Description

The Lancia Fulvia, a compact sports car produced by the Italian manufacturer Lancia from 1963 to 1976, remains a quintessential icon of automotive design and engineering prowess. Launched as a successor to the Lancia Appia, the Fulvia quickly established itself as a benchmark for performance, handling, and innovation within its class.

Its compact dimensions concealed a robust and advanced engineering package, including a narrow-angle V4 engine, front-wheel drive, and independent suspension – features that were cutting-edge for its time. The V4 engine was mounted longitudinally, contributing to the Fulvia’s exceptional balance and handling characteristics.

Despite its modest displacement, the Fulvia was a spirited performer both on the road and on the racetrack. It excelled in rallying, with notable successes in events like the Monte Carlo Rally and the International Rally Championship. The Fulvia HF (High Fidelity) variants, developed by Lancia’s competition department, boasted enhanced performance and handling, making them formidable contenders in motorsport. Its success in rallying further cemented Lancia’s reputation for building cars that combined agility, reliability, and speed.

Beyond its racing accolades, the Lancia Fulvia left an indelible mark on automotive culture. Its timeless design, engineering sophistication, and spirited performance endeared it to enthusiasts and collectors alike. Over the years, it has garnered a loyal following, with numerous enthusiast clubs dedicated to its preservation and celebration. Its influence can also be seen in subsequent Lancia models and in the wider automotive industry, where its innovative features and design elements continue to inspire.

The Fulvia we have on offer is an outstanding 2 owner example with original mileage of 73547km. Finished in its original optional Silver paintwork over black leather, it makes for a simple yet stunning specification. It comes with all its original books and manuals as well. The car has received some light restoration work to bring it up to standard, making it a very presentable and neat car. Its enduring legacy serves as a reminder of a bygone era when cars were more than mere transportation – they were works of art, passion projects, and symbols of progress.
