1955 Lancia Aurelia B20S GT Coupe Series 4

Lancia’s Aurelia, a significant post-war automobile, was first introduced as a B10 Berlina in 1950. It holds the distinction of being the first production car to feature a V-6 engine and standard radial tires. The car’s unit-body construction with torsional stiffness and sliding-pillar front suspension, combined with a rear transaxle and multi-link rear suspension, made it a unique and innovative vehicle.

In 1951, Lancia launched the B20 GT, a coupe version with a 1,991-cubic-centimeter engine and shortened 2,660-millimeter wheelbase. The model underwent constant development and improvement, with the Third Series in 1953 featuring an enlarged 2,451-cubic-centimeter engine. In the subsequent year, Lancia released the most desirable version of the model, incorporating additional upgrades.
