The Dilambda, longer than 5 meters, was the Lancia flagship until 1931, when the Astura was introduced. Initially designed for the rich American market, the car was modified for the European market and presented at the 1929 Paris Motor Show.
As opposed to the previous monocoque Lambda, the Dilambda had a classic separated chassis, with independent wheel front axle, fitted with the V8 cylinder engine already used on the previous Trikappa. The Dilambda chassis was appreciated for its drive specification, performances, comfort and running silence. It was adopted by the greatest independent bodybuilders in Italy (Pinin Farina, Castagna, Cesare Sala, Stabilimenti Farina) and abroad, to create beautiful bodyworks able to fulfil every need, as the Castagna coupè de ville shown in the museum.
It has been the subject of an accurate restoration to recreate at the interior the warm and elegant atmosphere of those years.
