Technical wise, the car is fitted with a 80 bhp, 1,991cc OHV V-6 engine, four-speed manual gearbox, sliding pillar front suspension, independent rear suspension with coil springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
“The car’s mechanical underpinnings trace their lineage to the excellent Gianni Lancia and Vittorio Jano-designed Aurelia, which remains notable as Lancia’s first all-new, postwar automobile design,” a company statement reads.
“The elegant two-door, four-place coupe he created exudes conservative elegance, representing nothing less than the automotive equivalent of a finely tailored suit. It also, however, shows expected Italian flair in the twin air intakes flanking the grille and in the striking black-over-blue color scheme. The coupe’s profile ends with dramatically sloping rear fenders that lend the overall design a decidedly sporting flavor,” RM Auctions says.
Offered with its original Italian registration plates, this unique 1952 Lancia Aurelia B53 Coupe by Allemano is estimated at $125,000-$150,000.
