1951 Lancia Aurelia GT
Lancia’s Aurelia GT was one of the most ground-braking and important cars of its era. The 75hp 1,991cc dual overhead cam V-6 engine was like non-other. Paired up with the for-speed manual rear-mounted transaxle and independent four-wheel suspension made this car ahead of its time.
This early Aurelia GT claims a number of benchmarks of rarity. Being one of the pre-production B20 examples and one of the very small number of cars to have been constructed by Vioti within the early run of 90 cars. This chassis is likely one of the earliest surviving B20’s examples. This Aurelia was restored around the year 2000 with a full body strip/repaint, interior and mechanical rebuild. All this work was performed by Gianna Sala, of Reggio Emilia. After the 2014 sale the Lancia underwent a color change along with an interior upgrade. Full documentation of the restoration process and paperwork to match the cars history makes this GT a great buy at $219,000.
