Lancia Stratos Greenwich 5

An Italian rally legend in one hell of a color! It rained like hell at the Greenwich Concours, and that that only made this teal Stratos “pop” even more.

Enjoy!

1968 Lancia Fulvia Series 1 at the 2016 Scarsdale Concours

1968 Lancia Fulvia Front

What will always strike me about Lancia is just how good they look, even as a normal sort of car. This ’68 Fulvia sat next to a contemporary Ferrari 330 2+2, and still held its own for styling. This isn’t a supercar. It’s not even really supposed to be a sports-styled car of its era. But the eggshell white paint, tasteful minimum of chrome trim, and pert headlights and taillights accent the sharp body lines and bring out the best of the flair that the stylist of the Fulvia put in place. Of all the Italian cars in attendance at Scarsdale last week, this one was my #2, behind the silver 275 GTB (more on that next week) sitting down the street. Enjoy the photos of this offbeat Italian classic. Continue reading 1968 Lancia Fulvia Series 1 at the 2016 Scarsdale Concours

Lancia Scorpion spotted on I-287 South near Pompton Lakes, NJ

Lancia Scorpion Profile

While riding home from Lime Rock, Shane and I spotted this little white sports car about to exit Interstate 287 near the local rock quarry in Pompton Lakes. This is a late Seventies era Lancia Scorpion, which was a poor seller in the USA and therefore hardly-seen. It was at the show earlier in the day–but for some reason my camera’s watchful eye failed to catch it. Enjoy the shots of this late-era Italian classic.

Lancia 037 at a rainy Greenwich Concours

Lancia 037 Greenwich Concours 1

It absolutely poured for much of the second day at this year’s Greenwich Concours, but the show field was still pretty decent. As the skies were leaking, we passed the time stuffing our faces with delicious and complementary lobster sandwiches, while also taking royal advantage of the wine tasting tent.

When the rain let up we we were able to get our photos of the cars dripping wet. This Lancia 037 is the homologated road version of the legendary Lancia rally car, and it immediately caught our eye when we first walked into the show.

Enjoy the gallery of this trail-rated Italian Stallion!

Lancia Stratos at the Concours of America at St. John’s

Lancia Stratos Concours of America

The Lancia Stratos was the most epic of rally cars, basically an Italian supercar meant to race on dirt and road. We saw this striking orange Stratos at the Concours of America at St. John’s, and it stole everyone’s attention when it was driving around the show field.

An Italian stallion, to be sure!

2012 Lime Rock Historic Festival: Some shots from the paddock

We were in attendance for the Lime Rock Historic Festival earlier this month. It was actually my first time at Lime Rock, despite having lived in the Northeast US for my entire life. It is a fantastic facility with great views of the track all around. I have loads of photos from the weekend, but here are a few varied shots from around the paddock. More to come.   Continue reading 2012 Lime Rock Historic Festival: Some shots from the paddock

Concours d’ Elegance of America: Lancia Stratos HF

 

Lancia Stratos at the Concours d’ Elegance of America outside Detroit. The Stratos is a rare Italian rally homologation from the 1970s.. Its striking design was penned by Bertone, and its power came from the same 2.4L Ferrari V6 found in the 246 Dino. Weighing just 2100lbs it made the most of its 192hp, with racing versions winning the World Rally Champioship in 1974, 1975, and 1976. A total of 492 Stratos’ were produced in total. This is only the 2nd one I have ever seen in person, enjoy the pics.
