From 1957 to 1970, the Lancia Flaminia, in all of its variations, was the flagship of the Lancia marque. Especially rare was the Flaminia GT coupé – bodied by Carrozzeria Touring of Milan, these Superleggera aluminum bodied cars epitomized the luxury grand tourer of Italian fame.

Lancia had long been known for its technological innovations and by the time the Flaminia GT was introduced, many of these developments had been refined with previous options now as standard. The 2.5L V6 from the B24S had been updated to now produce 119bhp. The rear-mounted transaxle contained synchros on all four gears as well as inboard disc brakes – a major improvement over the previous drums. Also gone was the sliding pillar front suspension in favor of a more modern and better handling double wishbone and coil spring arrangement. All of this meant that one could now easily – and safely – attain speeds well over 100mph in pure comfort and sophistication. The GTL (seen here) was stretched slightly over the GT to allow for two rear seats. The majority of the GTL cars also featured the (again) up-rated V6 (now 2.8L) which, in 3C spec was now good for 150bhp. The GTL was otherwise unchanged from the GT Coupe.

This particular Example has been off of the road since the late 90’s. It was parked in northern California for some time before being relocated to New Mexico where it was aquired form its previous owner. This car has undergone $28,000(Parts and Labor) in recent maintenance  including an engine-out service and a complete brake overhaul (all new NLA parts).
