That is unbelieveable...the people who can pay this sort of money are effectively recession proof!

Well, that's the thing I suppose : it's unrestored and only 28k on the clock !

It doesn't need restoration, it needs conservation!!
Compare this one with the over restored, non original colour, non original wheels one that RM sold for $825,000 last weekend.
If I was spending over £500,000 on an Aurelia Spider I know which one I would rather have.

 Cheesy I do agree on the conservation, just think its unlikely.

Agree on the RM car, really looks a bit false.

I agree so much on that Ade, that's why I bought the Delta LX I did and that's why it's staying as it is Smiley

I cannot see how you can do conservation on that spider. Judging from the photos on the Gooding website, it is too far gone. It needs a complete restoration, by the best people.

If you assume you do it all for 250'000 USD, ballpark figure, this gives the happy buyer ownership of the first 1 Million Dollar Aurelia spider: congratulations!

I still hope we will in a few years see it driven and enjoyed on the road, and not just on trailers or shipped from Pebble Beach to Villa d'Este.

Agreed Sebastien......and what a wonderful starting point for a restoration! I will continue to dream about finding such a car.

January 22, 2013 at 11:57 am Imagine what his ’53 Porsche 356 would have been worth in a similar configuration. Seems such a shame that of all cars to survive like this, a Lancia would be one of them; these cars were rubbish when new and they are simply old rubbish.

January 22, 2013 at 7:10 pm I’d have to agree with you, Josh. I drove one of these we took in on trade back in the late 50s’ and understood immediately why the owner traded it. There’s a good reason for all the jokes about Italian cars of that era, they were beautiful to look at but otherwise RUBBISH as you said. The trade was for a 58 MB 220s coupe in Cocoa and Sable. He was real happy…we on the other hand wound up having to give it away at auction after two dissatisfied owners returned it.

Two considered or baseless views of the time? Or two people who just re-inforce stereotypes of Italian cars of a certain ilk?

When they go to a certain age/state....where they rubbish  as any worn /neglected car of any type might be....or?

Or, they were people so utterly biased against anything not home grown to be completely set against anything foreign?

Aurelia 4th series


« Reply #10 on: 28 January, 2013, 07:45:02 PM »

Good to see a Spider in America with the 'normal' 4th series wheels - so much nicer than the wires that most auction cars seem to have now. They really have moved in to the trophy category now so I wonder how much mileage these cars will do in the future.....but perhaps that's not important to the buyers. Anyway, the B20 is a far more practical proposition if you want to go Grand Touring!

The web magazine Sportscar Digest has reviews by their auction editor, Rick Carey, of both spiders that sold in Arizona this year.

The barnfind at Goodings (B24S-1123):

The older restoration, dark blue with the strange wire wheels at RM (B24S-1131):

Still, I would rather have the red one - I really do not like wires on a B24
