This looks like a wonderful example of a restored 1953 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT Series 3...with an asking price of $275,000AUD to match!

There is an excellent 50 picture photo gallery to accompany the listing whilst the car remains listed for sale. Worth a look if you are interested in classic Lancia marque model examples and history. It must have been a real engineering tour de force in it day. And oh so elegant, understated and rakishly good looking to boot! Cool

I have attached four photos here as the online ones will disappear when it is no longer listed for sale. The seller`s description is quite informative:

Seller's Comment

1953 LANCIA AURELIA- B20 GT SERIES 3

SN:3545   CHASSIS: B202379  ENG: 2623

$275,000 (To be sold Unregistered & with Vic RWC)

THE ICONIC ITALIAN GRAN TURISMO

The Pininfarina bodied Lancia Aurelia B20 GT was first released in 1951 as an evolution of the stylish Aurelia B10 four door pillarless sedan. Technically advanced for the period, the Aurelia earned the title of The World's First Production Car to use a V6 Engine.

On road performance was exceptional when new, due to it's independent rear suspension, transaxle transmission,  inboard rear brakes and of course the Lancia patented design sliding pillar front suspension. When combined with the relatively light weight engine and excellent weight distribution the GT became an obvious choice for competition use, including entries in events such as: the Mille Miglia , Targa Florio, Le Mans and Carrera Panamerica.

This beautifully restored 1953 B20 GT presents impeccably on all fronts, having undergone a comprehensive restoration by 'Historic and Vintage Restorations' of Blackburn, Victoria. The Midnight Blue paintwork is stunning, as is the classically styled leather and houndstooth interior trim. This Series 3 example features the larger capacity 2451cc engine producing 110 BHP, a development of the earlier 1991cc (80 BHP) engine used in the Series 1&2 B20's.

A true Italian Coup of the 1950's, the Lancia B20 GT has everything you could ask for: performance, comfort, style and competition history. Owned new by the likes of Juan Manuel Fangio who described the Aurelia as mild as a lamb, if necessary as lithe as a panther, as tough as the camels who manage to cross the desert chewing a small morsel of food, it's a smart, fast, impressive car.

What a beautiful, beautiful car. Forget a Ferrari, if I won the lottery that is what I'd be looking for.
