The Lancia Lambda Torpedo, a car designed and built in the late 1920s, was very innovative: the front hood is low, allowing the car to have a larger windshield. Also the roof, when open, disappeared into a special made space. The car was designed by Battista Giuseppe Falchetto. There are around 13,000 Torpedo's produced in nine series between 1922 and 1931.The first Lambda appeared at the Paris Auto Salon in November 1922. It was not designed to be a race car: the manufacturer especially wanted to make it a touring car. However, a series of special Lambda "Corsa" versions was prepared for the Coppa delle 1000 Miglia In 1927.
