LANCIA BETA from £2,767
First new Lancia to appear after the fusion with Fiat, the Beta has proved remarkably popular with Lancia enthusiasts although many mechanical features are more Fiat than Lancia. The economy 1300 replaces the original 1400 while the top models, saloon or HPE "sports station wagon" now have 2-litre engines instead of 1800. Pininfarina has re-worked the rear end to give a slimmer line and a deeper back window.

LANCIA BETA MONTE CARLO £5,500
Lancia and Pininfarina make enthusiasts' dreams come true by putting this vision of future sports cars into production today. It is full of interesting features. The resilient black nose contains the radiator and an air duct to cool the mid engine compartment via the centre tunnel. There are two versions, the hard top coupe or the cabriolet with soft top retracting into the roll arch.

5° Rallye internazionale di Sicilia winners.


...ten okrzyk kibiców włoskich co chwilę można było słyszeć w czasie ostatniego Rajdu Monte Carlo, bo też i 44 RMC zapisał się w bogatej tradycji tej imprezy absolutną dominacją Lancii Stratos i nokautującym przeciwników stylem jazdy gwiazdy nr 1 - Sandro Munariego. Z 23 odcinków specjalnych na wszystkich etapach tego rajdu Sandro Munari ze swoim partnerem Sylvio Maiga tylko 8 razy nie był pierwszy, a i w tych przypadkach z reguły odstawał od czołówki o kilka zaledwie sekund. Poza nim w Lanciach Stratos, finansowanych przez włoskie linie lotnicze "Alitalia" startowali Waldegaard z Hasse Thorseliusem oraz Bernard Darniche z Alainem Mahe. I te trzy załogi rozgrywały 44 Rajd Monte Carlo między sobą, z tym, że oczywiście Munari był liderem grupy.
