Description

This stunning Lancia was built in Italy and created especially for the 1953 Torino Motor Show by Allemano. Carrozzeria Allemano had been founded in Turin in 1928 by Serafina Allemano, specialising at first in the repair of cars before switching exclusively to design work in the mid-1930s. This Aurelia coupé is the work of its then resident stylist, Giovanni Michelotti, who has made only one of these, and therefore makes this car one of a kind in the whole world.

Michelotti worked for a number of prominent carrozzeria, most notably Vignale where he was chief designer. His design was brought to life by the panel beaters and craftsmen of Carrozzeria Allemano in Turin. Allemano also fabricated bodies for Aston Martin, Ferrari, Fiat and Maserati.

This Lancia Aurelia B53 Coupé is powered by a 1991cc overhead valve V-6 engine and fitted with a four-speed manual gearbox. The bonnet and doors are made from aluminium, the rest of the body is metal. Unique styling features include twin air intakes flanking the grille, and a dramatic profile that ends with sloping rear wings.

This Lancia Aurelia B53 has been completely restored and is in a beautiful state of finish and detail. It has been kept in an excellent state of running tune and is offered with its original Italian registration plates. In conclusion, a very beautifully restored car that is ready to be enjoyed by his new owner.
