Lancia Flaminia Coupe
The 'Via Flaminia' is a road into the city of Rome and gave its name to the replacement for the Lancia Aurelia. Antonio Fessia was asked to design a replacement for the Vittorio Jano V6 engine, and came up with an expandable 2458cc unit. Carozzeria Pininfarina had 'previewed' the new Flaminia with some Aurelia-based show cars from 1955-7 and was given the job of turning his 'Florida' concepts into firstly a 4-door 6-light saloon in 1957, and then in 1959 the lovely Flaminia Coupe based on the Florida II concept. There are many aspects of this Coupe that were reworked for the Farina Austins and Peugeot 404. In 1962 the Flaminia 3B was introduced with engine uprated to 128hp with a a triple-barrel carburettor. In 1963 the 3B engine was further uprated to 2775cc (the '3B 2.8'). Production ceased in 1967 after 5300 coupes had been built

In 1957 the new Flaminia was given a revised version of this V6 sized at 2,458cc and in turn this was uprated to 2,775cc for the 1963 Flaminia. The 3B model had a 3-barrel carburrettor and the later 3C had triple carbs.
