Lancia - Lancia Aurelia

The Lancia Aurelia, designed by Vitorio Jano was introduced in 195O with what we now call the First Series. The Aurelia had a V6 engine with a combined gearbox / transaxle at the rear. The engines started off at 1750cc and the Second Series Aurelias having 2 litres, with the 2.5 litre introduced for the Third Series Aurelia. The 4th series was redesigned with a DeDion rear. Later Aurelias models up to the 6th series gradually got heavier and more luxurious, so many today like the 4th Series which had the biggest engine in the lightest chassis, which didn't have the swing axles! Lancia also produced couple of open topped Aurelias, the B24S and the more spartan B24 Spyder.

The tyre size for the Lancia Aurelia was the millimetric 165R400, which Blockley produces a superb 165HR400 example of, and remember that these millimetric 165HR400 are tube type as per original. These period correct and steel belted Blockley tyres have the original taller diameter, and provide the best handling possible, in wet or dry.

Note that in more recent times non original but correct looking wheels have been made for the Lancias that take a conventional tyre, due to the expense and low speed rating etc of the only tyre that was available (Michelin).
