Known History

Introduced at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show, the Flavia Sport, with bodywork by Zagato, stood out at once on account of its unconventional styling. With an aluminium body on a steel structure, it was fitted with a 1.5-litre (later 1.8-litre) flat-four engine, which delivered high performance while retaining Lancia's characteristic mechanical refinement. With standard disc brakes all round, the model found favour in competition in period, on the Coupe des Alpes (with Michèle Mouton) or the Tour de France Automobile.

The model presented here is in exceptionally well-preserved condition. It was registered new in France on 8 October 1965 and then in the Val-de-Marne in 1968. Its current owner found it after it had lain dormant for many years and endeavoured to get it running again, while preserving its condition as best he could. The original engine, cracked by frost, was replaced by another engine which was completely reconditioned in 2018. The braking system was fully restored and the engine mounts and ball joints replaced, as were the shock absorbers and Michelin tyres. A large file of invoices shows the extent of the work. Restoration work was carried out on the underbody: the left front floor panel was replaced and repairs made to the spare wheel well. This work should be continued to meet the latest requirements of the mandatory safety inspection. Only just over 500 of this version were built, making this a rare opportunity to find one in such condition.
