Lancia Flaminia GT Cabriolet Touring (1957-64)

The Lancia Flaminia is a luxury car from the Italian automaker, Lancia, built from 1957 to 1970. It was available throughout its lifetime as Saloon (or Berlina), Coupé and Cabriolet.

The Flaminia's engine was an evolution of the world's first V6, which was introduced in the Aurelia. The 2.5L V6 produced 119bhp, with 140bhp available in the '3C' (triple-carburettor) models from 1961, which was further increased when the 2.8L version arrived in 1963.

The saloon version of the car was the only body to be built by Lancia themselves. The Flaminia Coupé and Convertible variants were coachbuilt cars with bodies from several prestigious Italian coachbuilders such as Pinifarina (Flaminia Coupé), Zagato (Sport and Super Sport) and Touring (GT, GTL and Convertible).

The GT, GTL and Convertible versions of the Flaminia designed and built by Carrozzeria Touring are aluminum bodied two-door versions, which can be easily distinguished by their four round headlights (rather than two on the Pininfarina Flaminia Coupé), and a shorter cabin - the wheelbase was decreased significantly for the GT and Convertible, allowing for only two seats to be mounted. The GT was a coupé, while the Convertible was obviously a cabriolet version (with optional hardtop). The GTL, introduced in 1962, was a 2+2 version of the GT with a slightly longer wheelbase.

The Convertibile was in production until 1964, with 847 made in total (180 with the 2.8), while the GT and GTL lasted until 1965, with 1718 GTs and 300 GTLs made (out of which, 168 GTs and 297 GTLs with the 2.8). (wikipedia)
