First registered in Italy, our Series III Aurelia was imported into the UK in January 1963.

It was purchased by a UK Lancia specialist in late 2009 and sold as a project to the most recent owner, who undertook a comprehensive and expensive 2-year restoration to the highest possible standards.

One of the last of 720 Series III Aurelia’s produced, the car retains its original de Virgilio designed 2.5-litre V6 engine and its period ‘Amaranto’ colour, paired with a traditional Lancia grey cloth interior. Genuine chrome hubcaps complete the cream-coloured wheels, matched by the original cream steering wheel.

For connoisseurs of early post-war GT cars, the Lancia Aurelia undoubtedly ranks alongside the more heralded brands of the period, such as Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz.

Our thoughts

This Series III B20GT is a stunning example of what could be considered the first true Grand Touring car. No expense has been spared to ensure only the most authentic finish.

The car not only delivers in appearance but in performance too, bearing all the hallmarks one would expect of the early, lightweight versions of the Aurelia – fast, agile and confident, powered along by the 2.5-litre unit that sets the Series III apart.
