Certainly a mouth watering line up and they all look immaculate too!

Where is it? I thought Japan, but if so why is everything LHD, particularly Betas which were readily available in RHD.

Anyone point me to the mfr. of the tail lights fitted to the Ardea? They look OK for my Aprilia when I get to that stage. Thanks.

Wow, what a feast for sore eyes, some lovely photography, and a fabulous line up too, thanks for posting the link Brian.

Am sure Lancia's history in Japan would make a fascinating read.

Nice cars, good photographer, thank you Brian for the link!

What is missing: No Lambda, no early car (Artena, Astura, Augusta) apart from Aprilia and Ardea, no Aurelia berlina

Interesting to see the immaculate Ypsilons, Libra and Thesis.

In answer to the question about right-hand-drive the rule of the road in Japan is drive on the left, so RHD is the norm. British Leyland made this mistake in the 1980s when they tied to enter the Japanese market with the Rover SD1. A whole ship-load were made and sent to Japan with what they thought was Japanese spec, only to discover their mistake and bring them all back! When the Japanese economy was booming in the mid 1980s there was a demand for Zagato bodied Fulvias and Flavias, and quite a few went that way. At that time they favoured LHD because they wanted these cars to stand out as not being Japanese made!

Amazing line-up - what's interesting is to me is the Euro-spec integrales ? Japanese spec have the different sized front lights and indicators lower down on the wings ...

All thanks to Alan Cooper my usual source of Lancia photos off the internet and facebook.
I'd like to take the Ardea home! although I could be tempted by the lovely 2c.

Just to echo the LHD comment - the Japanese seem to prefer the specialist/exotic cars in LHD.
