Lancia – Astura Cabriolet Farina


Vehicle Overview

This particular Lancia has been built by the Stabilimenti Farina on a III series long chassis Astura. Giovanni Michelotti designed the body and Mario Revelli de Beaumont the interior and the dashboard. The car was enrolled to the 1947 Villa d’Este elegance concours where won the Best in show prize, surprisingly, in front of the Cisitalia 202 and other modern cars. It was the last testimonial of the “monolith” or “famboyant” introduced in 1946 by the S.Farina and the Ghia designers. This post war period (1946-49) was very difficult in Italy because the Allied bombings destroyed most of the factories. The coachbuilders offered new bodies built on old chassis so the designers could not develop new forms yet. Two similar cabriolets have been built, but only one is still in existance.
