The most outrageous yet least acknowledged Lancia Zagato was the 1.8 litre Flavia. Designed by Ercole Spada, Zagato's main man of the era, it possessed some earlier Zagato styling cues, such as the windows into the roofline, which echoed the Panoramic Fiats of the early fifties. It was streamlined, but Zagato did not work with a wind tunnel, they worked by feel, drew the car up on a full sized board and then started hammering.
Once on the road, it was tested with the traditional tuft-of-cloth method. Prior to the construction of a larger facility in the late 1960s, Zagato worked primarily in aluminum, and the quest for saving weight carried over into the interior and even the paint which was applied sparingly, in two or three very thin coats. The interiors were also thin, particularly the vinyl, dashboards were hammered out of slim aluminum, and often not covered with anything but crackle finish paint.
This car has been fully restored, the body, paint, interior, engine with pistons, liners, clutch have all been renewed, only the dashboard and center console have been kept original. Offered in superb condition, one of only 25 cars built in RHD for the world, full aluminium body, original logbook+V5 a lot of history, manuals, parts book, magazine report including a one page interview of a previous owner in Classic and sport car magazine registration number is MMV1C since new.
