilding. Chassis 824.10-3611 was during many years the property of the director of the Ospedale di Montechiari in Nothern Italy. When he died the widow donated the Flaminia to the mechanic who had taken care of the Flaminia's maintenance all these years. Our classic car workshop replaced the inner and outer sills, known to be a delicate area on this model, and re-upholstered the beautiful original leather seats with new internal foam and straps. I think that this Flaminia Touring GT in "Newmarket Grey" and cognac leather interior, is an absolute beauty! She demonstrates the perfect combination of originality and good health! Mechanically this Flaminia has a very sweet character on the road but, if necessary, thanks to the 140 HP from the 3C tuned 2.5 litre V6 has quite some "panache" available under the bonnet also. The Lancia Flaminia Touring Coupé is until today a somehow forgotten superb Italian Gran Turismo.
