1961 Lancia Flaminia 2500 Touring Convertible - wonderful example For Sale

Model history

The Lancia Flaminia, named after the Via Flaminia, the road leading from Rome to Rimini, was produced from 1957 to 1970. It was Lancia’s flagship at that time, replacing the Aurelia. Throughout its lifetime it saw various versions as saloons, coupés and cabriolets. Even four stretched presidential limousines were built by Pininfarina for state occasions. The Flaminia coupé and convertible were coachbuilt cars with bodies from several prestigious Italian coachbuilders. The coupé models outsold the four-door Berlina, which was a rare occurrence at the time, considering the coupés were considerably more expensive.

Carrozzeria Touring designed and built the aluminum bodied two-door versions of the Flaminia. First offered as a closed two-seater coupe (GT), it became available later as an open two-seater (Convertibile) or a closed 2+2 (GTL) as well. The wheelbase was decreased significantly for the GT and Convertibile, allowing for a maximum of two seats to be mounted. The GTL, introduced in 1962, was a 2+2 version of the GT with a slightly longer wheelbase and a higher roofline.

In 1961, when Pininfarina models were equipped with their 3B 119hp 2. 5 liter engine engine with one triple carburetor, the Touring models gained an induction layout with three double-choke Weber carburetors which raised power to 140hp. The weight reduction of 200kg made possible by the typical Superleggera Touring bodywork with aluminum panels places over a light steel frame helped acceleration.

Touring models can be easily distinguished by their external trademark double headlights and large, triangular tail-lamps. The interior featured two nicely shaped seats and the dashboard of all Touring models was symmetrical in its architecture, with two large-diameter instruments. The Lancia Flaminia Touring looked as elegant as an Italian Sportscars of the sixties could be, owing to an exceptionally low waistline.

The Lancia Flaminia Touring Convertible was in production until 1964. In total, Touring built 2750 cars on the Flaminia chassis and only 421 Lancia Flaminia GT 2500 Touring Convertibles were built.

This example

From 1972, this Lancia was owned by Mr. Martinis from Beaudinard, France. Mr. Martinis kept the car an impressive 27 years. In 1999 the car was exported to the Netherlands. It had a further 2 more owners until our client acquired this elegant convertible in 2010 via VSOC and set out to properly use it.

The current owner is a vivid rally driver and participated five times in the famous Dutch Tulpenrallye with this Lancia. In 2014-2015 the body was professionally repainted at the bodyshop of Martin Dijkhof, famous for his high quality restorations. In 2014 a mechanical overhaul was performed by specialists. The engine was rebuilt and also the gearbox/ transaxle and propshaft.

More recently the car received a big service in February 2020 at our friends at Italauto, costing upwards of 4. 200,- euro.

In total the current owner spent 65. 000 Euro on the car to make and keep her in good shape. The result is very good indeed as it is really lovely and wonderfully running and driving example. The bodywork presents very well and the panel fit is correct. The dark blue paint has just been professionally polished and is very nice.

Furthermore the car comes with a FIVA pasport and a rare factory hardtop which has been restored.

This lovely example Dutch registration and fresh APK (like TUV/ CT/ MOT).

Price is a very competitive 119. 500,- Euro (approximately £108, 500,- at the time of writing). Do ask for our walk around video or more pictures as required.
