Lancia Aurelia B24S Spyder America

Favoured transport of the era's 'jeunesse dorée', the glamorous Lancia B24 Aurelia Spyder America was built just in 1954/5 and only 240 ever left Lancia’s Turin works. Until 1954 Lancia had concentrated on producing innovative, high performance motor cars for the European market, but in acknowledgement of the growing US market, in 1954 they introduced left-hand cars to their model range for the first time (until then wealthy European buyers had favoured right-hand drive). Aimed squarely at the lucrative yet demanding US market for open sports cars, the new Aurelia Spyder America was offered from late 1954 featuring the mechanical underpinnings of the race proven B20GT (popular with Grand Prix drivers of the era and a giant killer in events such as the Mille Miglia) clothed in voluptuous new two seater coachwork by master carrozziere Pinin Farina. Distinctive touches included the panoramic windscreen, removable side screens and skimpy soft top, stylish quarter bumpers only and a soft, flowing wing line which would influence the design of other Italian sports cars (such as Pinin Farin’s California Spyder for Ferrari) later in the 1950s. Of just 240 Spyder Americas built, 181 were left hand drive B24S models (‘S’ for ‘sinistra’) and the remaining 59 were right-hand drive B24 models. A number of brand new Spyders destined for the USA were lost on the ill-fated ocean liner Andrea Doria, which contributes to the model’s low survival rate: perhaps 150 cars are believed to survive worldwide today.
