Description

In the rich history of automotive design, there is one name that has always been synonymous with timeless class: Carrozzeria Touring. Founded in 1926 and continuing until 1965, Touring earned its unique reputation by creating cars with a decidedly lightweight build. Their distinctive techniques, including the famous "Superleggera" tubular frame construction, quickly became legendary in the automotive world. Touring's legacy began in 1926 when they took over Carrozzeria Falco, owned by Vittorio Ascari, the brother of famed Alfa Romeo driver Antonio Ascari. This is where the journey to shaping some of the most iconic cars began. One of their masterpieces was the creation of the Flaminia series, which debuted at the 1957 Geneva Motor Show. This marked a new direction for Lancia, leaving behind the traditional design elements of the 1950s in favor of a sleeker look. As with the earlier Aurelia series, the Flaminia models had their sporty variants. These sporty versions were not just bodies; they were works of art on wheels, shaped by the skillful hands of Italy's most renowned coachbuilders. Carrozzeria Pinin Farina created the elegant long chassis coupe, while Zagato and Touring shaped the short chassis sports coupe. At the 1960 Geneva Motor Show, Carrozzeria Touring presented the Flaminia Cabriolet, derived from the elegant GT coupe. This particular car in our collection is equipped with the beloved 2.5. The distinctive "Superleggera" system, which combines a tubular steel frame with lightweight aluminum panels, is a testament to Touring's commitment to perfection. This car embodies the soul of a bygone era, where harmony between form and function was the norm. It is not just any car; it is the icing on the cake, the limoncello after dinner, the sweet roll with coffee, a piece of Italian history. Ours? One of 667 rare Cabriolet examples. Dressed in elegant Blue Medio and with a sumptuous dark brown leather interior. This gem has known a life in the collection of an enthusiast, who has had her pampered with care and dedication on the restoration table. The result? A careful restoration that has breathed new life into the car, without the urge for concours perfection, but with a call to be driven. Are you ready for the ultimate driving experience? We look forward to seeing you soon!
