The Lancia Aurelia Chassis Register (In progress)

The Aurelia chassis register

We are trying to create a register of all Lancia Aurelia series B50, B51, B52, B53 and B55+B56 chassis.

Below you will find the selectable sheets divided by chassis type. At the bottom of each list you will find the cars that have not yet been assigned a number. The numbers already identified are clickable and redirect to the listing page of our database. When a number is not clickable and some informations are missing, it means that the car was not identified yet. When a car was produced in a small series (such as the B50 Cabriolet Pininfarina) you will find a single listing page dedicated to the model, and not to the single speciment.

We ask for help of all enthusiasts to complete the register. Subscribe to the website and comment below! Happy research to all!

This photo is a puzzle. Could it be reversed? According to the research by Wim Oude Weernink there were only two B56S 1005 and 1006 both Florida types by Pininfarina. They were upgraded from their B55S predecessors. The car that looks like this one by Ghia is B55-1004 dating from Jan to May 1955. It was for sale at Righini Auto in 2011 in White and Black. As far as Weernink records the only other car in the B55-B56 series that did not go to Pininfarina was B55S-1001 which is the Beuttler car which also still exists. My guess is the photo is a left-to-right reversal! Paul Mayo

Automobili Pininfarina, the pinnacle of Italian luxury automotive design, has unveiled the Battista Cinquantacinque, a hyper GT paying homage to the timeless elegance of the 1955 Lancia Florida. This one-of-a-kind masterpiece blends cutting-edge technology with the spirit of classic Italian design, capturing the essence of automotive history.

Named “Cinquantacinque,” meaning 55 in Italian, the car’s moniker pays homage to the legendary Pininfarina-designed classic car. The Battista Cinquantacinque proudly showcases the iconic Blu Savoia Gloss bodywork and a contrasting Bianco Sestriere Gloss roof, inspired by the original Lancia Florida show car.

The Lancia Florida, created by Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina, served as a muse for the creation of the Battista Cinquantacinque. Farina, the visionary behind the classic model, also lent his name to the fastest and most powerful Italian road car, the Battista.

The exterior of the Battista Cinquantacinque features flawless Blu Savoia Gloss paint, complemented by a Bianco Sestriere Gloss roof and Brushed Anodised jewelry pack. Inside, the bespoke Mahagoni Poltrona Frau Heritage Leather upholstery exudes luxury and sophistication.

Each Battista Cinquantacinque bears unique inscriptions, including the signature ‘Cinquantacinque 55’ on the passenger door plate and the underside of the active rear wing, signifying its heritage and provenance.

Underneath its exquisite exterior lies a powerful heart—a 1,900hp electric powertrain propelled by four independent motors and a 120 kWh lithium-ion battery. With staggering performance figures like 0-100 kph in 1.86 seconds and a driving range of up to 476 km, the Battista Cinquantacinque promises an exhilarating driving experience.

Dave Amantea, Chief Design Officer at Automobili Pininfarina, expressed his excitement, stating, “This was a truly special and unique opportunity to design a car that pays homage to Pininfarina SpA’s heritage.” Amantea highlighted the significance of the Lancia Florida’s influence on both the Battista Cinquantacinque and the PURA Vision design concept, setting the stage for future Automobili Pininfarina models.

The Battista Cinquantacinque will make its debut in Tokyo, Japan, alongside retail partner SKY GROUP, marking Automobili Pininfarina’s global expansion. Clients in the region will experience the brand’s promise of ‘Dream Cars. Made Real.’ firsthand, with each hand-crafted vehicle tailored to reflect the personality of its owner.

Automobili Pininfarina’s dedication to crafting bespoke masterpieces ensures that each vehicle leaving the Atelier facility in Cambiano is a unique expression of luxury and automotive excellence, rooted in Italian heritage and innovation.
