Chassis: 0005
Chassis 0005 is one of only two surviving D24s, and the only one that is in private hands. This particular car debuted at Sebring in 1954 in the hands of Juan Manuel Fangio Eugenio Castellotti, where it was very close to the win. It returned to Europe to score three consecutive victories, including the Targa Florio. It was given to President Peron of Argentina early in 1955 and as such saved from destruction. President Peron campaigned the car in national races livered in the blue and yellow Argentinian racing colours. It then served for many years as an instruction vehicle in a racing school.

In the 1980s the car was brought back to Italy and was subjected to a careful restoration, preserving much of the original mechanicals and bodywork. At the same time marque expert Guido Rosani was in the process of building several replicas (with many original parts), which are still actively campaigned in historic racing today. He later also built several D50 replicas around original engines. In the late 1990s chassis 0005 was acquired by a prominent American collector, who only rarely showed it. More recently it was bought by a Swiss Collection and restored again.

Still in American ownership, it is seen at the 2006 The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering where the 100th Anniversary of the Targa Florio was celebrated. The D24 is also shown at Pebble Beach in 2008 when Lancia was the featured marque. It was brought to the event by French historian and former team manager of the Renault F1 Team, Jean Sage, on behalf of the new Swiss owners. In more recent years, it has been demonstrated at both the Goodwood Revival and Festival of Speed.
