The Turin Motor Show in 1954 was an opportunity to present the new Lancia Aurelia B12, a true flagship with an interior with attention to the smallest detail that epitomized the best of the experiences gained up to that point on the mid-top saloon of the Turin manufacturer.
The bodywork of the B12 was subjected to a series of tweaks that significantly changed its appearance compared to the B10 sedan with the adoption, in particular, of a new variant of the 6-cylinder V for a total displacement of 2266 cm3.
Power dropped from the B22's 90hp to the new model's 87hp (at 4800rpm), resulting in a reduction in top speed to 151km / h.
The rear suspension with independent wheels with oblique arms, adopted on the Aurelia B10, B21 and B22, was replaced on the B12 by a De Dion solution, while the opening for the emergency crank starting, characteristic of the versions, had disappeared from the grille. with rear independent wheels. Inside, the dashboard stood out, now painted in black and redesigned, with only the speedometer in front of the driver's eyes and the clock in the center of the dashboard, with anti-reflective lid.
The Aurelia B12 did not have the success that was expected despite his validity characterized perhaps by an all too sporty behavior, which went out of production in 1955 and was replaced two years later, by the splendid and unforgettable Flaminia that conquered without difficulty ,Lancia enthusiasts.
