First registered in Italy on 25 November 1953, our Series III Aurelia was imported into the United Kingdom in January. All the owners are recorded in the original UK Registration Book that is with the car.
From 2015 to 2017, the car underwent a comprehensive restoration by Thornley Kelham, with more than £200,000 of work undertaken to return it to the stunning original finish it bears today.
One of the last Series III Aurelia’s produced in 1953, the car retains its original de Virgilio designed 2.5-litre V6 engine and has since been returned to 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 and instrument details of the interior.
