Lancia Automobiles S.P.A.—previously known as Lancia u0026amp; Co.—was started in an effort to provide better racing cars for racing enthusiasts in Turin, Italy. Creating an automobile that was lightweight and inexpensive was the aim.
The first car manufactured by Lancia was a Tipo 51. Featuring a side-valve straight 4-engine with a top speed of 55 mph, the Tipo 51 gave Lancia’s reputation a boost in the auto industry.
In 1937, Vincenzo Lancia had a heart attack and died at the age of 56. Not long after Lancia’s death, auto manufacturing was halted due to World War II.
Vincenzo Lancia’s son sought advice from Alfa Romeo designer Vittorio Jano, after the war. Jano helped develop a new V6 engine that boosted Lancia’s status in racing.
1969 proved to be an essential year in Lancia’s history as the company accepted a bid from Fiat to save themselves from financial instability. Lancia ended up benefitting from Fiat’s access to Ferrari technology.
