1955 Lancia Aurelia

Ferrari Westlake is very proud to present one of the most sought-after postwar Lancias, the B24S Spider America. It shares the innovative drivetrain layout of a V-6 engine, rear transaxle, rear inboard brakes, and unit body of its sedan and coupe stablemates. Add that to the stunningly beautiful Pinin Farina body and it is one of the most incredible sports cars of the 20th century. As was the case with the majority of the B24S Spider Americas, this example was originally delivered to the US. While its early history is currently unknown, in the mid-1980s, Silvano Cima, a software entrepreneur and one of Italy's most respected Lancia collectors, discovered the Aurelia in America. An avid driving event and rally participant, he ordered a complete restoration to top mechanical and cosmetic condition from KCA Restauro Auto d'Epoca in Milan, which for many years was the world's leading specialist in Lancia restoration. The work was carried out from 1986 to 1989, after which Mr. Cima drove the Spider in the Mille Miglia Storica, Tour Auto, Rallye Sanremo, Monza Revival Rally, and the Gira di Primavera, among others. Mr. Cima was clearly quite fond of his Lancia, retaining ownership for more than two decades. In 2005, this Aurelia was sold to Nico Koel of the Netherlands, and its rally use continued. In the period up through 2008, the Spider America also participated in the Coppa D'Oro delle Dolomiti and Modena Cento Ore Classic. After Mr. Koel's ownership, the car passed into the hands of collector Harold Wrobel of Los Angeles in 2009, and was brought back to the US. That same year, Mr. Wrobel exhibited the Lancia at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, in Carmel Valley, California, where it presented beautifully. Following a short stint with an interim owner, the Aurelia was acquired by respected collector Rick Rome, who had an engine-out mechanical overhaul performed to ensure it ran as well as it looked. The work, totaling some 500 hours of labor, included a major service as well as attention to the transaxle, driveshaft, and engine. A new fuel tank was fitted and the engine compartment was detailed as well. In 2017 and 2018, the Spider America was repainted in the Lancia Verde Ascot Metallic color, and a new leather interior and convertible top canvas were fitted. The chrome was refinished and the front suspension, shock absorbers, and brakes were addressed. Driving the B24S, Mr. Rome successfully completed both the Colorado Grand and Copperstate 1000 twice during his tenure with the car. In 2020, the current owner, a prominent Southern California collector, sent the Spider America to Lancia specialist Thornley Kelham in the UK. It was stripped to bare metal, any necessary metalwork was performed, and it was expertly refinished in black. The transaxle and brakes were rebuilt, the tires were replaced, the fuel tank was cleaned and pressure tested, and further work was performed to the front suspension. The Lancia is presented with its full weather equipment, including the framed glass side curtains with vents, as well as a tool kit. Importantly, the Lancia also still retains its matching-numbers engine per its Lancia Registro Certificate, and is equipped with the optional and very desirable twin Weber 40 DCZ5 carburetor setup with a special, period Nardi intake manifold and air cleaner. This upgrade gives approximately 130 bhp, a substantial increase over the 108 bhp of the US-specification single-carburetor version. In concert with its active use on rallies and tours, this B24S Spider America has been carefully and thoroughly maintained and preserved. The Lancia is listed in the Registro Aurelia Italiano, and possesses a FIVA Identity Card and an Italian Certificato di Omologazione. This stunning Spider America gives its best when being hustled along twisting roads. It is no wonder that the previous owners of the car so often employed it as a formidable competitor in vintage rally events. The new custodian of this wonderfully presented Aurelia is sure to enjoy the superbly entertaining road characteristics and beautiful lines of what is one of the truly definitive collector cars.
