I have seen something similar in one of touring63s posts, so not my idea.

The specialists may correct me, but I think, only the Berlina was made at the Lancia factory, the Coupť was made at Pininfarina.

In my opinion the coachbuilt cars draw a lot of their character from the fact that they are not symetric to nowadays tolerances. Once I was asked to examine a Flaminia Sport (offered at 245.000 Euro, more than 300kUSD). The car did not appeal to me and I was wondering why it was so. The documents said that more than 2000 hours had been spent on the body, it was perfectly symetric, over all quality was like an Audi, it was dead. Still a sculpture, no question, but without spirit.

Fortunately my skills will not be sufficient to reach that level, so "the Bugatti-Wagen" was coachbuilt in 1961, will be coachbuilt in 2014.
