Lancia Flaminia GT and Spider
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. 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 a 4-door 6-light saloon in 1957. Carrozzeria Touring were also asked to produce Flaminias and chose to builds the Flaminia Spider and the closed GT version of this. The Flaminia Gran Turismo coupe was shown in 1959 on the shortest of the Flaminia floorpans, and was much lighter than even the slighter longer Pininfarina Coupe. In 1960 Turing presented an open version of the GT to take the place of the intended Vignale Spider which the Lancia management did not like. In 1962 triple carburettors were fitted and the GT was given the '3C' badge. In 1963 the engine was enlarged to 2775cc and the badges changed to '3C 2.8'. A GTL version on an 8cm longer wheelbase and with 2+2 seating was offered from 1963. Production ended in 1965

Lancia Flaminia 3C GT. Behind the grille Antonio Fessia was in charge of the engineering of the new Flaminia. A brand new 2458cc V6 engine was fitted to drive the front wheels, and Lancia's legendary sliding pillar front suspension was finally retired in favour of a new suspension of coils and wishbones.
