Looking at it today that gear lever looked odd.   Look at the engine shot.  Do you think that's an inline gearbox?  If so you'd suspect something dull as a rear axle...   Anyone able to tell if it's a Lancia front axle?  There's sight of a steering box.

Good spot David, it certainly looks like a bell-housing on the back of the block, which implies some bespoke casting and  machining.  I'm surprised they bothered to go to the trouble rather than use an Aurelia transaxle.  Shame!

Is it a tad 'silk purse/sows ear', or am I being a bit picky. Removing the basic elements that made the Aurelia what it is, seems a bit pointless, regardless of how it looks !

Kevin - I agree...  Does it still have the sliding pillars?

This car was offered for sale by the Italian Classic Car dealer Luzzago a few years ago, when it was described as
a Fiat 1100E chassis (see the number), with a 4-speed gearbox from a 1962 Fiat 1500/Osca, new Borrani wheels from a  Maserati A6GCS, and custom brakes Fiat 508C derived. It had no documents. The car was built in the 1980's as a recreation by Giordanengo, with an aluminium body similar to a Ferrari 375MM by Pininfarina.
The only Lancia part in the car is the engine, which is indeed from an Aurelia, probably a saloon, but I would need the actual number to be certain.

Buy the way, the car is offered at the Karl Ritter Collection in Austria.

So, there are probably more than a few degrees extra rather than the standard 6 (of separation) between this car and Fangios Carreramobile !!
Why not simply describe it as a Fiat 1100 'Special' with a Lancia engine.

Kevin,

Why not?  Perhaps because so described it failed to sell...and how many people are placed to appreciate what a difference the transaxle and inboard brakes make?   You more than I, but we are two of the few to have given a B20 a real pasting over closed roads.

A small Aurelia engine and Aprilia axles should be good.  How fragile is that back axle?
