Lancia Aprilia Bilux

Few weeks after the end of the war in 1945 Pinin Farina starts the production with the Lancia Aprilia Bilux.
Italy, a defeated country, is excluded from participating in the Paris Motor Show. Pinin and his son Sergio set off from Turin for France driving two new cars, an Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 S and a Lancia Aprilia cabriolet. When they reach the Grand Palais in Paris they park the two cars in front of the entrance of the Motor Show, where anyone going in or out can see and admire them. It is a great success, commented on by the French press: ”Ce diable de Farina a ouvert son antisalon personnel”.
