The Aurelia is a car that was produced by the Italian car maker Lancia, between the years of 1950 and 1958. One notable trait that gives it a place in automotive history is that it was the first production car to come with a V6 engine. It came in several configurations, such as a 4-door saloon, 2-door GT coupé called the B20, and a 2-door Spider convertible. The Aurelia was named after the ancient Roman road, the Via Aurelia, which lead from Rome to Pisa.
The cars were quite powerful for their day. The convertible, for example, came with RWD (rear- wheel drive) and a manual 4-speed gearbox. It used gasoline in its engine, which had a displacement of 2451 cm3 / 149.7 cui. Its advertised power was 82.5 kW / 111 hp / 112 PS ( CUNA ) and it produced torque of 172 Nm / 127 lb-ft. Its top speed was 175 km/h (109 mph) as declared by the factory. It could go from 0- 60 mph in a quite respectable 12.8 seconds and had a 0- 100 km/h 13.6 second time. Its 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) was 19.2 seconds.
One of the most distinctive Aurelias built was the Lancia Aurelia Spider (B24) built between 1954 and 1955. It featured a panoramic front windscreen, unique two-piece chrome bumpers, removable side screens, and a convertible soft top. A 1955 Aurelia Spider was recently sold at Gooding and Company auctions for $1,815,000.
The Aurelia was a model that put Lancia on the map of car makers in Italy. It had a production run of over 18,000 units, making it one of the most popular Lancia model series ever.
