1939 Lancia Aprilia Cabriolet Lusso


When introduced in 1937, the Lancia Aprilia was one of the most advanced European cars of its time.  Powered by a narrow V4 engine, originally 1.4 litres, the Aprilia was capable of an impressive 80 mph, which, allied to exceptional road holding, ensured considerable success. It was one of the first cars designed using a wind tunnel and was to achieve a record low drag coefficient of just 0.4.

Production was to continue after the war until 1949 and, as with all Lancia models, they have a very enthusiastic following today.

The Pininfarina designed Cabriolet was a most appealing motor car and is rarely encountered on U.K roads and the example we offer here is certain to create much interest. Later models, such as this particular example, benefited from an enlargement of the engine to 1.5 litre.

Currently with Dutch papers, it is now being U.K registered.   In right hand drive format, like many Lancia of this era,  this model is Mille Miglia eligible, which must definitely add to its appeal.

The subject of an older restoration, the car now exudes a pleasing patina and is certainly very useable with a well fitting hood, and its ability to hold its own in modern traffic.

The original Instruction Manual is included, along with various bills and a copy of 'Corsa Italia' Magazine which has a colour feature on the car.
