Not sure if this has already been posted, but tells the story of a
link between a champion cyclist, the 2nd World War, Pininfarina,
a beautiful Lancia and the Jaguar XK120.

It makes a good story, but the Jaguar XK120 was launched about the same time as this Aprilia was built; the XK120 design can be linked back to a pre-war Jaguar SS100 coupe, which in turn can be linked to other Italian coachbuilt cars of the late 1930s ... Basically there was a common design theme running through several makes and models way before this Aprilia saw the road.

1953 Lancia Appia Series 1
1931 Austin Seven deluxe saloon
1914 Saxon Model A roadster

(previously owned Lancias: 1958 Appia Pininfarina coupe, 1987 Delta LX, 1986 Delta cabriolet, 1991 Dedra 1.8, 1993 Dedra 1.6)

It is beautiful though!
Some of this design lineage goes back to the BMW 328 of the 1930's, a Schuco clockwork version of which I had when I were a lad.
