Lancia Aurelia B20 GT 1953 Origin Italy

  Engine 2,451 cc, V6 Top speed 112 mph (180 km/h)
The Vittorio designed Lancia Aurelia was a very anarchistic design, combined with high levels of performance and luxury into one attractive and compact package. This car firstly come in 1950 in B10, and joined by B20 GT two-passenger coupe in 1951, the Aurelia created a momentary sensation. The brainchild of Lancia engineer Francesco de Virgilio, it's also considered the primary production automobile to utilise V6 power. Mechanically just like the B10 but with a bigger two-litre engine, the B20 GT was designed by Boano, and series production bodywork was administered by Pinin Farina.

The Italian exotic cars under discussion was the Lancia Aurelia B20 GT. Tintin was seen in another Lancia, the Aprilia within the 
“Land of Black Gold”. The Aurelia was a GT manufactured by Lancia from 1950 to 1958. It had been designed by Vittorio Jano. For the readers recently initiated to the planet of automobiles, a GT may be a car designed to hide large distances briefly periods of your time. These are high performance cars, which suggests large powerful engines, with a well handling chassis. They're luxuriously appointed and classyThe traditional format may be a two door coupe which may seat either 2 or 2+2, meaning a rudimentary rear seat meant for little people. to call a couple of , Lancia Aurelia , Alfa Romeo 6C, Bentley Continental, Ferrari 250 GTO, Aston Martin DB5, Porsche 911, Mercedes SLS etc. all fall into this category.

The Aurelia wasn't 
a little car, it was 4,280 mm (168.5″) long, 1,540 mm (60.6″) wide and 1,400 mm (55.1″) tall with a wheel base of 2660 mm (104.7″). The V-6 engine could push the 1,070 kg car to a top speed of 160 km/h (100 mph). It had been capable of 0 to 60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 14.9 seconds. 1 / 4 mile was dispatched in 20.1 seconds and therefore the speed at the top of this 440 yards was 111 km/h (69 mph). In really true GT tradition, it could covered 567 km (351 miles) on a full tank of oil.

This clever, four-seat coupe served as a template for the fashionable 
compact grand tourer. The car’s sharp handling, because of independent suspension, rear-mounted “transaxle” gearbox, and then-revolutionary radial tires, was aided by strong performance from the world’s first production V6 engine. It also featured a robust, lightweight monocoque steel body.

In the quest of more power, the V6 was enlarged to 2.5 liters in 1953. Output increased to 118hp, lifting performance to just about the extent of Bentley R-type Continental. within the following years, Aurelia coupe was further refined, improving reliability, build quality, road holding (thanks to a replacement de Dion axle rear suspension introduced in 1954) and sound insulation, but within the process it also got heavier and slower. Motor historians regarded the first 2.5-liter cars were the simplest among all series. They combined sports car performance with quality finishes and engineering excellence only a few could match. No wonder they were the road car choice of racing drivers like Juan Manuel Fangio and Mike Hawthorn.
