The Lancia Flavia, whose name derives from a homonymous road of the imperial age of Rome, is presented at the Turin Auto Show in 1960 as a medium-sized (4,58 x 1,61 meters) vehicle that joins the range between the Appia and the Flaminia. Its controversial double front lights and its large glass surfaces were the subject of many discussions among the enthusiasts. But the most peculiar feature of the Lancia Flavia is the trunk, which is frontally positioned since the engine takes place in the rear. The interior, which accommodates up to six people, features many elegant elements and equips advanced technologies, such as the emergency lights positioned everywhere. The Flavia is the first Lancia to fit a 4-cylinder boxer engine. This motor transmits power to a front-wheel-drive system. The Flavia is also very good at braking since all its brakes are disk, and this was extraordinary at the time. Thanks to all these innovations and its correct price, the Flavia had enormous commercial success in the first years, with over 60.000 units sold. As a 2+2 seater, the Flavia was also produced in a convertible version (around 20.000 exemplary) starting from 1962. In the same year, the Flavia Sport by Zagato was also born. This model has improved aerodynamics and a 100% aluminum body and is produced 727 exemplary. Following the Sport, three years later also the Supersport variant arrives. Produced in just 3 exemplary, the Supersport has a very futuristic design.
