Lancia – Flavia Sport


Vehicle Overview

Not the most beautiful sideview: The 1961 introduction of Lancia’s new front-wheel-drive Flavia range continued the next year with the development of the Zagato-built Sport. The Ercole Spada-designed Sport was significantly lighter than other Flavia models by virtue of its alloy body, and it also featured panoramica rear quarter windows that wrapped into the roof, giving the model a distinctive, idiosyncratic look. The concave rear window was hinged at the top and actuated by an electric motor, which opened a few centimetres for improved ventilation, and the sloping rear deck ended in a raked tail. In 1963, the Sport’s 1,500-cubic centimetre, dual carburettor flat-four was enlarged to 1,800 cubic centimetres. Unlike the other models in the Flavia line whose single-carburettor arrangement produced 92 brake horsepower, the Sport’s engine retained dual carburetors, which saw its power increase to 100 brake horsepower and then 105 brake horsepower, with competition-tuned units making 130 brake horsepower.
