1934' Lancia Augusta
The Lancia Augusta was no ordinary car; it had a monocoque construction, independent sliding pillar front suspension, an overhead cam V4 engine and hydraulic brakes. The Augusta was successful in track events, and were the chosen transport of several leading Italian racing drivers including Tazio Nuvolari who kept one for several years.
WO8978 is a very rare Lancia factory produced drop head cabriolet, designed by Battista “Pinin” Farina, one of his first designs. She has wind up windows and a clever spring loaded hood, which can be erected in seconds. In summer she is a full 4 seat tourer and in the winter with the hood and windows up is as good as any saloon.
She is a very smart and well sorted car being a regular class and award winner at the VSSC Welsh and Measham Rallies. She won Best Pre-war Car at the 2019 Festival of Transport, and featured in July 2019 Auto Italia.
She has a Certificate of Origin from Classiche Lancia, a FIVA I.D. Card, a ACI Fiche certificate, a VSCC Buff Form, and is registered with the Registro 1000 Miglia meaning she is pre-approved and ready for an entry in the Mille Miglia.
An extremely rare, stylish and very usable Italian pre-war car.
