|Odometer reading||81,452 miles|
|Estimate||£79,000 - £92,000|
Introduced in 1957, the Flaminia was Lancia's flagship model at that time, replacing the Aurelia. It was available throughout its lifetime as saloon, coupé and cabriolet. The Flaminia coupé and convertible were coachbuilt cars with bodies from several prestigious Italian coachbuilders. The aluminium bodied cabriolet and coupés from Touring of Milan were considerably more expensive than the Berlina models but the designs epitomised the style and design flair of the finest motoring designers of their time. A total of 1,550 2.5 Litre GT Coupés were built by Carozzeria Touring between 1957-62, making them somewhat exclusive in their day. With double wishbones, coil springs and shock absorbers featuring on the new model, the cars performance was nimble and the ride comfort was superior to much of the competition. The Flaminia was named after the "Via Flaminia", a road leading from Rome to Ariminum (Rimini). This respected the established Lancia tradition of naming individual models after Roman roads.
