Perfect for hardened Lancistas, this photographic celebration of the Turin marque and their competition pedigree scratches the surface of 50 years of Lancia race and rally cars.
With moody, studio esque detail shots of the cars, followed by brief technical specifications and a picture gallery of each car in its heyday, it doesn’t pretend to be an authorative marque history. The text is minimal and eccentrically translated. It is a pick-up-and-skim chance to rekindle great memories of some of the sexiest-looking cars ever to grace stage and track: from the D50 grand prix beauty through to Stratos, 037 and Delta rally cars, and the mid-80s Group C LC2 sportscar. Its elegance and style make this one for the coffee table rather than bedside table. HH-F
