If there’s one car that raises the bar in its segment and really knows how to loosen special feelings among its fans, than it’s this stunningly beautiful 1970 Lancia Fulvia Coupé 1.3 S Rallye. That’s for sure.
You’re looking at a copy from Italian origin, delivered new on September 8, 1970 in Milan: the city of fashion. A youth sentiment for many, featuring a historical amount of charisma. But above all: a wonderful, extremely tastefully composed classic Coupé which you can’t get your eyes of. In a condition you’ll find in the Italian dictionary under the term 'perfetto'.
'Rallye' says the type designation. In fact, the last addition to the model name covers it all. The lightness (the Lancia weighs just over 900 kilograms) combined with great driving characteristics set the base for several legendary wins at various championships.
In fact, the Fulvia dominated rallying in Italy from 1965-1973, by writing the Italian Rally Championship on its name year after year. But the absolute climax of this Lancia model took place in 1972, when an extra powerful 1.6 liter HF version won the International Championship for Manufacturers (IMC) with two rounds in advance.
Interior & Exterior
Optically and technically, this 'classico' (designed by Piero Castagnero) is a real treasure. The body of the timelessly styled angular coachwork is in excellent shape. The exceptionally elegant, dark-blue body color carrying the suitable name ‘Blu Lancia’, transforms this handsome Fulvia in a top sports player who’s ready to visit an ultra-chic gala evening.
The same goes for the inside. The appearance as well as the condition of the stylish amaretto brown leather interior, combined with wooden panels on the dashboard, is really one of a kind. Not to mention the splendid 2-spoke wooden steering wheel and highly tasteful chrome accents like the control units on the sides of the chairs, classic window winders and decorative strips on the door panels, which contrast gorgeously with the classy brown leather finish.
The heart of this 1.3 S Rallying is like the ultimate crown on a magnificent jewel: the modest 1298 cc V4 engine breathes pure nostalgia. Linked to a 5-speed manual transmission, the compact and very handy Coupé has proven being capable of great things. This refers to the unprecedented performance level from the past. However, what’s more fun than experience all these unique features and historical qualities in the present? This is your chance. You are very welcome to visit our showroom in the Netherlands!
