Lancia stand at Turin Motor Show.

Kolejna modernizacja Aurelii obejmuje nowy silnik o większej pojemności, tylne zawieszenie De Dion, reflektory, owiewki na oknach itp. Ten sam typ zawieszenia znalazł się też w Coupé B20 GT.
Piękny prototyp B24 Spider został zaprojektowany przez Pinin Farinę.


Lancia introduced the second series et the Aurelia, which incorporates a slightly larger and more powerful version of the 60-degree V-six engine, the bore being increased from 72 to 75 mm and the stroke from 81.5 to 85.5 mm (2,266 c.c.). With a compression ratio of 7.4 to I the output is 87 b.h.p. at 4,300 r.p.m. and the maximum torque 117.5 lb ft at 2,900 r.p.m. Another important change is in the rear axle and suspension layout; the clutch, gear box and final drive unit, with brake drum; and swinging half-shafts, remain unaltered, but a de Dion type axle is now used and carries half-elliptic springs. A Panhard rod and telescopic dampers inclined forwards locate the axle.
The Grand Turismo model has the same rear end layout and the engine remains as formerly at 2,451 c.c., the bore and stroke being 78 x 85.5 mm. With 8 to 1 compresion the output is 118 b.h.p. at 5,000 r.p.m. Detail coachwork alterations include a bolder front wing treatment with traffic and indicator lamps of larger size set below the built-in head lamps, improved rear wings and a larger luggage locker.
The Lancia Appia remains unaltered and is proving to be popular in its class.
