Incredible performance for a car of this era; fully restored and ready for vintage events; runs and drives great; very rare to find one like this and in such complete condition. Lancia automobiles were known for being extremely fast and unusual. Between 1910 and 1920, Lancia primarily built fast middle-class tourers. The firm was an active innovator and always ahead of its time with technical and mechanical solutions. One day, Vincenzo Lancia found himself on a ship in a monstrous sea. Seeing the ships hull fighting the demonic waves he stated that a car should be as firm and strong as a ships hull. This wet experience and the idea of the ships hull inspired Vincenzo to develop a car with a unitary bodywork structure... This car, the Lancia Lambda, was presented to the public in 1922. It was the first car ever built with a unitary body structure; body and chassis finally merged. Mechanically, the Lancia Lambda was also far ahead of its contemporaries. The car featured a unique V4 engine with dual overhead camshafts, independent front suspension and brakes all round. The Lancia Lambda was extensively tested in the Alps. The light car with stiff bodywork and powerful engine proved to be a very desirable combination, and the Lambda was blessed with excellent roadholding capabilities. The Lambda was built with several bodywork variations until 1931, when it was succeeded by the Dilambda.
