Lancia Fulvia Sport 1.3S Zagato

The Fulvia, introduced at the 1963 Geneva Auto Show, was the final model designed and launched by Lancia prior to its acquisition by Fiat in 1969. The final version of the Fulvia was the Sport model, which was designed by Ercole Spada(also the designer of the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato) and built by Zagato for Lancia. The Fulvia engines utilise a unique narrow angle V-4 design that uses a single cylinder head that incorporates dual overhead camshafts.

The Fulvia Sport coupés were popular in European endurance racing and enjoyed numerous wins on the continent. The Zagato-built Sport coupé achieved first in its class at the 1968, 1969 and 1971 Targa Florio, a second place in its class finish at the 1969 12 Hours of Sebring and first in its class at the 1969 24 Hours at Daytona.
