Description

Italian registration Engine # 30593 - Beautifully preserved - Pioneering technology - Two owners from new, original registration The main peculiarity of this Lancia Aprilia is that it is secondhand, which is remarkable for a car of this age! Sold new to Mr Ennio Siana, its Libretto was remade in 1966 with the move to its new owner, but the car retained its original registration from Perugia. In 1972, the car was transferred from Ennio Siana to our collector. Today, it comes in a very satisfactory condition and will need just a service, before hitting the road. It also has its Foglio complementare from the period. On the Aprilia, which attracts immediately is the rear, which has a very special profiling, made famous by the pursuit of Tintin behind the terrible Professor Muller (Tintin in the Land of Black Gold). More seriously, the car was designed by Vincenzo Lancia for excellent aerodynamics. On the technical side, the Aprilia went even further than the Augusta, which it replaced with a four-wheel independent suspension in addition to its unibody (monocoque) construction with doors that opened vis- à-vis. Today, Aprilias are very rare. Buying one that has had only two owners since new is indeed exceptional.
