It is certainly unique. Very little use and very few owners.
I'd love to see more pictures.
Anybody know this car?

A triumph of style over aerodynamics!
It's a compliment to Lancia that coachbuilders designs are rarely as good as the factory version. Same applies to Jaguars.

Hmm, more American glitz than Italian elegance.

To me the curved windscreen is at odds with the straight body lines, it’s a bit too slab-sided for my liking

'Linea Tesa' is not a favourite style of mine. Does anyone remember how this look was received at the time, before knife edge styling became popular later on? Did it make the more rounded designs look old fashioned? I expect it gave a sense of sweeping away the ordinary.

I suspect this car was influential in the development of the sharp edge, slab sides style that evolved in the US and UK in the mid 60's and 70's.
I suppose if you're doing a design exercise to show your new direction , you need to do an extreme version first that attracs attention, then the big manufacturers call up and ask for a toned down version.
