Hi All,

I've received an email from a non-member (in Denmark) asking for help , if anyone has any knowledge then that'd be great - just post a reply onto this thread (I can supply an email address too if needed):

"I do sincerely hope that someone with a historic knowledge of Lancia is able to help me.
In the English Octane issue from February 2013 and the Italian Automobilisme
D╚poca from June same year, was there articles about one of Pinin Farinas
stylist / designers Aldo Bovarone.
Her there was a reference to a Lancia cabriolet build in 1956, a one off.
Don't know if it was a B24 or an early Flaminia.

The car was designed by Aldo Bovarone for the actress Brigitte Bardot.

I have tried to trace this design. But I am  unlucky. I have only been able
to find a picture of a one off Lancia designed by Pinin Farina.The Marcello
Mastroianni spider from 1958/59

I would hope that you are able to help, or can forward this mail to someone
that can answer the question.

with regards
Bjarke Aunsbj°rn"

I am not sure if this is the car you are thinking of, but there was a one off Aurelia Convertible which Bridget Bardot owned, it was a modified B24 convertible with Flaminia style grille and enlarged rear fins.  Pictures below. It appears in photos to be either a grey or white, but is probably the same car resprayed for different motor shows.
