Known History

Manufactured between 1934 and 1937 in the small factory in Bonneuil-sur-Marne, the Lancia Belna was none other than the Augusta's French version. Genuinely modern with its self-supporting bodywork, its 4-cylinder V engine and technical sophistications that characterised this make, it remains to date a particularly enjoyable model to drive.

This specific example was purchased in 1988 by its current owner who was back then a Lancia dealer; its previous proprietor happened to also be a distributor of this make. Its full restoration started in the mid-90s: the engine and gearbox were completely refurbished in Italy, while the bodywork was fully stripped down and repainted. The quality of the work is perfectly measured by the condition of the car 20 years later. The upholstery was also completely redone and according to its original specifications, with a sheet ordered in Italy. Naturally, the running gear and electric system have also been restored. Completed in the early 2000s, this Belna was barely driven since and would need to benefit from an overall check-up before taking the road again. Definitely rarer than the Augusta, the Belna is an unusual and refined automobile with modern handlingů an accessible pre-war car which deserves the attention of enthusiasts.
