1953 Lancia Aurelia B20GT Is As Beautiful As They Come

Lancia only made 720 units of the Series III, and this Aurelia B20GT is one of them. It left the factory floor in 1953 and was originally shipped to Italy.

Ten years later, it was imported to the United Kingdom, where it changed hands a few times. In 2009, it was sold to its most recent owner, but by then, time had left its mark on the car.

The classic Aurelia was then subjected to a comprehensive restoration process, which took two years to complete. Over 1,200 hours are said to have been spent on metalwork repairs, rustproofing everything. The vehicle has been finished in the factory-original shade of Amaranto and fitted with cream-colored wheels.

The interior has a light grey look and everything is in perfect condition, including the 2.5-liter V6 engine, developing 118 horsepower, four-speed manual transmission and other mechanical components.

With the project finished, the owner embarked on a 2,000-mile (3,219 km) Alpine trip. Subsequently, the Aurelia was taken in for service, during which a minor oil leak was discovered and, of course, fixed.

Responsible for breathing new life into the car was ThornleyKelham, a British restoration specialist, which is now looking to sell it.

The asking price is £185,000 ($244,577/€215,117), which is enough to purchase not one, but two new BMW M5s in the UK. You could also get a Lamborghini Urus and save some £50,000 ($66,102/€58,140), but this is still a rare classic in perfect condition, whose value will probably go up in the years to come.

    What an elegant car !

    Did they know that they are building such a wonderful art when they first build it in 1953?

  • Six Thousand Times

    Lancia were the pioneers of the V-6. Lovely car. ThornleyKelham did a pretty cool “Outlaw” B20, I think.

  • Mr. EP9

    What a beauty. It’s such a shame Lancia died the way that it did.

    • europeon

      Well, if there is any consolation, Lancia’s executioner met his karma.

    • Degoragon

      Lancia Still exists. They are currently owned by FCA Fiat-Chrysler , and have been a Fiat owned brand since 1967. However, they only currently have one car, the Ypsilon. In a way, it is like the brand died, considering that they only have one car, and they only sell it in a few places.
