Vehicle Overview

the Lancia Astura Berlina Aerodinamica stands as a captivating testament to the intersection of political influence and exquisite design. Conceived in 1939 by the visionary Mario Revelli de Beaumont, this one-off berlinetta was commissioned by Galeazzo Ciano, Italy’s Foreign Minister and Mussolini’s son-in-law. The Astura Berlina Aerodinamica became a symbol of opulence and power, combining the elegance of Lancia engineering with the discerning taste of a prominent political figure. Crafted by the skilled hands of Pininfarina, the renowned Italian coachbuilder, the Astura Berlina Aerodinamica boasts a distinctive design that transcends the era’s automotive norms. The aerodynamic silhouette, a product of forward-thinking design in the late 1930s, sets it apart as a symbol of automotive artistry. The integration of aerodynamic principles not only contributed to its aesthetic appeal but also hinted at a sophistication that went beyond mere visual allure. The front grille, a prominent feature of the Astura Berlina Aerodinamica, commands attention with its generous proportions. This bold design choice creates a sense of grandeur and dominance, befitting a car commissioned for a figure of political significance. Chrome elements, meticulously incorporated throughout the exterior, further enhance its regal presence and add a touch of luxury. Beyond its aesthetic prowess, the Lancia Astura Berlina Aerodinamica harbors historical significance, serving as a tangible representation of the interplay between politics and automotive craftsmanship during a pivotal period in Italian history. The collaboration between Mario Revelli de Beaumont and Pininfarina birthed a masterpiece that not only delighted the eye but also echoed the influence and aspirations of its original owner. As a one-off creation, the Astura Berlina Aerodinamica remains a captivating anomaly in the world of automotive design. Its enduring legacy lies not only in its rarity but also in its ability to encapsulate a moment in time when elegance, power, and political influence converged on the open roads of pre-World War II Italy.
