This Lancia Aurelia Outlaw is Probably the Best Restomod We’ve Ever Seen
The Lancia Aurelia was a car built in the 1950s before it was replaced by the more modern Flaminia. The most famous example is a racing version of the car that was based on the B20 two-door GT and competed in the Mille Miglia (where it came second overall in 1951), won its class at Le Mans the same year, and it was also raced in the Carrera Panamericana. Now, there’s a new model in the spotlight as it has been the subject of a rather extensive restomod.
Remember the Lancia Fulvia Concept unveiled back in 2003? According to sources in Italy this concept will go into production under the name of "Aurelia" and a first preview of the production version will be made this September at the Paris Motor Show.
The design will be inspired by the concept, but the production version will be built on Mk2 Fiat Punto platform, same used for the Alfa Romeo’s Mito hatch. Although this chassis is based on the current Punto, its A-pillar design has been expensively re-engineered to make cleaner rooflines more feasible.
Regarding its body, there are two kind of rumors: some say will be engineered with a folding hard-top; others say it will be a regular coupe. But, we will need to wait and see.
