Today, front-wheel drive, sophisticated engineering and refined quality are the industry’s standards for even generalist volume car makers. Not so almost 60 years ago when Lancia – already known for its industry-leading technology – presented the Flavia. It was avant-garde in many ways, the fruit of Lancia’s new future-focused strategy under Carlo Pesenti’s visionary ownership and professor Antonio Fessia’s product development.
Soon followed by a similarly advanced Fulvia, these models set the tone for a more than 15-year era in Lancia history. Flavia and Fulvia were the benchmark for many other car maker on how to develop automobiles to a premium level.
Additional special-bodied coupés and convertibles and an unrivalled motorsport engagement underlined the company’s commitment to establish its unique position in an ever increasing industrial competition.
Both models have been the subject of many books and articles, by Oude Weernink as well as others. But after many years the author felt the need to rearrange all his earlier researched historical information and publications for this book, added to and completed with additional facts and illustrations. All in an attempt to serve the needs of collectors and connaisseurs of these two unique species of the Italian car industry’s rich culture, and Lancia’s own glorious past in particular.

APPIA LANCIA’S FAMILY JEWEL EXPLAINED

Oude Weernink’s book covers all aspects and evolutions of the Appia range. Its pedigree, its technical conception and the updates that differentiated the three successive Appia series. Many photos with captions give an interesting overview of the elegant and sporting special bodies designed and made by the iconic Italian coachbuilders; Allemano, Boano, Motto, Pininfarina, Vignale, Zagato and Swiss Ghia Aigle. But it is also a very useful book for the Appia owner, with a chapter about special accessories available at the time when those cars were young and the tuning equipment to improve the performance and speed of these little machines. There is a section with well-illustrated pages which will help those who restore, repair or want keep their Lancia Appia in perfect shape.
