The Lancia Fulvia Coupe is the one that everyone really wants today. Yes, the Berlina is a great drive and an engineering masterpiece, but it really can't compare with its two-door cousin for desirability. It was introduced in and sported timeless styling by Piero Castagnero, based on a wheelbase that's 150mm shorter than the Berlina. The coupe shared no exterior panels with the saloon. At launch it also benefited from the larger 1216cc engine, which packed an impressive 80bhp at 6000rpm. Performance was hugely improved over the 1.1-litre saloon; and even more so, when it was upgraded to a 90bhp 1290cc power unit later in its life. Handling was known for its precision and neutrality, a point devastatingly proved in motor sport with the more potent HF.
Styled after Monte Carlo, this exciting example is presented in red and black with a black interior. Residing within a private collection for the past 15 years, the car has recently been fully serviced which included the head and the valves being redone, and the carburettors overhauled. The car comes with its Italian documents. These are fun sports cars to drive and rare to find in this condition.
