The Lancia Flaminia was Lancias flagship model at that time, replacing the Aurelia. It was available throughout its lifetime as sedan, coupe, cabrio, and a stretched limousine model was even created for official service. The Flaminia (save for the sedan) was a coachbuilt car with bodies from the most prestigious Italian coachbuilders. The demise of this model in 1970 left a void only filled by Lancia Gamma in 1976. With only 12.633 sold over 13 years, the Flaminias were truly exclusive and unique cars, and are very rare collectibles now. Interestingly, coupes outsold the 4-door variant by far, even in spite of shorter production run and coachbuilt bodies.

The Flaminias chassis was a development of the Aurelias, but was significantly upgraded. Most importantly, the front suspension was independent, with double wishbones, coil springs, telescopic shock absorbers, and an anti-roll bar. The rear suspension retained the De Dion setup, with a transaxle mounted at the rear as in the Aurelia. In the beginning, the Flaminia came with drum brakes, but discs were substituted after the initial 500 cars were built.

The body was developed by Pininfarina and previewed by the Aurelia-based Florida prototypes. While the Florida I, presented at the 1956 Turin Motor show, was a sedan with suicide doors, the Florida II, presented a year later at the Salon International de l'Auto in Geneva, was a coupe, and became Battista Farinas personal car of choice. The final production Lancia Flaminia was also shown in 1957.

The Coupe was penned by Pininfarina, and built by the coachbuilder. It was very similar to the Florida II prototype with a 2+2 layout and had a shortened wheelbase, as all 2-door versions. The Coupe has a front nearly identical to the Berlina, but the headlight frames are completely round, whereas they point slightly upwards in the sedan. Only 4.151 Coupes with the 2.5 litre engine were built until 1967.

Known History

This Coupe was imported to The Netherlands in the late eighties. The car has been resprayed once and there is a new replaced Connoly leather interior. It all looks fine, the car is in a good maintained condition. Lot's of invoices of work done in the last years. The valuation report of August 2008 gives a nowadays selling price at 32.000,00 EUR due to the good condition of the car. Well, we think 25.000,00 EUR is a good price now.
