    Lancia Florida Concept (B56) 1955-1957

    One of the most significant prototype of the 1950s, this was a design exercise for the elegant Lancia Flamina sedan. The flat, straight trapeze line and the special bend in the sides, which made the whole profile appear more slender due to the play of light, continued as the inspiration for moder design until the eighties.

    This prototype evolved into Florida II concept, which was presented in 1957 at the Salon International de l'Auto in Geneva and became Battista Pininfarina's personal car of choice. The final production Lancia Flaminia was shown in 1957.

    If you think of Lancia only in terms of 70bhp diesel tarted up old Punto, you know absolutely nothing to judge Lancia.

    Well I've got to say Lancia is one of my all-time favourite brands. And Ferrari isn't. While agree that there are some magnificent Ferraris (especially 60's cars) There are some magnificent Lancias as well, cars that don't have anything to envy to a Ferrari. See it this way, between the Lancia Aurelia B20 GT and the Ferrari 195 Inter, I know which one I'd choose...
