1954 Pininfarina Lancia Aurelia

Pininfarina outdid themselves on the Lancia Aurelia. Stunning car. The whitewall radials suit it perfectly. And the little bonnet scoop leading to a single carburetor is a very nice touch. Although a single carb on a V6 wasn't going to make the Aurelia a flyer some models did come out with twin carbs and push the horsepower over 90. One thing I admire about this era Italian cars is that they were raced. The Mille Miglia and Le Mans were the proving grounds and they did surprisingly well.
