A lovely and rare foursome drop head from Lancia. The Lancia Augusta Cabriolet is fitted with the well-known, and powerful for its size, narrow angle Lancia 1, 100cc V4. This engine was used to power a variety of smaller Lancia models.
The Lancia Augusta was no ordinary car; it had a monocoque construction, independent sliding pillar front suspension, an overhead cam V4 engine and hydraulic brakes. The Augusta was successful in track events, and were the chosen transport of several leading Italian racing drivers including Tazio Nuvolari who kept one for several years.
WO8978 is a very rare Lancia factory produced drop head cabriolet, designed by Battista “Pinin” Farina, one of his first designs. It has wind up windows and a clever spring loaded hood, which can be erected in seconds. In summer it is a full 4 seat tourer and in the winter with the hood and windows up is as good as any saloon.
The car is a very smart and well sorted car being a regular class and award winner at the VSSC Welsh and Measham Rallies. It won Best Pre-war Car at the 2019 Festival of Transport, and featured in July 2019 Auto Italia.
It has a Certificate of Origin from Classiche Lancia, a FIVA I. D. Card, a ACI Fiche certificate, a VSCC Buff Form, and is registered with the Registro 1000 Miglia meaning she is pre-approved and ready for an entry in the Mille Miglia.
The Lancia engine starts readily and pulls well whilst making all the right Italian noises. A full complement of period instruments are located on the black painted dash board. The Lancia Augusta Cabriolet is finished in burgundy over black paintwork.
To the interior is burgundy leather with matching door cards and maroon carpets. The car is fitted with four newish tyres and also to the rear mounted spare fitted to the spring loaded boot lid. The recently rebuilt wire wheels are equipped with lancia knock off spinner hubs. The Lancia Augusta Cabriolet has had a fairly comprehensive restoration in recent years and has covered few miles since. It is very useable being spacious & providing comfortable seating for four people.
