|Lancia Aurelia B24S Spyder America
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
