Ade, was being facetious, having owned DS/Cx's and 2CVs for a period of nearly 10 years off and on,  am well aware of what body roll/soft ride is,  and in relative terms the B12 doesn't look too bad, but it was of its day and thats how they were set up.

Agreed, the B12 doesn't roll as much as a Citroen. Grin

Off topic but I loved Dyanes back in the day and loved their roll but I never was in a position to see how the steering coped. It seems to develop a lot of toe-out on extreme angles from your excellent photo.

Back on topic I thought my B12 lent into roundabouts and exits a lot so am comforted that this is a characteristic and that I can put a rebuild of the sliding pillar on the back burner. I was mightly impressed with the handling especially on fast corners, but it does feel like it wants to understeer on slow tight ones. Maybe I should be using more throttle - but it was early days in getting to know the car.

On a slightly different tack, I subscribe to the other Classic car magazine as normally I enjoy its selection of cars and find the articles of more interest, but having enjoyed nearly as much the Rolls Royce Phantom II Continental article, I've now subscribed to Classic and Sports car too!

Tim - Once you get the measure of it I'd have a chat with Tim Burrett about the handling, tyre pressures, toe in / out, damper settings, driving style.  Maybe have him try it for an opinion.

I was tempted to put a Photoshopped ticket on the screen for parking in Portofino. Very nice though. If only............

The main photo was taken 10 days before Christmas 2 years ago. It was a grey day in the early evening, so there was hardly anyone about, but it was fantastic to be able to walk around without the crowds. The hotels are also very cheap at this time of year, although there was only one restaurant open...... we had a good meal though!

Season's greetings to all us lucky B12 owners!
For too long the B12 has been ignored; thank goodness that Ade's magnificent example has thrown the spotlight on this great car.
Happy Lancia motoring in 2018 to all.
Brian Long.

Thats fantastic. Years ago, my son and I drove from Torino down to Sienna, and he picked this "spot of green" to stop and see nature. Trapped for a while in a sea of vespas, we managed to find some green, some blue water, and a lot of people, no interesting cars! Beautiful spot, must have been lovely off season.

They're beautiful cars. They look imposing enough to have been used for high-ranking government officials. Were they ever?

Thank you Frank. We are just trying to motivate you over the line. You have done the easy bit (bet it didn't feel like it!) putting it together will take super human effort but you are more than up to the challenge. In bocca al lupo!!!
