Known History

The Zagato Sport launched at the Turin Motor Show in 1958 was the third of six versions of the Lancia Flaminia, whose most striking feature was its « double bubble », the double-arched roof characteristic of Zagato. The car had a very aerodynamic appearance for several reasons: the rounded aluminium body, the front lights integrated into the wings and the sloping back of the car with its rounded rear lights. This first version is the rarest and most sought-after, with its perfect body shape curiously ressembling the 250 Berlinetta from behind. Technically, the Zagato Sport models are the same as the Flaminia Touring. The Zagato has a 2.5-litre engine giving 128bhp and this first version is equipped with a triple Solex carburettor.

The car offered was bought by the current owner in Italy a year ago. He was looking for an example that was prepared and ready to take part in the Tour Auto, and this car achieved that successfully, finishing the event without any problems. This pretty and capable Flaminia was prepared fastidiously next to Brescia, and has a faux leather and black velours interior, magnesium wheels and two period bucket seats. This is an very interesting car, being the rare early version and eligible for numerous historic racing events.
