A rather strange frontal treatment to this Flaminia Touring for sale.

IMHO it doesn't suit it at all, looks like a later style has been added to an earlier vehicle. but certainly unique.

An interesting bit of work which from many angles looks quite good ........ but I think that the front end looks a little heavy and the overhang is too great, especially when compared with the rear. However, do remember I am a Civil Engineer, so I really should not comment on aesthetics !!

It is a pity that there is no special mention of the front end or a clue as to when it was done and by whom.

Actually I dont think it looks bad at all. Sort of period Ferrari or Maserati in profile at the front. You could park it behind a wall and leave the nose sticking out and fool a few people...although I can't think of any benefit of doing that and people woudl miss out on a perfectly good Flaminia!

Yes I do rember a Ferrari with a similar front end, it does look a little to long on the overhang but I quite like it. Smiley

First series Ferrari 330GT meets Flaminia Touring - not a good look IMHO

And the question is why?
