The Lancia Beta Montecarlo is a mid-engined sports car which was produced from 1975 through to 1982. Cars from 1975 to 1978 were known as Lancia Beta Montecarlos and the latter cars produced from 1979 to 1982, simply as Lancia Montecarlos. Both series were offered in coupé and spyder versions and were constructed by Pininfarina. Total production amounted to 3,835 first series Beta Montecarlos and 1,940 second series.
This is an opportunity to purchase a lovely left hand drive Lancia Beta Montecarlo Spyder originally registered in Southern Italy. Having covered a little over 48,000 kilometres, it was purchased by the current owner, an enthusiastic car collector in Germany in 2014. The car formed part of his collection and was maintained by his full time mechanic. Described by the vendor as in good condition, it is rust and accident free. With a powerful engine, it comes supplied with German registration documents and a valid German TUV, the equivalent of the MoT test certificate. Finished in Azzurro Blue with a contrasting red interior, this really is a splendid car to have fun with in the summer months ahead. Surely these spirited sports cars can only appreciate in value.
