The Lancia Aprilia was the final car developed by the genius
Vincenzo Lancia and entered production on the month of his death.
The design was highly advanced with production running from 1937
through to 1950. Innovative features included a steel monocoque
construction. four pillarless doors. a narrow V4 overhead cam
engine. four-wheel independent suspension and powerful hydraulic
drum brakes. The model was successful in competition in period and
continues to be a regular winner in the pre-war class in tough
endurance events. The Aprilia is a wonderful balance of engineering
excellence. pedigree and practicality.

This 1938 Lancia Aprilia Lusso has had five keepers in its long
history and was used as daily transport for a retired nurse in
Edinburgh through the 1980's. It was then laid up until it was
bought at auction in 2008 as a running restoration project. The
engineer who purchased the car set about rebuilding the mechanical
components while the bodywork was repaired and treated to SRL rust
prevention before repainting and assembly. The red interior was
refreshed with new leather and a beautiful grey roof lining. The
vehicle was then wisely converted to a 12 volt electrical system
during restoration but could early be reverted back should the new
owner wish to compete in VSCC events.
Purchased by its current owner in early 2010. all servicing and
mechanical work since has been carried out by marque specialist. br/>Omicron Engineering. While not required by law. the Lancia also
benefits from a current MoT test certificate. This charming
example has provided trouble free motoring with trips from London
to Silverstone. Goodwood and Prescott to name but a few especially
when combined with plenty of power and excellent brakes for
confident driving in modern traffic. With prices of its big
brother. the Aurelia. now into six figures. the Aprilia represents
remarkable value for such an effective. practical and technically
important motor car.
