Lancia “2000 i.e. Berlina “, 1972.
The Lancia 2000 was born to replace the missing spot left by the Flaminia in 1970.
Lancia needed a new flagship model and by substantially modifying the Flavia berlina, the 2000 Berlina saw the light.
Powered by the Flavia’s flat-4 engine, the 2000 will be the first Italian car (and one of the world’s first) to adopt electronic injection, a technology that will become a standard feature in the automotive world only several years after.
Elegant and very refined, the 2000 won’t be a great commercial success: the high quality of production will elad to high costs that slowed down the sales and stopped them after 14.319 cars made (5500 of which were fuel-injected).
