Lancia Flaminia Coupé Pininfarina (1957-67)

The Lancia Flaminia is a luxury car produced by Italian automaker Lancia from 1957 to 1970. It was Lancia's flagship model at that time. It was available throughout its lifetime as berlina, coupé and cabriolet. The berlina (or saloon) version of the car was was the only body to last through the entire production period.

The Flaminia Berlina was also 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 Pininfarina (Flaminia Coupé), Touring (GT, GTL and Convertible) and Zagato (Sport and Super Sport). Four "presidential" stretched limousine Flaminias were also produced by Pininfarina for use on state occasions.

The Coupé was designed and built by Pininfarina. It was very similar to the Florida II prototype with a 2+2 layout (see photos below). Like all other 2-door versions, the Coupé had a shortened wheelbase relative to the Berlina. The front end of the Coupé does not differ from the Berlina majorly, but the headlight frames are completely round, whereas they point slightly upwards in the saloon. 5,236 Coupés (4,151 with the 2.5, 1,085 with the 2.8) were built until 1967.
