1953 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT 3rd Series coupé
The Aurelia B20 GT is one car that truly deserves the ‘classic’ moniker, combining first-rate engineering with superb all-round performance and beautiful looks. Bonhams’ example is believed to have had four owners from new, being sold new to a Swedish buyer who kept it at the family’s Italian holiday home. They owned the car until 2002, when it was brought to the UK, and it was bought by the vendor in 2012. Refurbishment included a repaint and retrim and mechanical refreshment. Bentley R-type Continental capabilities for considerably less money. Tempting.
