335 Flaminia Presidenziale by Pinin Farina

335  V6 cyl., 60°, 2458 cc, 102 cv - 6 ex.  
wb: 335 cm  

  When in 1960 Queen Elizabeth II announced her visit to Italy, President Gronchi commissioned Pininfarina to deliver four stretched Lancia Flaminia limousines to appropriately service the visit (and also renew the dated presidential fleet). The cars were built in a record time of 6 months to a detailed specification, with the assistance of General Motors with regard to various electric extras. They are seven-seater landaulets, painted dark blue, with black Connolly Leather upholstery, Voxon radio and Pirelli tires. This model is officially called 335 (due to its 335 cm wheelbase), and is also referred to as Presidenziale or Quirinale (after Quirinal Palace, the residence of the President of the Italian Republic). Individual cars are called Belsito, Belmonte, Belvedere and Belfiore.

Flavia  B4 cyl., 1499 ccm 78 cv - new model  
Berlina  wb: 2600 mm  

  Flavia was first announced soon after the opening of the Geneva Motor Show and then presented at the Turin Motor Show. In December the new Lancia was presented to the Prime Minister Hon Amintore Fanfani and – at the circuit of Vallelunga – to the press, for short tests. The car is powered by brand new 1.5 litre four-cylinder full alloy boxer engine with front-wheel drive through innovative double CV joints. The engine, for the first time is mounted to a subframe with elastic inserts to reduce vibration. Braking system is dual hydraulic circuit equipped with discs on all four wheels: technical features that had never before seen in Italy in a production car.
