FCA talks about Lancia one year on from Heritage
A busy year upholding the history of the Lancia brand
One year has passed since the launch of the Classic Car Services dedicated to owners of historic Lancias: Certificate of Origin, Certification of Authenticity, and Restoration and Repair.

In that time, almost a hundred classic Lancia owners have taken advantage of the new services by entrusting their cars to the hands of our expert mechanics.
Among them Miki Biasion, world rally champion with Lancia in 1988 and 1989, who decided to certify the authenticity of his perfectly preserved Fulvia CoupŤ Safari, a limited edition car, which was built in 1976.

Our Officine Classiche workshops have also been involved in restoring and fine-tuning a number of splendid models from the FCA Heritage collection, which subsequently participated in major international events dedicated to classic cars throughout Europe.

To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Aprilia, a major milestone in Lancia's history, the team restored a first series model that later took part in the 2017 edition of the Mille Miglia.
Also present at the Mille Miglia was and designer and maker of bespoke bicycles Helio Ascari - descendant of the great Alberto, the only driver to have won the prestigious Brescia competition with Lancia - at the wheel of a wonderful Aurelia B24 Spider.

Spectators at the Goodwood Festival of Speed were treated to the roar of the extraordinary Ferrari-built engine that powers the 1983 LC2, the extremely rare Lancia Group C Endurance that rivalled Porsche on the world's leading circuits during the 1980s. The car, with completely reconditioned mechanics, thrilled the thousands of enthusiasts who saw it running up the famous Goodwood hill.

At the Gran Premio Nuvolari FCA Heritage fielded the glorious Aurelia B20, the archetypal 1950s grand tourer. The car was driven by Roberto Giolito, head of the Heritage department, and Daniele Audetto, formerly Lancia's team manager in the Seventies and co-driver of great rally champions such as Sandro Munari and Amilcare Ballestrieri.

With the Lancia Classiche programme, FCA Heritage makes a daily commitment to celebrate and showcase the cars and people who have shaped the history of the Lancia brand. Your Classic Lancia also deserves to be unique. Request a Certificate of Origin for your car and entrust it to the expert mechanics of the Officine Classiche workshops to restore its original elegance and certify its value.
