We’ve Got Lancia Touch Up Paint
Lancia is another luxury Italian automaker. Before he started his own company, Vicenzo Lancia was originally working for Fiat as a test track driver. His driving skills impressed his bosses so much that they asked him to drive a Fiat in one of their first race. His interest for mechanics and engineering dated back to his childhood, so in 1906, with his friend Claudio Fogolin he founded his own car company, Lancia.
Vicenzo’s passion for engineering allowed him to design some of the most interesting cars of the time. Lancia’s first car, the 12hp Alpha, was a masterpiece of ingenuity. This car war excessively light as a result of the innovative tubular front axle in comparison of the solid steel that were commonly used by the other car makers. His engine was also somewhat of a masterpiece, it was reliable, yet surprisingly responsive.
It took the company only six other years to come up with another revolutionary feature. With the Theta, Lancia offered Europe the first vehicle standard equipped with a built-in electrical system. Then, in 1922, the Lambda model would feature a marvelous amount of breakthrough. First of all, this model was the first one equipped with a monocoque type body. The Lambda was also equipped with a sliding pillar suspension system and a cutting edge narrow V4 engine.
When Lancia creator unexpectedly died of a heart attack in 1937, his wife and son took the helm of the company. Following these events, the family hired former Alfa Romeo employee Vittorio Jano and the lancia car started participating in rally races. Despite the fact that the cars were noteworthy the production methods were increasing in cost and the company was forced to accept a take-over bid from fellow Italian Fiat in 1969.
This take over by Fiat did not affect Lancia in the long run as it kept the two companies as distinct entities. During the following years, Lancia continued its racing endeavors proceeding to win multiple World Rally Championship.
