The Lancia Flaminia Zagato Sport brought together two of the oldest and most respected names in the Italian motor industry. The resulting combination, particularly in the Super Sport variant that we now offer for sale. This model was the final development of the Lancia and is a fitting tribute to both companies. Zagato became famous from the 1920s for building elegant, lightweight sporting bodies, most often seen on six and eight cylinder supercharged Alfa Romeos and again, after the war, on competition versions of Alfa Romeo, Maserati and occasionally Ferrari chassis. Zagato bodied cars have become keenly sought after by collectors both sides of the Atlantic.
The Zagato Sport body work, first introduced in 1959, was mounted on a shortened version of the Flaminia chassis with typical Zagato weight saving and aerodynamic features, the cars weighing only around 1300 kgs, despite their very strong mechanical construction. By 1962 the 3c variant with triple, twin choke Weber carburettors was introduced leading to the final Super Sport version, as offered here, with 2.8-litre engine, larger 40 DCN Webers, 152 bhp and much improved torque, as well as a re-styling of the body by Ercole Spada (well known as the designer of the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato) and a truncated Kamm tail.
The Super Sport was capable of over 210 kph, with its close ratio gearbox giving speeds of 70, 90 and 160 kph in the gears. Lancia were so confident of the engine's reliability that there was no red line on the rev counter which reads to over 6,500 rpm!
Our car, beautifully presented in Dark Grey Metallic with Red Hide interior, comes from the previous ownership of a well-known European Lancia collector. No effort or cost has been spared to bring it to peak mechanical condition over the last eighteen months. Work has recently been carried out for over £25,000 by well-known restoration specialist Jim Stokes Workshops Limited & Lancia specialist Omicron Engineering Limited. Works included a complete overhaul of the brakes, front suspension, carburettors, dynamo, starter motor and electrics with original new parts fitted as necessary.
Five new original size and pattern Pirelli Cinturato tyres and a new fuel pump and battery have also been fitted.
This is a unique opportunity to acquire such a rare and outstandingly well sorted Super Sport Flaminia Zagato model of which only150 examples were ever built. £149,995.00
