1967 Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato Hits the Classic Spot


Read more

The lesser known of the Lancia Fulvia family is the Sport 1,3 Zagato, a car built in proper series production numbers – quite atypical for a coach built coupe like this. It really is a special car that doesn’t need high horsepower or even the prettiest of styling to quell your craving for something classic.

1961 Flaminia Convertible Keeps Lancia Flame Burning


Read more

Lancia has all but faded from view with its modern range of cars. They’ve gone so far away from the company’s core values that a Chrysler 300 is now worthy to bear the badge, even though it isn’t, not compared to proper examples of Lancia-ness, like this fine 1961 Flaminia Convertible.

Talk of Lancia being reduced to a single model (Ypsilon) and a single market (Italy) is not new, but it appears that the Italian carmaker is heading very quickly in this direction.

Rare Ferrari-Engined Lancia Thema 8.32 for Sale in Canada [68 Photos & Video]


Read more

Lancia has become an unrecognizable shadow of itself in recent years and the fact that there was no mention about the brand in the Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles' (FCA) product presentation in Detroit earlier this month, fundamentally spells out the death of one of Italy's most historic automakers. While we're still holding out on an obituary, we did take the time to look up some used Lancia's on the web and found this rare Ferrari-engined 1988 Thema 8.32 for sale on eBay.

No Five-Year Plan for Lancia, Fiat Confirms it Will Become an Italy-Driven Brand

If you watched yesterday’s coverage of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ five-year plan you may have noticed that the company outlined strategies for each of its brands, except Lancia.

Lancia Drops New Photos of the Ypsilon Elefantino '14


Read more

Earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, Lancia presented the Ypsilon Elefantino ‘14 Collection, an updated version of the special edition model based on the brand’s B-segment hatchback. Now Lancia has presented the car in Milan at the “Lancia Fashion Apartment”, a location where fashion and design coexist in harmony.

This Cool 1977 Lancia Scorpion was Sold for $5,499


Read more

One lucky buyer managed to snatch this Lancia Scorpion from eBay for $5,499, about $2,500 less than the asking price of $8,000. Built in 1977, the Lancia Scorpion (known in Europe as the Montecarlo) is a very unique-looking and typically Italian car in many respects, some of which are not of the desirable kind…

Lancia’s Geneva Debuts are the Ypsilon Elefantino '14 and Ypsilon ELLE Concept


Read more

As you probably know, Lancia’s destiny is to become an Italy-only brand, with the lineup to be reduced to only one model, the Ypsilon. Nevertheless, at the Geneva Motor Show, Lancia will show two models based on its supermini, the Ypsilon Elefantino ’14 collection and the Ypsilon ELLE show car.

Dying Lancia Brand gets an Ypsilon HF Sports Hatch Render


Read more

If we want to be honest, Lancia is on its very last lifeline, even though parent company Fiat, or shall we say, the FCA group for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, hasn’t placed the stone on the grave yet.

The Italians have decided that, over the coming months, Lancia will shut down all operations outside its home market where it will cling on to dear life with the Ypsilon alone.

1967 Lancia Flaminia Super Sport is a Car You Can Fall in Love With


Read more

With Fiat planning to reduce Lancia to an Italy-only brand with a single nameplate (the Ypsilon), I think we can all agree the brand has no future at all.

Fortunately, Lancia fans can always turn to the brand’s rich past and reminisce about stunning vehicles, such as this Lancia Flaminia Super Sport Zagato from the latest Petrolicious video.

While outrageously powerful AC/Shelby Cobra kit cars are actually pretty common in their respective DIY niche, not all focus on quality and some are downright ridiculous.

You usually still end up spending more than you thought at first if you want a top notch example with a suitable V8 engine, big brakes, proper springs, dampers and suspension bits. An impressively fast example of one is the XCS Fusion 427 pitted by Autocar against a Jaguar XKR-S convertible.

What Do You Say About This Modern Lancia Delta Integrale HF Study?


Read more

The Lancia Delta Integrale needs no presentation, as it is probably the brand’s most fabled mode. Unfortunately, the sorry state in which Lancia is right now doesn’t allow fans to hope for a modern day Delta Integrale, but that doesn’t mean they can’t dream about it.

Second Hand Lancia Thesis 2.0 Turbo for Sale in the USA


Read more

The Lancia Thesis is a weird looking car [ed. note: think beluga whale-weird], especially at a first glance, but once you look beyond the peculiar headlights and very slim rear lights, you’re left with a sleek shape, with bags of room inside and unmistakably Italian styling and design cues throughout.

Rare 1960 Lancia Appia GTE Zagato Can Be Yours for $125,000


Read more

Lancia is at its lowest point in history right now, and that’s a real shame considering the cars it made in the past. Take this 1960 Lancia Appia GTE Zagato for example, one of only 136 ever built. Its stunning looks remind of a beautiful era, when Italy was living “La Dolce Vita” and was enjoying post-war growth and freedom.

Why Annalisa Chose a 1959 Bianchina over a Porsche 911 and an Alfa Duetto


Read more

Imagine your father has a wonderful collection of vintage cars and he invites you to choose one as your daily driver when you turn 18. Which one would you take? A Porsche 911? An Alfa Romeo Spider? Or maybe a more mundane VW Beetle? Well, for the girl who was in this lucky position, the answer was rather different, as she chose a 1959 Bianchina.

Lancia Tries to Justify Frankfurt Trip with Voyager S and Delta MY2014…

Lancia has not been in a good shape for a while now and a quick look at its current range is more than enough to realize why. A special edition model and a very light makeover are the only novelties at Lancia’s Frankfurt Motor Show stand.

We complain all the time that modern cars all look alike, drive alike, share platforms and generally lack any sort of individuality, unless you opt for something bespoke and very expensive.

However, older cars are an approved third way of getting around this problem and placing yourself behind the wheel of a car with character, one which will please you every time you walk towards or away from. In the latter case, making you take that all important last glance you’d never consider doing at your car if it were a blandosaurus like the Toyota Camry.

This Is What It's Like to Live with a Lancia Stratos Every Day


Read more

Owning a Lancia Stratos Stradale has to be quite an experience. It was only built because Lancia had to make street versions of its Stratos rally car to homologate it for the World Rally Championship (WRC).

With that in mind, it should surprise no one that, in terms of quality and build, the road-going Stratos fares poor even when compared to a kit car. That’s because it was only an appendix to the rally Stratos, a car built with only one purpose in mind: to win WRC titles. And indeed it did - in 1974, 1975 and 1976.

Read more

The Lancia Delta HF Integrale is one of the last truly iconic mainstream Italian performance cars. It holds that status because of its immense success in the world of rallying, which it dominated for six years straight after its debut. Road-going Integrales were also highly-appreciated in their day, and now they are highly sought-after modern classics.
