Known History

The Lancia Aurelia saw the light of day in the year 1950. The first models introduced were the sedan, stationcar and limousine. According to Lancia traditions the Aurelia again was a hallmark in technical innovation. The car featured a light alloy (aluminium) 60° V6 engine and a gearbox with clutch fitted to the rear axle (Transaxle construction) The Transaxle construction made an ideal weight distribution, on the front and rear axles, possible. The car also featured a unitary bodywork structure.

In the year 1951 the famous Lancia Aurelia sportscar followed: The Lancia Aurelia B20 GT series 1 (first car in the so called GT class).

This magnificent 2+2 coupe model was designed by PininFarina and the design was a revolution in the early fifties of the twentieth century.

The advanced mechanics, the light bodywork and the aerodynamic design made the Aurelia B20 GT a true drivers car.

The car successfully participated in many rally and race events, like the Mille Migla (finished second place) and at Le Mans (finished first in its class).

The first Aurelia B20 GT series were powered by a two litre V6 engine, from 1953 (series 3) a more powerful 2.5 litre V6 was fitted. From 1954 (series 4) a deDion rear axle was fitted which improved the roadholding even more. The Lancia Aurelia B20 GT was built until 1958, the B20 GT series 6 was the last model built.

 

Nowadays the Lancia Aurelia B20 GT is a very much sought after classic car. The cars are very hard to find and expensive. Many proud owners use the cars like they were in "the old days" in racing and rally events like the historic Mille Miglia.
