Lurani Nibbio

Giovanni Lurani was born in Lombardy, Northern Italy, and he started his professional career as an automobile designer. At the end of the 1920s, he was already competing in motor racing. He lined up at the start of the Mille Miglia a total of nine times, including 1938 when he was driving a BMW 328. Lurani achieved three class victories in the endurance race, but he was even more. successful driving the lightweight and aerodynamically styled record-breaking vehicles that he designed himself.

Vehicle Overview

The Lurani Nibbio awarded the Coppa d’Oro Villa d’Este in 2017 was the first vehicle developed by Lurani in the quest for record-breaking times. The car was powered by a 500 cc two-cylinder motorcycle engine from Moto Guzzi that developed 46 hp, and the Nibbio broke four World Speed Records with the owner and designer at the wheel. The Lurani Nibbio was also the first automobile with an engine capacity of 0.5 litres to achieve a speed of more than 100 mph (160.9. km/h). In 1939, Carrozzeria Riva optimised the body of the record-breaking car. Another eight. records were the result. But more successes were still to come. The Lurani Nibbio broke six more. speed records in the period up to 1947. This time the automobile was powered by a 250 cc supercharged single-cylinder engine also manufactured by Moto Guzzi. Later on, the supercharged power unit was replaced by a naturally aspirated engine generating 43 hp which still powers the Lurani Nibbio to this day. The Nibbio II was developed in 1955 with a body made by Ghia.
