The Fulvia Coupé was the most successful model. In fact it was produced without interruption for more than ten years. The bodywork was designed by the stylist Piero Castagnero and the structural engineer Aldo Castagno.

The designers had to commensurate their design of a sports car with strict technical constraints: the use of the platform and the Fulvia engine, a maximum length of 4,000 mm, a weight of 900 kg and a 2 + 2-seater configuration of the passenger compartment to transport small families.

The Coupé was the first Italian car whose design complied with strict rules on passenger safety.

The result of their work was a pleasant car with compact shapes which, somewhat reminiscent of the splendid Riva motorboats, achieved immediate sales success despite the high price to the public.

The front track is 1,300 mm, the rear one is 1,280 mm, the wheelbase is 2,330 mm, shortened by 150 mm compared to the sedan.

To achieve the goal of low weight starting with the Rallye 1.3 version, aluminum doors, bonnet and trunk were used.

The evolution of this car was driven by racing needs. Achieving success in the Rally Championships was one of the primary objectives of the Lancia management, so that despite the difficult financial conditions, the Reparto Corse obtained the opportunity to develop the car.

The series production benefited greatly from the technical innovation derived from the races, in fact the second series was equipped with a 5-speed gearbox, a more efficient braking system (SuperDuplex) and a more reliable electrical system with alternator and halogen headlights.

Unfortunately for cost reasons all the aluminum parts of the bodywork were replaced with as many in steel and a new simpler grille was adopted.

In 1972 the celebratory version of the victory at the Monte Carlo Rally was introduced, with specific colors and two-tone livery, sporty set-up with black TVE upholstery, widened fenders and without bumpers.

At the end of 1973 Lancia Fulvia Coupé 1.3 S received an aesthetic and technological update called Fulvia Coupé 3.

In 1975 the end-of-production version Safari was introduced, with simplified set-ups, with two-tone denim and leatherette upholstery.

The Fulvia Coupé is one of the most popular cars in Italy.
