From the 1950s, almost every Lancia model had an extra sportive Zagato bodied version in the line-up. So it came as no surprise that in 1964 Lancia comissioned Zagato to construct a coupe version of the Fulvia.

In April 1965 the first prototype was ready and it was Elio Zagato himself who conducted the road tests. Before the end of the year the production of the Fulvia Sport 1.3 Zagato was started. As can be seen in the second picture, the rear hatch could be opened slightly electrically to improve ventilation while driving. The first production were powered by a 1.2 litre V4 engines, pumping out a decent 80 bhp. In 1967 the displacement was increased to 1.3 litres. This larger engine was available in two states of tune, 87 bhp for the Sport 1.3 and 93 bhp for the Sport 1.3S. In 1970 the Fulvia Sport was slightly restyled and a 115 bhp 1.6 litre engine was added to the line-up.

Various motorsport successes were scored with the light weight Fulvia Sport, including a class victory for a Sport 1600 at Daytona.

Featured is a first series 1.3S, seen here at the 2002 Zolder Historic Grand Prix.
