Lancia Flaminia "Super Sport Zagato", 1965

The Lancia Flaminia Zagato Super Sport, the last of the models of the Flaminia lineage with bodywork by Zagato, unites two of the oldest and most esteemed names in the Italian motoring industry. The result is a fair tribute to both companies. On 4 November 1964, when the Turin Show had already begun, the Lancia exhibited a new model, the Flaminia Super Sport, at its stand, which happily brought the evolution of the prestigious Coupé Flaminia to a close.

Elegant and sporty simultaneously, the Super Sport appeared stylistically extremely pleasant, with substantial modifications to the bodywork compared to the previous model. The most apparent of said modifications was in a more stubby tail, which maintained the same circular optic groups as on the previous model but inserted into a cavity with a greater diameter at the edge of the lateral curve of the tail. The front also had a new design.

While maintaining the now traditional Lancia style of the radiator cowling, it had better aerodynamic profiling and connected nicely with the drop slot of the plastic-covered headlights. The interior fittings were of the highest quality, and the seats had a new anatomical design.

The boot had a hatch that communicated with the driver and passenger compartment for the easy transport of a golf caddie or skis. This solution is quite common nowadays but unusual at the time.

Compared to the previous Sport versions, the Super Sport, built in 150 pieces in just over two years, was generally more elegant, "touristic," and streamlined. The Super Sport had achieved a significant record, establishing itself in Italian car production in the mid-sixties as the car with the highest percentage of light alloys (almost 25% of the total weight). The Super Sport could reach 210 km/h. It was the first non-racing Lancia to be able to run so fast!
