Among its many “first”, Lancia’s Lambda presented a weight-bearing, torpedo body forming a single, light and rigid union between the chassis and the shell. Its other features included the boxed boot with an antitorsion function, and the central driveshaft tunnel, which made the Lambda much lower than its contemporaries. This chassis was fitted out by Lancia as required for shows and exhibitions. It offers an even better idea of the extraordinary nature of Vincenzo Lancia’s masterpiece, which made a major contribution to the development of the modern motor car.
