About this Lancia Fulvia

ARRIVING IN AUGUST

The Lancia Fulvia was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1963 and it was named after “Via Fulvia” which was the Roman road between Tortona and Turin. It was manufactured in three variants, the Berlina 4-door Saloon, a 2-door Coupé and Sport with the fastback coupé designed and built by Zagato and introduced in 1967.

It may have been overshadowed in motorsport by its brother, the Coupé, but the Lancia Fulvia Sport, shaped by the legendary 100-year-old house of design that is Zagato, was surely the winner in the looks department. Created for performance on the road while the Coupé achieved excellence in rallying, the Sport boasted a more aerodynamic shape, evidenced in the fastback design and the piercing nose.

It was also a lightweight machine, and initial models were built with an all-aluminum body on a compact chassis, measuring just 13.5’ in length and 5.1’ wide. Perhaps most significantly for Lancia, which at this point was building most of its cars with an emphasis on engineering excellence and a price to match versus sales volume, the Fulvia Sport was the last of its kind. Debuting at the 1965 Turin Motor Show, the two-door Lancia Fulvia Sport was designed by Zagato’s Ercole Spada, and the suits put their faith in it to the extent that the car became Lancia’s first real entry into the US market, even though at the time it practically matched the sales price of the ever popular Corvette.

The Fulvia Sport utilized the Coupé’s 1216cc V4, which delivered approximately 80 bhp to the front wheels via a four-speed gearbox. The unusual Ettore Zaccone Mina-designed V4 hosted a single cylinder head thanks to its narrow angle of just 13 degrees, and was equipped with a dual-overhead camshaft valve train to improve airflow and combustion efficiency. Meanwhile, twin Solex carbs handled fuel and air mixing duties. In addition to its narrow V design, the engine was also positioned at an angle to achieve a lower hood line to improve aerodynamics, and was placed ahead of the front axle, directly above the transaxle.
After just 202 models were produced, a year later the first Fulvia Sport was supplanted by the Sport 1.3, which increased the motor’s bore to achieve a capacity of 1,298cc, which produced 89bhp at 6,000 rpm. This gave a 0-60mph time of around 13 seconds, with a top speed just shy of 110. Early versions of the Sport 1.3 continued with the all-aluminum body though later versions went with steel but retained the aluminum bonnet and doors.

In 1968, the 1.3S model pushed the pony count to 92, while also equipping the car with brake servos. That same year, a one-off Spider, two-seater variant of the Sport was presented at the Turin Motor Show. But, in a move which heralded the economies to come, it never reached full production. Following further financial difficulties, Lancia was sold again in 1969, this time to FIAT and the launch of the series two Lancia Fulvia Sport came a year later. Now with a five-speed gearbox and classed as a four-seater, the riveted aluminum panels were replaced with an all-steel body, welded to the monocoque to increase rigidity. The final and most significant development of the Sport was the launch of the 1600 in 1971 which borrowed the engine from the Coupé HF, Lancia’s rally champion. This boosted power to 115bhp—closer to 130 when tuned—with a top speed of roughly 120 mph. Just 800 examples of the 1600 model were built, with production of the Fulvia Sport ceasing altogether in 1972.

This superb 1972 car is an original UK-supplied RHD S2 Lancia Fulvia Sport 1.3S Zagato is allegedly one of only 30 Right-hand drive Zagato's that survive today and there are only 7 from 1972 currently licensed in the UK.


This car was imported into South Africa from the UK by the last owner few years ago and we are very lucky to have found it for sale and purchase it from him. It was treated to a bare metal respray by a specialist in Johannesburg and the interior is beautifully original and mechanically excellent. We are also led to believe that the car has also only covered 40,000 miles from new, but this has to be authenticated.

These cars are rarely found for sale, so we don't expect to be on sale in showrooms for very long once it arrives in late July/early August.

Full details, price and photo's to follow upon arrival at our showrooms.
