Seriously: ’65 Lancia Flavia Sport Zagato
As each day passes, we become increasingly skeptical of Craigslist ads. We like to think this one is real and it probably is. But there are some bizarre references in the listing to make one wonder. For argument sake, let’s pretend it is real. Many of our readers are familiar with cars designed by Zagato. Some say they are among the most daring designs ever to come from Italy. And others are less enthusiastic. Today’s listing is one of those unusual designs that might not appeal to everyone but they sure are rare. And to make this one even more rare, it is right hand drive. Today’s Flavia Sport has been restored and depending on who you talk to the restoration receipts total either $42,000 or $60,000. The restoration work looks spot on. These are lightweight aluminum bodies so the 100bhp, 1.8 liter flat 4 provides enough scoot to make it interesting. The seller is looking for $90,000 in $100 dollar bills. Don’t know if he is kidding on the denomination. We were not able to find any previous auction sale that comes anywhere near the asking price. The price guides certainly don’t support that. But it is rare and would probably do well at a big auction where the seller might get lucky and have 2 wealthy individuals in the room that appreciate the unique styling and excellent build quality.
