10th place – Jack Shepherdson’s Top 10 Classic Grand Touring Cars
Vincenzo Lancia’s vision was to innovate; to create cars using clever engineering principles. The Fulvia Sport 1,3 Zagato epitomises this. With its narrow angle V4 engine, it was the perfect sports car for the discerning enthusiast. The Fulvia’s clever engineering was topped off with a hand crafted Zagato body, straight out of old Italy. It isn’t conventionally beautiful, but definitely pretty.
Despite being at the time priced above a Jaguar E-Type, Lancia built and sold a couple thousand Zagato’s, loved by those who appreciated the incredible engineering and build quality of the Lancia Fulvia Zagato.
