Known History

In the late fifties, the Flaminia saloon was the "flagship" of the Lancia collection. This automobile was made for a wealthy clientele who enjoyed both modernist elegance and advanced technology. This vehicle was at the forefront of the technological advances of the time, as demonstrated by the innovative technical solutions adopted for its construction. It avails of independent front suspension with coil springs, telescopic shock absorbers, disc brakes, and a transaxel gearbox for superior balance. The Flaminia, more expensive than a Jaguar or a Mercedes, was synonymous with the refined and elegant lifestyle of the elite. The friendship between the new owner of Lancia, Carlo Pesenti and Gaetano Ponzoni the Executive Director of Touring, was instrumental in bringing the coupe and convertible versions of the Flaminia to Touring (which were distributed directly by the Lancia network). The convertibles, as the coupe cars, are of a rare elegance, and are undoubtedly one of Carlo Felice Bianchi Anderloni?s masterpieces. Alongside the extremely accomplished design, is the refinement of an unusual construction, possible due to the renowned skill of Touring?s own craftsmen, who were in a league of their own.

 

 

The car presented here is the 80th Lancia Flaminia 2.8 L convertible ever produced. It has a white and black leather interior, and a beautiful original patina. Jean Serre was a great connoisseur of the Lancia brand, an enthusiast of both the B20 and the Flaminia, whose build quality and technological advancements he so admired. This car came into Jean Serre?s collection in the 1970s, and was subsequently used for his summer holidays in the Auvergne region. The owner?s nephew remembers that fifteen years ago the car was working well, however it was later transferred to a garage, where it still stands today, as the clutch was stuck. The car today is in its original, and extremely interesting condition. The interior and the original plastic carpets demonstrate that this car has been very well preserved within the Serre collection for over forty years.
